    Mira Advanced shower has stopped draining water

    Water comes out of shower fine but the drainage function has just stopped. This has happened before and a plumber fixed it immediately. However, I didn't ask them how they did it because at the time there were several other problems with the shower. I've tried long pressing the shower button...

    Does this look like asbestos?

    Hi all, I was hoping I could get some thoughts about the ceiling in this airing cupboard. I'm suspecting possible Artex based off its appearance and the building's age. The area in the lefthand corner looks uneven and different. I remember that corner looking patchy when I first moved in...

    Does this plastic part underneath kitchen sink come off?

    I'm cleaning the plastic pipes underneath my kitchen sink and would like to remove this white plastic part. I've tried twisting it and pulling but that hasn't worked. Would this part be detachable or is it integrated? Thanks.

    How to increase water flow on a mira shower?

    The water wasn't draining away properly so as a temporary measure they turned the tap down. I'm guessing the stop tap is the copper pipe? What does the Whale box control and what is the white tap below the stop tap? Thanks.

    How to increase water flow on a mira shower?

    I would like to increase the flow/velocity of water coming from my shower. A plumber came round a while back for an unrelated shower issue and said they had decreased the flow rate and did this via the airing cupboard.

    Rust on bottom of radiator

    The bottom edge of my bathroom radiator is starting to show signs of rust. It's next to a hand basin so it does get a bit of water on it. After removing the rust and repainting, is there a product I could use to prevent rust from returning? Thanks.

    Uneven flow of water in kitchen taps

    The left image shows hot water the right image shows cold water. In both images the handles are turned the same amount but the hot water comes out in a narrower stream that splashes water outside the sink and it stays narrow even when fully opened. I would like to adjust the hot so that it flows...

    I'd like to buy an individual box spanner rather than a set of them to remove this backnut from a small bathroom basin. What size box spanner would do the job? Thanks

    Water in wet room draining slowly

    The water is draining slowly during use and leaving a large puddle. I've tried: liquid drain unblocker, a drain snake and boiling water, two packets of baking soda and white vinegar, but nothing has worked. Could it be a problem with the pump not the drain? I remember having a similar problem...

    Green paint underneath wall paint?

    Hi, in the bathroom where paint is flaking off the walls there is green paint underneath. As it's an older council property I was wondering if this wasn't old paint which might contain lead. It seems odd to have had bathroom walls painted pale green. Is this even paint or something else?

    Combi boiler making hissing noise

    The initial problem was just a radiator that wasn't heating up properly, the technician fixed it in minutes by turning off all other radiators and tinkering with the radiator that wasn't heating up. He didn't go near the boiler. I wonder what could be causing this. I would like to turn off the...

    Combi boiler making hissing noise

    I meant the technician fixed the radiator problem initially so all the radiators work now. Right now they're switched off. The noise is there whether they're turned on or off.
