    Stainless Handrail Levelling

    Hi all, I've test installed some stainless handrails, but the fall my builder put on the platform and bottom step means they're not quite level, as you may be able to make out: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AlmVEDCDwc6sjZlxGb-7bFMyOU9-Wg?e=duTUZD The saddles aren't adjustable. Does anyone have any idea...

    Need to put a shallow S-bend in existing pipes

    Hi guys, Hopefully you can point me in the right direction, as you've always done in the past. I had a very fancy radiator powder coated recently, and bought some new valves for it, however they're a little bit wider (when looked at from the front) than the ones they're replacing, so the pipes...

    Cold Rad, Hot Pipe

    Hi guys, I've searched and searched and I can't find an answer to my specific problem. We decorated a room for our little girl to move into, and the Wife wanted the radiator moving from one wall to another. It was initially a regular double panel radiator, which was mounted on a wall with the...

    New Radiator Leaking

    Evening all, Just installed a new radiator in the bairn's room, but it's leaking where the tap screws into the radiator. Just a slow drip, but a drip non the less. Here it is: https://www.dropbox.com/s/lzzg0k92gwgy46v/20160926_202530-picsay.jpg?dl=0 Is there an easier way to fix this than to...

    Under Steam Shower Flooring

    Hi All, I'm currently in the process of reinstalling my steam shower cabinet, after the original installer made a right Horlicks of it. See here and here for background. Here's where it's going to go. As you can see the original installer had it on those white tiles you can see along each...

    Shower Waste Debacle

    Hi all, Some of you may have seen my post in the Electrics forum for my steam shower reinstallation. What a palaver! Anyhoo, now we're on to the plumbing. Seems to be the same level of competence involved for this job as well, with the flexi pipe being siliconed into the boss strap. Needless to...

    Steam Shower Supply

    Hi all, We moved into a house with an Insignia INS0509 Steam Shower installed last July, and it was working fine for around a year, then it started to trip the leccy. We didn't use it for while, then tried it again and all was fine for a couple of days when it started tripping the leccy again...

    Shower Cabin tripping leccy

    Hi all, We have an Insignia GT0509W shower/steam cabin, which was installed before we bought the house. We've been using it fine for the last 8 months, then all of a sudden one night, when we weren't even using it, the whole power tripped. We narrowed it down to the shower cabin and have left...

    Low toilet water level when installed, fine when not

    So, we noticed the water level was really low in the downstairs toilet when we moved in to our new (old) house, but then the smells started and I have been forced to do something about it. It's so low that it starts to gurgle after it's settled post flush, as you can see...

    Loose Banister Wall Bracket

    Hi all, We've just put our flat on the market, and I want to sort out our loose banister wall bracket before people come to view it, as it's not a great first impression. Here's my problem: http://youtu.be/bXdKiEIbBe4 I realise I'm going to have to reseat it, requiring some removal and...

    Veritas 8 - Instant Arm?

    Hi all, Installed a Veritas 8 last month with some invaluable help from this forum, however I'm wondering if there's a way to instantly arm it when we are in the house and going to bed. Instead, we have to sit through 30 seconds of quite loud beeps late at night. Thanks in advance for any...

    Buying Advice Required for Very Simple Alarm Unit

    Hello all, Hope you all had a spiffing Christmas, and are looking forward to celebrating the new year. We have an old Omnicron alarm system, that only has a contact on the front and back door, no PIRs or any other fancy stuff. The control box hasn't worked for ages, so we haven't used it...

    Has my Saunier Duval 620F kicked the bucket?

    We have an SD620F, which for a while has been making a bang (a much louder than normal ignition) as the hot tap is turned on and something (not sure if it is the fan or pump that can be heard) seemed to be excessively noisy. Now, the boiler is not working at all. There is no hot water/central...
