    Soil pipe leaking out the side when I flush

    I've had the house for six years. This has only started happening recently and it's not caused problems before. It's not recently fitted or changed.

    Soil pipe leaking out the side when I flush

    Hello I'd be really grateful for any advice. When we flush our top (loft) floor toilet, we get water and toilet roll shreds sprayed all over the offshot kitchen roof, tracking along the soil pipes and into the guttering (and some onto the path above the main door to the house!). I've not seen...

    Replacing a shower valve.

    I'm all confidence, but don't know a great deal about plumbing. I was hoping someone would say "Turn the water off, drain the shower, unscrew those nuts, take the old one off and screw the new one on. Turn the water back on". Is there a lot more to it than that!? I'm now wondering whether to...

    Replacing a shower valve.

    Thanks for the advice. If anyone can tell me whether the Grohe one is likely to be any good, and whether it'd be easy to fit myself, I'd be grateful. Thanks.

    Replacing a shower valve.

    Just to say: the pressure gauge on the combi boiler itself is 1 bar when the hot water is on. I've no idea whether that's indicative of the water pressure in our system.

    Replacing a shower valve.

    I currently have a Triton Cassini exposed thermostatic mixer shower on the first floor. We have a combi boiler in the kitchen and a new mixer shower in the attic floor. The first floor shower runs fine in the summer but is not going to be hot enough for the coming months' weather. I...

    Kitchen cabinets resting on tiles

    Hello. I've no real way of knowing. Just that the Como range is still on sale. Interesting that it's an older way of fixing them! Any thoughts on whether the tiles had been bearing any load? Thanks.

    Kitchen cabinets resting on tiles

    Thanks for any help on this. We've moved into a house which has a relatively new fitted kitchen. It is a Homebase Como, if that means anything to anyone. I don't have receipts or warranties and I don't know if Homebase's fitters even fitted it. The end wall-unit was really sagging down...

    Zanussi ZSF2450 constant drain pump & constant top filli

    Zanussi ZSF2450. It is a small, one-rack dishwasher with one spray arm, with no small cover plate below the door (pictued at http://content.appliancesonline.co.uk/ProductImages/rvLarge/ZSF2450S_SI_Dishwasher_OPD_AR_L.jpg ). I start a cycle and water fills into the machine. After 90 seconds...

    Clicking radiators

    I know this is a funny time to be thinking about this after that long cold winter, but one of our radiators repeatedly clicks when the heating has just come on. I heard that you can put some kind of thing between the radiator and the wall bracket which stops the noise as the metal expands. Is...

    Bathroom suite quality

    We have got a little ensuite bathroom (shower, toilet, basin) which needs re-doing. There's an old-fashioned shower cubicle which needs demolishing really and a modern type one putting in. Anyway, a few months ago we nearly bought a load of stuff from B&Q when they had discounts on their...

    Hot-cold-hot-cold, even when pressure restored,Worcester 240

    Worcester Bosch 240 Combi RSF The boiler was making groaning noises, the 'hot' water was running cold then hot then cold. Looked at pressure gauge and it was about 0. Restored pressure as per post on here, got it back to the just-more-than-1 indicated by a red marker on the dial. No more...
