    22mm pipe to 3/4 compression fitting

    Thanks for all the help, I was suspicious so I bought some imperial olives today in anticipation. I am told they used to be coloured with a green ring for id purpose, hence the name.

    22mm pipe to 3/4 compression fitting

    Many thanks. Looks like a compression coupler then with a 3/4 olive. Toolstation also sell end feed couplers but I don't want a bag of 25 which is what they seem to sell.

    22mm pipe to 3/4 compression fitting

    Hi I need to connect a 22mm pipe into a 3/4 compression 'T'. I haven't disconnected it yet but I am suspicious that the 22mm pipe won't go through the end nut on the compression fitting. Can I use the end nut off a 22mm compression fitting a. Will a 22mm pipe go into the 3/4 fitting and...

    Cast iron panel radiator output

    I need to replace my central heating system and currently, the radiators are flat panel cast iron radiators, 60 cm high, some three section (120cm), some four section (160cm). I need to decide whether to keep these or replace with steel ones but I need to know what the heat output of the...

    Connecting bathroom heated towel rail

    The FCU will be spurred from the ring which is RCD protected - I have tested it by means of its button but I guess the guy who connects up will be able to do so if necessary. I'm surprised the flex going through the wall withouth a plate is permitted , not for any particular reason, it just...

    Connecting bathroom heated towel rail

    I have an electric towel rail in the bathroom (zone 2) but it needs connecting. There is an FCU outside the bathroom ready, directly behind where the towel rail is situated but the flex from the rail needs to run to the FCU. Is it permissable to run flex just through the wall or is a flex...

    Flat roof dormer

    The cost is for just the new dormer. Does that seem reasonable? I don't think the architect realised the exising ones were zinc. He just specified lead as that is presumably the best.

    Flat roof dormer

    I am having a dormer window installed and this has a flat roof. The plans specify code 5 lead but I am considering zinc as I have two existing dormers which are covered with zinc and seem perfectly fine. I have checked with the local building control and they are happy with that. The flat...

    Mondeo 2004 TDCI Car wont start,engine mgt light Glow plugs

    Look around the net, masses of info on this fault as it is so common. Just been having a load of grief with mine, similar problem but also quite a lot of causes. Try these sites. http://www.ilexa.co.uk/forum/index.php?board=20.0...

    ford focus cooling fan

    Has it always done it? Could be wiring fault. It is probably fed via a relay so find the appropriate one and pull it out to see if it stops the fan.

    Bathroom extractor fan - is fuse necessary?

    You are quite right - the electronics industry fuses everything individually with an appropriate fuse. It's all part of the backyard clearing exercise for when the lawsuits come along.

    Bathroom extractor fan - is fuse necessary?

    Thanks for the replies. Looks like I will have to put in the extra FCU for the sake of a 2A reduction, with more cable junctions comes possible future weaknesses.

    Bathroom extractor fan - is fuse necessary?

    I am having a new bathroom installed and an extractor fan is required. The supply to the bathroom is on the upstairs lighting circuit from an RCD protected 5A MCB in the consumer unit and the fan will be fed from this circuit. There is a 3 pole fan isolator switch outside the bathroom but the...

    Smoke detectors - notifiable work?

    I'm now more confused than ever - as in so many of these threads, even you guys disagree about the interpretation of the regs so what chance do us plebs stand? Are they deliberately written in an ambiguous way? If the argument is whether fixed wiring can be added or not, I struggle to see...

    Smoke detectors - notifiable work?

    I need to install two linked mains powered smoke detectors. There are no spare ways in the consumer unit so they will have to be fed from a lighting circuit. The question is - is this notifiable work because it is not a new circuit back to the CU but neither is it an additional lighting point...

    Painting a previously papered ceiling

    I have had a problem with the paper on the ceiling of a bedroom which after 3 or 4 years has decided to fall off. As fast as I re-stick it, another bit falls down. It doesn't seem to be damp so the only thing I can think of is this - it is actually wallpaper (my daughter chose it, it does...
