    Copper Push Fit

    I used one of the above today for the first time as space was very tight. The fitting was a straight connector on copper pipe. I'm worried that there seems quite a bit of play in the joint, similar to an unsoldered end feed. Is this normal? The pipes are square and fully inserted as per...

    Screws for WBP Subfloor Under Tiles

    Which screws should I use for the above? I have bought these http://www.screwfix.com/p/goldscrew-countersunk-screws-3-5-x-25mm-pack-of-200/17189, but I'm worried they might rust. Do I need to use stainless steel? Edit: The link doesn't seem to work. They are Screwfix Goldscrew and it...

    Volkswagen LT Noise

    In the last few weeks I've noticed a buzzing/vibration noise coming from the passenger side foot well.

    Volkswagen LT Won't Start

    Volkswagen LT Drive Belt Wear UPDATE

    While servicing my van the other day I noticed the drive belt had a small crack running along the length of the belt. To get a better look I removed the belt and found that one of the six ribs was worn away (same position as the crack). I checked the pulleys and found a little play in the...

    Kitchen Sink

    Hello. I got my kitchen sink out of a skip on a new development; It had been thrown away as most of the fixing lugs were broken off. After 10+ years and while changing a tap washer it has come loose. I'm wondering what to use to stick it back. A friendly plumber recommended Fix All...
