    Aqualisa visage remote switch

    the rats in the loft have chewed through the comms cable to the remote button. So although there is a sticker on the cable saying don't cut it, my question is can I solder the cables back together or use a connector block? Rather than try and run a new cable?

    2inch Durgo

    Got an issue with svp that builder fitted on brothers extension. Nowhere to terminate 4 inch vent and fitting 4 inch Durgo in en suite is a bit of a pain so am thinking of branching of in 2 inch and then a dugo. Anyone see an issue with that? Cheers, never done it like that before!

    Baxi solo 2 40pf burner keeps cutting out

    Could be the fan Venturi, ntc, or gas valve. No point guessing though so get an engineer in and let him find the fault.

    Water doesn't go all the way around the bowl

    The spreader is the moulding at the top outlet of the pan with the holes around the rim and is part of the pan and should not be loose or plastic. Sound like foreign media stuck to me!

    How to drain CH without a drain valve (to replace TRVs)

    Have you checked outside the building for a drain off? Sometimes we poke them outside. However what you plan to do is fine, you could put a nut and olive on the hose itself and connect it to the rad valve once you have drained the rad. Once connected, open valve and drain system! Easy but u dont...

    Water doesn't go all the way around the bowl

    Sounds like something has been stuck like you say. I've pulled stuff out of the spreader before, normally when kids put stuff in the cistern and it gets pulled through and blocks the spreader. You may need some ingenuity and patients if you want to fix it. Otherwise a new pan.

    What Plumber/Gas Engineer Is Right?!

    Pump for me too! If it's banging its probably because the heat cannot be moved from the boiler quick enough which results in banging because the water is literally boiling/kettling. Also a dirty system can cause the same problem and therefore the boiler will struggle to push the heat around the...

    Low pressure from newly installed kitchen sink mixer

    As gigz said. It has an aerator or a flow straightener, both can get blocked and are at the end of the tap spout that can be removed. I would also check the isolation valves and make sure fully open, Flexi hoses for kinks(unless piped in copper tails).

    Ferroli DOMIcompact F24B - Both fuses blowing on PCB ??

    I don't think I've seen one of these that hasn't got some sort of leak from somewhere in the boiler. You may need to order the O rings from merchant as they may be an odd size.

    Ferroli DOMIcompact F24B - Both fuses blowing on PCB ??

    If you are on about a leak from the secondary heat exchanged to the right of the fan then you will need new O rings in my opinion. You can try and clean them up and grease with silicon grease but I wouldn't risk it for a couple of quid on a new O ring set!

    Water heater leaking

    U normally use a half inch female iron (brass) to connect into those threads. Looks like a nut and olive has been used. Works but not the best way to do it. Although Flexi hoses are used quite often.
