    Drain pipe water butt identification

    replace the hosepipe with something bigger, Std hosepipe is 15mm outside diameter, 10/11mm inside, even that short length will present significant resistance to water flow as its not presurised-resulting in long fill periods, ive got 5 water butts feeding two IBC's all connected, had to change...

    Cost of a tree inspection. Suffolk.

    If the hole is now 3" deep then the rot has allready started, Birch is structually a softwood and your probably looking at an expanding 4"-12" area of decayed non structural wood under the 3" hole, nothing you do now will strengthen or repair it, sadly from your reported height of the hole a...

    HOZELOCK connector problem

    Ive got several fittings from different makes, most work together but not all, yes the brass style fittings do seem to work better/longer, I found the biggest problem being the 'O' ring on the male ends degrading, some are silicon, some are more plastic based & flatten easily, resulting in a 'no...

    Hi folks, I've currently got an Accenta 8 G3 with 1 remote LED keypad & are upgrading it to a G4 with 3 remote LCD/LED keypads. I managed to get a couple S/H online but one of them seems to be programmable on its own, it had some text already & I've managed to clear that but instructions for...

    Static Caravan Supply

    Well, thanks everybody for your information and suggestions, it looks like I'll have to reduce the heater wattage (which I'd bought specially) & fit a 10A breaker. Iv'e also got some LED & low wattage bulbs to install/change over, so hopefully that will help too. Thanks again folks for the...
