    I think you and @Nige F above may well be correct It may actually be reed reinforced and it is horizontal as well. It would be handy to find out the trade name

    Wall composition

    No it's an internal partition From box bedroom to stairs. It's the but that incorporates the stairs box from the sloping section of the stairs. I've drilled through it and it's just the same all the way through

    Wall composition

    Be some wall if it was!! I haven't a clue and nobody else seems to have either. Behind a plasterer you get t see all sorts of odd wall makeups. But I've never come across one like this and done a lot of work on houses around that age as well Round here we see a lot of stramit and paramount...

    Just purchased a new house and started doing some renovation today. I'm a plasterer by trade and in my t8me I've seen walls made of all sorts, hay etc. Today I've come across something I've never seen. Whilst coming up with a cunning plan to pinch a tiny bit of bedroom to fit a staircase...

    Loft staircase query

    Thanks I'm not a big fan of the space saver stairs to be honest. I think for the cost of doing it then putting space saver stairs makes it half a job. But that's my own opinion. I'm lucky in the fact I can do the majority of the work myself so a big cost saving. Also pondering what the...

    If it's not switching when the CH is on then it's still going to be going into the CH. Which is leading me to believe it's got to be either the flow switch and or sensor or the divertor. But I obviously don't want to be changing all of them if it doesn't need it.

    Glow-Worm 24cxi no hot water and leak help

    After doing some more observing I've noted. The boiler fires for both CH and DHW when as it should. But if the CH is on Then I open a tap to demand DHW nothing happens and the CH continues as if there is no demand for DHW. If the boiler is in a state with CH off and I demand DHW then the...

    Glow-Worm 24cxi no hot water and leak help

    I promise you you have it the wrong way around. I'm not trying to come across as a know it all far from it but I can honestly say this particular boiler model shows temp when CH demand is on and pressure when DHW is demanded.

    Glow-Worm 24cxi no hot water and leak help

    It has always showed the system pressure on HW and temp on CH Unless you are mistaking it for a slightly different model. The 24cxi I have has been like this for the last 15 years lol

    Glow-Worm 24cxi no hot water and leak help

    This particular model of boiler doesnt show a tap symbol. It has a led that lights when demand is called for and it shows the pressure of the system. If the CH is on it shows temperature and when DHW is called for when the heating is on it switches and shows the pressure again. Of there is...

    Thank you for the quick reply. I'll screw that down to stop that then. Good to know it's not related. Any ideas what could be causing the DHW issue. I think from looking around the internet the most likely culprits are: Diverter valve Flow sensor Flow switch? P2P heat exchanger sludged...
