    Retaining wall top ideas

    Thanks John I like the pebbles idea. Or I did have a thought that I could use wood again but cover it in roofing felt. Not 100% sure that would stop the warping but it's an idea.

    Retaining wall top ideas

    Hi, We have a big step down from our neighbours fence. On our side there is a 3 ft wall of old concrete slabs with Feather edge in front to hide the slabs.

    Boiler cutting out when heating water.

    Sorry for the delay. The Boiler is an old ideal mexico 2 and the hot water cylinder is a weird green colour. The top rad when bled does produce a strong flow of clean water. I filled half a jug! Agile, why would this have changed, as they have worked in the past.

    Boiler cutting out when heating water.

    Hi, I have noticed that when the hot water is heating the boiler is cutting in and out quite often. I am guessing there is air in the hot water heating loop? It is a gravity fed system with 2 valves. The Heating is working fine. What can i do to rectify this? Cheers
