    Adding outdoor timer socket

    Hi there, earlier in the summer, I had a double weatherproof socket professionally installed to my house. This is tapped off of a double socket inside of the house and is for mowers/strimmer. I have got some mains operated garden lights and can see that the housing for my double socket is...

    Running electrical cable under patio slabs

    Good evening, I have booked a brick worker to come and extend my patio. Whilst he is doing this work, I suddenly thought, this would be a good time to get him to take up some of my existing slabs and put something underneath to help run wires through, whilst he has the cement mixer there. At...

    A few more areas of concern. What do you think... These are the breeze blocks in the loft. Second picture is not so bad, but should there be so many gaps and cracks in the first image?

    New Build Snagging, Non-working telephones

    It would seem odd to have to change this as it was working fine. There is a setting within the menu. It is set to pulse/earth, tried the other two: Tone/TimedBr Tone/Earth All they do is make an awful scratching and crackling noise as though no microfilter is attached. It then also cuts out the...

    Hope you get it sorted. Have tried to do mine myself with the help of some of the very helpful chaps above, but it seems, I am still getting issues with mine... Phone has been working perfectly after my recent fix, however, all of a sudden, although I get a dial tone, if I dial in a number, my...

    Not able to get alternative outside bulb to work

    Thanks for your posts guys. In my last house, it had just standard light bulbs - the ones you can buy these days for 50p in the shops.\ The main reason I want to use LED is because the bulbs I have connect to a hub and so automatically come on and off at certain times. All I need to do is cover...

    Not able to get alternative outside bulb to work

    Hi there, My house comes with the below light fitting and energy saver bulb. I have been trying to get my LED bulb to work in the light housing. I bought an adaptor that will allow a screw bulb to connect, but whenever I connect it, it is just dead. Is there a difference in voltage or something...

    Hell no! I am not that much of a rookie! Yeah, looks to be 5e, but can't actually tell as cable is quite short in the back box so I can't make out any writing. Glad they have done something at least! I managed to bend it back, but they are all like this other than the master socket. They are...

    New Build Snagging

    Have just emailed them again. Will wait until end of week, and if things don't start moving in the right direction, I will do as you have advised and say I will get in and pay for a builder, and forward them on the cost. If cost is not met, I will hold back rental monies for the unsold equity...

    New Build Snagging, Non-working telephones

    Thank you. That was really helpful. Just given it a go and managed to get some lines working. Almost all of the faceplate had the backs hanging out as below so I have had to unscrew and re push them on. I have the one I wanted working, but some are still not working, I will leave that for them...

    Don’t get me started on that! You have to seek permission. I was told before completing you can use sky/do it yourself etc but you have to get permission first. Emailed the corrext department plus several others (as time went on) each week on a Monday for three weeks regarding this and putting...

    New Build Snagging

    Thanks everyone. The HA have been pretty unhelpful so far. They told me I needed to call in. I have called in twice and been told that apparently, their computers are not working and they will call me back. Nothing. I will give it until mid-week, as this gives me more time to collate all of the...

    New Build Snagging, Non-working telephones

    Thanks everyone, another item for the list. This has become a bit of a headache. I would attempt to join those wires myself, but if I bugger it up, I will get the blame and they will prob say they don't support it now as I have tampered.

    New Build Snagging, Non-working telephones

    Hi there, I made a post elsewhere on this forum and it does seem I have quite a lot of snagging issues. My main telephone socket, in the under-stairs cupboard works well, but all of the internal ones around the house are dead. If I get a phone call, I have to go and sit in the cupboard under...
