    Where does the flushed water go!?

    I flushed the toilet (with milk in) and then ran to the manhole the plumber was observing. I saw some light water running but no milk. I think the plumber proved this was not the manhole because he put in a very long pipe, which lead to another manhole i.e. no my downstairs toilet.

    @terryplumb, I was with the plumber and we looked at every manhole nearby. I have lived in the property since 2014. I have had no problems until now.

    Where does the flushed water go!?

    @Chis_W, thanks for the reply. I put milk in the toilet (because the plumber had no dye at hand). I asked about putting a camera in the toilet, but the plumber said this would not work?

    Where does the flushed water go!?

    I have a problem with the downstairs toilet i.e. it takes a long time for water to drain away and loo roll does not flush. I have two toilets upstairs with no problems. I have home emergency cover on my home insurance and a plumber visited today. He lifted the manhole in the back garden and...

    Damaged one "tile" in kitchen vinyl floor.

    I will have to fix it sooner rather than later, so I am thinking sooner. It is very unsightly even though it can be covered by the bin.

    Damaged one "tile" in kitchen vinyl floor.

    I had Vinyl flooring fitted in my kitchen in 2015. A few days ago I cooked myself a baked potato in the microwave (as I have done many times before!). However, after ten minutes (2 x 5 minutes) + 2 minutes cooling; the potato was black! Therefore I put the potato in the bin and microwaved...

    I bought a house in 2014 with a camera beside the front door. I have never looked into how this works (up to now). Next to my TV in the living room; I see this the panel shown in the first photo. Note there are three ports that are not used i.e. SAT (I have a satellite but don't use it; FM...

    How can I reset the burglar alarm code?

    @sparkymarka, there is an X on the keypad. Therefore I will try: 1, then 4, then 7, then X tomorrow (to avoid the risk of disturbing my neighbours at night). Why would two people be needed? I assume this is because there is a time limit between shutting off the power and entering the 1,4,7,X...

    How can I reset the burglar alarm code?

    @sparkymarka, With regards to step 4 of: 'Resetting to factory defaults'; I assume that 'No' means number and is a superfluous word? i.e. there is no action required for this word? i.e. all that is required for step 4 is to enter: 1 then 4 then 7 and that is it? I just want to be clear. I...

    How can I reset the burglar alarm code?

    @sparkymarka, thanks! Is this the documentation: http://www.autoguardalarms.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/gardtec-eurosec-CP8L-LCD-engineer-man.pdf. The reason I ask is because the doc says CPL8L (note the L on the end).

    How can I reset the burglar alarm code?

    @sparkymarka, please see a photo attached. I thought I would add it in case the exact model number can be identified from it. could you confirm what you mean by a PCB swop? I have not tried any code yet. The battery has recently gone flat and the alarm is a bit temperamental at the moment...

    How can I reset the burglar alarm code?

    I bought a house in 2014 and the previous owner did not know the code so I have never used it. However, my research is telling me that I should be able to reset the code. I am trying to find some documentation explaining how to do this (hopefully some user documentation exists). The following...

    Diverter Valve

    Thanks. Do you know how much it is likely to cost (approximately) to fix the boiler expansion vessel? Do I need to flush the system? Thanks again.

    Diverter Valve

    The original plumber is finally available this week and is visiting on Friday. I bled a few of my radiators at the weekend. Since I did this the pressure seems to increase to 2.7 when the heating is on and then falls back to normal levels once the pressure is switched off - one one occasion it...

    How much does a Diverter Valve and Cartridge cost for a Potterton Powermax HE 85 CP?

    I posted this question in September: https://www.diynot.com/diy/threads/diverter-valve.509393/ The answerer talked about diverter valves and cartridges. I have a few questions: 1) What the difference is between a diverter valve and a cartridge? 2) Why could the cartridge fail independently of...

    Diverter Valve

    May I ask what it depends on? As previously stated I have a Potterton Powermax HE and it was installed 2002-2003. The reason I ask is because I am trying to decide if I should take issue with the plumber who installed a new diverter valve 2.7 years ago. Thanks for your responses.
