    Hi, We have a fireplace hearth made up of natural stone tiles, upon which sits a log burner fire. A few years after fitting, the grout between the tiles is, basically, falling out. The tiles themselves are fine, with no sign of any movement or instability. I'd just like to fill the gaps to...

    Problem with Grohe dual flush valve 42314

    Hi, I have a concealed cistern with a Grohe dual flush 42314 (what I'll call the unit in the description below!). I had to remove the unit to refit the small air tube that attached to the flush button (it came off and wouldn't flush) and ever since I've been unable to stop the steady trickle...
