    Worcester Bosch 40CDI Regular Boiler Fault Please Help!

    oh dear, what a sad response. What I posted was to "back up" one possible solution and to confirm it fixed the issue for me Responses, negative ones like yours, trying to be clever attacking people for 'not bothering to read stuff' are the reason I and many others I've spoken to have left...

    Until they introduce a proper British kw, I'm going to stick with BTU Best TUs in the world! Well, perhaps once. ;)

    BTU Output for Kitchen Radiator?

    In fairness I think Possom was looking for a rough figure. Though, if there are lots of windows, or an usual single skin brick wall, it's gonna make somewhat of an impact When I cook chicken I just cook it till it no longer flaps around in the oven, and then another hour....

    dry pressure testing, tiny overnight leak (I think...)

    Seriously, like "a ball made of explosive"? And I'm testing to 10psi - who mentioned 150psi or 10 bar?

    dry pressure testing, tiny overnight leak (I think...)

    I've been alone doing much more dangerous stuff than that. Still here, which means I have to finish house build. Mrs says I can die then, and ONLY then. In all seriousness, I'm doing this as safely as I can. nothing is ever perfectly safe, but precautions limit the danger and I'm limiting...

    dry pressure testing, tiny overnight leak (I think...)

    yep, I've read about the risks before I began and it's only me allowed in the area. I'm a DIYer. indeed, I thought dry pressure testing not allowed on building sites in the UK for the dangers you rightly mention? but I don't work on building sites so perhaps it is allowed if safety can be...

    dry pressure testing, tiny overnight leak (I think...)

    I decided to use a Rothenberger dry pressure tester to test as I went with my replacement installation of central heating (moving cylinder, valves, pump, filter, etc...) and everything has worked great so far. Only fault found previously was the nuts on the pump valve not nipped up enough. It's...

    good quality outdoor wall light!

    Not LightwaveRF (I don't think) but if you've not already checked out the "SuperHouseTV" channel on YouTube I recommend it. Mr Oxer is must see TV for home automation in my view. I like that he reminds us that home "automation" isn't being able to remotely switch on a light. It's more like...

    good quality outdoor wall light!

    I agree. But lights that are sold as 'stainless steel' do rust, at least the cheap (say £20) for each light ones. Hence my question.

    JG Speedfit pipe question.

    If you are going to use JG or any other plastic, don't make the mistake of thinking 15mm plastic is equivalent to 15mm copper in terms of flow. Same for 22mm. I read years ago how much "the restriction caused by the small diameter inserts was offset by the reduced friction of plastic", but my...

    Hive wiring advice please

    And idea if evohome is planned to be expanded to, say, smoke alarms etc like Nest ? Or probably not because Honeywell just heating? Be a shame not to build on this platform.
