    Shower Valve replacement

    I found this post //www.diynot.com/diy/threads/can-you-help-identify-my-shower.337936/ which helped identify the shower valve in my shower as RV1102RC, but it also has me wondering whether the valve is the issue. The shower is fed mains pressure hot and cold water but runs very hot, the...

    Water Hammer?

    I used the shower this morning and noticed a hell of a din coming from the airing cupboard. When I looked the pipes coming from the loft were banging... I assume this is water hammer?. I turned on the cold tap in the bathroom for a few seconds and it stopped it. Nothing has changed in the...

    Kitchen Refurb

    My wife has decided that she wants to replace the worktops in the kitchen with granite which is thinner than the existing worktops. She wants the existing tiles off, the walls skimmed (between the existing units and the new granite) so they can be painted rather than tiled. Is this something...

    Mains Cold, Tank Hot To Bath Mixer Shower

    I've installled a bath mixer tap with one of those shower attachments where you pull up a knob to switch to the shower. There is about 5 metres head on the hot and the cold is mains fed. When I tested this with hot only it was acceptible, but when I turn on the higher pressure cold the shower...

    Electric Heaters

    It'a not got economy 7, I've had it in the past elsewhere and the lack of control over the output was a right pain... especially when it ran out at night

    Is all waste pipe solvent weld?

I was going to use pushfit to plumb in the bath waste but where it's been nicked it's going to be a lot easier to cut it fully through and use a slimmer solvent weld fitting to extend the pipe and then use the pushfit for the...

    Sorry, bit more info required. First: no gas to the property, so electric heating to house and electric towel rail in bathroom Second: pretty much impossible to get 10mm cable to bathroom (or any other suitable location) and would also mean a replacement fuseboard as there are no spares on...
