    Cracked grub screw in toilet turn knob door handle

    I have a couple of identical handles in other toilets in the house and the grub screws turn ok (not cracked). Short of sawing it off I don’t know how to get the handle off. The reason I need to remove it is the screws are loose and also it needs oiling as the handle is stiff

    Cracked grub screw in toilet turn knob door handle

    Hi, Maybe a basic question but any idea how to remove this cracked grub screw? I can’t find a way of getting it out. This is preventing me from removing the door handle. I’ve tried a few Allan/hex keys and a smaller key whilst packing in round it. Nothing has worked. Many thanks

    Removing 1000l expansion vessel

    Yeah sadly I think this is the case here. I’m reluctant to damage the plaster work and potentially crack the tiles as it weighs 187kg/30 stone Just unsure whether it’s a mad idea to cut it in situ or not

    Removing 1000l expansion vessel

    Hi, We have a domestic 1000L expansion vessel that has failed and needs removing. It has been drained of all water and has been isolated from the mains water. The door frame is too narrow to remove the vessel unless we take off the architrave and frame. Would an angle grinder be possible to...

    Replace slave door euro cylinder

    Hi I’ve replaced Euro Cylinders before, but in my new house the French doors have a central pillar attached to the slave door that isn’t screwed in on the side.

    Domestic Property 1000 Litre Cold Water Pressure Tank

    Thanks Yes there is a bathroom on the 2nd floor so I’m assuming it’s to ensure pressure is sufficient for that and the extended distance etc. I’m really looking for a service and to see if the counter flange can be replaced. I’m concerned it looks like it could go. thanks

    Domestic Property 1000 Litre Cold Water Pressure Tank

    Hi We've moved into a property that has a 1000 Litre vertical cold water pressure tank. To me this seems like over kill. It is a 6 bedroom property but we are quite conservative with usage and only have 2 small children at the moment. I'm looking for a few things. - How often should...
