    Velux Dormer Windows

    Hi, does anyone have any experience of these? I've proposed them in our loft conversion but to date haven't found a single builder who's heard of them let alone installed. Velux have nowhere to go and view them so my only reference point is their marketing material. They look amazing but nervous...

    Hi - it can't be the mains water. When we disconnect the dishwasher (ie turn the blue lever), the water is fine.

    Polluted drinking water from Dishwasher

    The plumber did solder the pipework. If the soldering flux goes away with time then this is not the problem. We had the kitchen fitted and dishwasher installed 2 months ago. The taste would have gone by now. We are only getting around to addressing this now as we've been busy with other...

    Polluted drinking water from Dishwasher

    Hi, I'll have to check if there's a screw on the valve when i get home. However, I do trust my plumber. He said he fitted a double check valve so I have no reason not to believe him. He's fairly insistant that it's a fault with the dishwasher although as I've previously mentioned...

    Polluted drinking water from Dishwasher

    I've just found this on a website... • You should isolate the hose using the valve that turns off the cold water to the appliance. If the cold tap water is then satisfactory you have found the cause. The solution is to fit a non-return valve so that water standing in the hoses does not get...

    Polluted drinking water from Dishwasher

    Hi Andy, To clarify, is the water inlet the dark grey pipe in the first photo? I'm assuming inlet means that the water goes in to the machine from this pipe as opposed to out. You think the taste is residue from inside the pipe? Is that correct? If yes to both, does that mean that...

    Polluted drinking water from Dishwasher

    Regsmyth - by disconnecting I just mean turning the blue lever. I know, it's a real thinker! I'm going crazy because we have a brand new dishwasher that we can't use unless we compromise having drinking water!

    Polluted drinking water from Dishwasher

    The taps are new, the dishwasher is new and as far as I know al the pipework is new. The first picture shows a close up of the copper pipe (I don't know if any soldering was involved). The second pic shows a close up of the 'black pipe' you saw through the hole. This is connected to the...

    Polluted drinking water from Dishwasher

    Hi, I recently had a dishwaser installed as part of a kitchen re-fit. I'm not sure if this is relevant but it's a Beko DSFS1531W_WH Prior to install the drinking water was fine. Since install it's not. When we disconnect the dishwasher the drinking water returns to normal. Our...

    Filling in electrician's chase

    Hi, thanks for the reply. Yes, the electrician recommended that I use bonding and easifill and I made him aware that I would be filling the voids myself. Do I need to prepare the chase with pva before I fill? I'm finding mixed opinions when i google this. From my point of view the less...

    Filling in electrician's chase

    Hi, I'm currently getting my flat re-wired and I've opted to fill in the electrician's chase myself - paying someone is simply not an option (unfortunately)! I've been told to use bonding and then easifill. Any tips? The electrican is going to 2nd fix all the sockets / switches. I assume...
