    Socket in back of wardrobe

    I'm fitting some pax wardrobes and will be fixing them onto the wall. I've a socket behind which im wanting to put into the wardrobe. I'd planned on removing the faceplate from the socket, cutting out the wardrobe and using longer screws to internally mount the socket face plate to the backbox...

    Water coming up between grouting - bathroom floor tiles

    Annoyingly when the cabinet was fitted the waste pipe and inlet was fed through holes instead of a slot in the cabinet front. When I changed the cistern it meant getting it as tight as possible blindly, which clearly wasn't that tight. This time I had to either remove the waste, or cut the...

    Water coming up between grouting - bathroom floor tiles

    I had a better look behind the toilet yesterday as it's a concealed cistern and it looks like waters originating there. It is pooling in front of the toilet too. I'll remove the cabinet and get a better look. I imagine it's the water feed pipe not sealing into the toilet bowl. I hope anyway...

    Water coming up between grouting - bathroom floor tiles

    I appreciate it. I know the question is vague as it could be from anywhere, just wanted some hints. Seems to be no common for duration of appliance use to water coming up through tiles

    Water coming up between grouting - bathroom floor tiles

    Good spot. These are radiator pipes and I'm losing no bar pressure though?

    Water coming up between grouting - bathroom floor tiles

    Which screws? The drip was wiped and nothing returned on this. I imagine it's just run through from the tiling above and gathered. This is a recent issue.

    Water coming up between grouting - bathroom floor tiles

    Good shout. Toilet had been silicone to the tiles which was a clever decision. I couldn't see any water leaking before but I didn't put my phone down. Waste pipes are definitely dry. Some photos from under the floor. The drips were wiped and didn't return so weren't from the pipe joints.

    Water coming up between grouting - bathroom floor tiles

    WC cistern isn't leaking, i replaced this recently as it had been overflowing. Shower pipes are tiled over, this is my worry. It's a low walk in shower tray. The water appears to pool only in the middle of the bathroom but i presume running to the lowest point.

    Water coming up between grouting - bathroom floor tiles

    1st floor, timber. Presume they've put a sheet material over the floorboards but who knows in this house. I'm getting no damp in the roof of the kitchen which is directly below although it did leak through the coving a while back before I resealed the shower.

    Water coming up between grouting - bathroom floor tiles

    Recently noticed when standing on a floor tile in the bathroom that there is water coming up from the grouting. I have resealed the shower unit and ensure a towel is down to catch excess but this water has not dried up. I've checked under the floor from the adjacent room and cannot see any...

    Stuck (blanking plug) on new radiator (Ed.)

    I hammered a screwdriver in, and use a spanner on that managed to unscrew it. Threads seem fine. Vice grips were on tight but the plastic just crumbled underneath. Unfortunately there wasn't much to grip onto! All sorted now, appreciate the help. I'm used to this on cars, not new radiators

    Stuck (blanking plug) on new radiator (Ed.)

    I imagine I won't do any damage to the threads? I've tried tightening and got it moving but no luck anticlockwise. Socket slips now though

    Stuck (blanking plug) on new radiator (Ed.)

    I'll hammer a screwdriver through it tomorrow and see if it'll budge. All other 3 came out fine.

    Stuck (blanking plug) on new radiator (Ed.)

    Well mole grips made it worse. Surely they aren't meant to be this tight?

    Stuck (blanking plug) on new radiator (Ed.)

    So I bought a new flomasta radiator and all other 3 caps came out fine. The last one started turning and then just stopped. I've tried smashing a screwdriver in and turning it but the inner has just broken away. Tried with a socket over a spanner and this has just rounded it further. Any...

    Holes in plasterboard above boiler

    Hi all. Taking floorboards up in the bedroom above the kitchen I noticed these holes in the plasterboard which sits above the boiler. I presume this is purely for ventilation for the boiler? Any issues with this? Noise transmits very easily from downstairs presumably this won't be helping...

    Stripping paint on Victorian woodwork

    Use a Stanley knife to cut out all the old caulk and then replace with new. If you can, see if you can hammer that corner piece in level then stick another nail in it. Use some polyfiller and sand back/paint.

    No neutral between light fittings

    I've wired them up as they were and the lights work absolutely fine, can't stand it when they're twisted.

    I only got a picture of this. You can see the 2 core live and ground on the RHS that's attached to the switch
