    Tap handle removal!

    I having to replace basin taps and a bath/shower mixer tap for a similar reason because the splash covers are circular - mole grips will not get a purchase. The replacements have a small hex/octa section for a wrench.

    Joining all 3 water pipes together (2 waste and 1 rain)

    Could replace rainwater downpipe with full sized soil pipe below level of the 2 waste branches as Screwfix do some rubber drain pipe adaptors for this. Not sure what discharge into gulley will be like with this set up. Do make sure gulley is connected to main soil/waste drainage sewer.

    Can you get an unlabeled WF100 cable? Have I been conned?!?

    I know a competing diy firm does an air spaced cable with copper braid/core with aluminium foil shielding that will be next to useless for the F connector terminations because it will collaspe/become severely chewed.This cable has been fortunately sold (in store) only with a black sheath.

    is it the software?

    If running latest OS I would find that at least 2Gb of memory should make the system stable. Depends if memory is also shared with graphics, if so an extra graphics card would help here as it would reduce the main processor/memory loading.
