    Filling space UNDER plasterboard

    I was considering something similar but actually cutting out the plasterboard same size as the metal plates of the pull up bar and puting in spacers made out of wood to sit flush with the plasterboard.

    Filling space UNDER plasterboard

    My bar has approx 25cmx10cm metal plates that sit on the wall. Due to limited space the design you have shown will not fit. Even this one might break the plasterboard at the bottom fixing.

    Filling space UNDER plasterboard

    I want to attach a pull up bar to a wall. It's a brick wall that had plasterboard attached to it rather than rendered. When I drill into the wall there is approximately 10mm gap of empty space between the plasterboard and the wall. I suspect that the plasterboard will crumble if the pull up...

    I have a 2x4m brick shed build on a concrete slab which gets very wet during rainy weather. During dry weather there is no visible dampness at all.

    Do I have a leak in central heating?

    My Greenstar 42CDi boiler is 6 month old and was installed together with brand new central heating system and plumbing when the house was redone. At the begining there was one leak in the central heating system and it was fixed. At that time pressure was dropping to 0 within 24h period. After it...

    Air collecting in radiator??

    Ok, some more info. I did a test which i just read about. I put a lighter next to the vent when bleeding the radiator and the gas lit up. The flame was shooting like from a gas burner! Does this mean some corrosion? The whole system has been drained at least 10 times since it's been installed...

    Air collecting in radiator??

    We had a new central heating system fitted when we redone the whole house about 4 month ago. It included new boiler, pipes and radiators. Right from the begining there was a leak in one of the soldered joints but that got fixed. What I have been noticing since then is that the bathroom radiator...

    Worcester 35CDi problems

    My boiler is quite old now and it started playing up. For some time now when I switch the central heating on, it doesn't always reach the full temperature. The radiators maybe only get half hot. When I observe what the boiler does, the burner comes on for about a minute and then switches off and...

    Worcester 35CDi central heating not hot enough??

    I bought a house with a Worcester 35CDi boiler which produces very hot water in taps but it feel that the central heating does not get hot enough. The radiators have been canged to new ones, the system has been bled and pressure is ok. What I think is the problem is that the boiler heats up the...

    Can these radiators be balanced?

    I'm trying to balance all the radiators in my house and I have read a few FAQ on how to do it but i've run into a problem. Most of the radiators have TVR valves fitted and they are fitted on the outlet pipe and not the inlet pipe. Can such radiators be balanced? I always keep the TVR valves on...
