    Gutter Downpipe Adapter

    The rubber reducers i put a link up for above. There is a 70mm down to 60mm. Then you can put the 70mm over the 68 and the 60mm end into the 63 and seal. If im correctly understanding the orientation of the pipes then it shouldnt leak.

    Gutter Downpipe Adapter

    Not ideal, but maybe something like this as a last resort if you cant find an actual adaptor. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/JJC-Straight-Length-Reducer-Silicone-Silicon-Hose-Rubber-Coolant-Radiator-Pipe/360608811461?hash=item53f5f5c9c5:g:kiAAAOSwK~RZ6N9z

    Verge clips

    Rarely used them in the past but is becoming more common practice (at least with the company i work for) to use them on most interlocking tiles. We use eave, verge and tile clips.

    Any tips on replacing my tiled shed roof with felt?

    Another option could be to put firlings in to raise the pitch then put original roof back on with new felt and batten if necesary. Noticed you said about brickwork after raising. Use facia to cover after raising roof.

    electric towel rail too hot

    I think i will fit a new element ( cant do any harm and i doubt its ever been changed) and also a controller for added adjustment. This way i can use it "safely" in my situation and not worry about the boy or the dog. Will do it at the end of the month and let you know how i get on, hopefully...

    electric towel rail too hot

    I dont need it to heat the room so im happy if i can just get it to dry items hanging on it and not burn anyone. Thats the perfect solution

    electric towel rail too hot

    I want it to be on so i can use it for its intended purpose but i have a dog and toddler at home. I dont want either of them to burn themselves with it. So i want to be able to lower the temperature so it atleast wont burn them if they were to get to it.

    electric towel rail too hot

    Thank you for your reply. Would you recommend any? Are they universal or do i need to get one specific to my towel rail? I assume then that it is filled through the bottom where the element goes in? Do you know what the screw on the top does? Sorry for all the questions, just want to be sure...

    electric towel rail too hot

    My towel rail gets too hot to touch. Its electric, no water feed so i assume its water filled. Is there anyway to lower the temperature? I have provided a picture of a screw/valve? Situated on the top of the towel rail. Didnt want to touch it, but is that possibly a way to do it? Any help...
