    Paint Issues in Bathroom

    Yes, there's no peeling or cracking, just streaks and tide marks. I don't believe any primer was used. Would i need to sand it all first, or is it OK straight over the top?

    Vaillant Ecofit Pure working but red light

    Ah, that's OK then! We recently had the controls replaced with non-vaillant ones, so I guess that red light is now expected and irrelevant! Curious as to why it's taken a week to show, but oh well!

    Vaillant Ecofit Pure working but red light

    Noticed this morning that the green light on the front of the boiler has turned red, but I can't see any fault codes being displayed ( do I need to go into a menu? ). Heating and hot water seem to work. Any ideas what's going on?

    Iflo trv head replacement

    Brilliant, thanks. Assume they should just have a more modern head that should be a straight swap?

    Iflo trv head replacement

    Hi, Plastic part inside an iflo trv has snapped. I can't seem to find a matching head in the Internet. Can anyone recommend a replacement head so I don't have to change the whole valve? Thanks!

    CH target temp

    Moved into a new house. CH seems to work, in that all radiators get warm, but they don't get hot. Checked the boiler (Vaillant ecoFit pure) and the target temperature was set to 55. This seems low, what should it be?

    What would cause a concrete floor to be wet?

    How old is very old? If it was built before damp proofing was a thing then there's a chance it's ground water, in which case a concrete floor is not ideal.

    Fire extinguisher for electrics and hob

    When I spoke with the fire service they do not recommend extinguishers for domestic use. They would much rather you get out and phone 999 as that is much safer. On saying that, they do recommend fire blankets for kitchens

    I know the previous owner used to have a tumble dryer, so maybe they contributed. I keep an eye on it

    Damp identification help

    Thanks for all your help so far. There are no pipes within a meter or so of that area. The inside of the cupboard does not smell damp and I can't see anything untoward in the gap between the cupboard and the wall. The floor is solid. I think the water main does run under the floor somewhere...

    Damp identification help

    So here are photos of either side, and as you can see, there's no indication of damp. Can you clarify what exterior photos you need? I'm just a bit confused as that patch is not near any external wall. The stop cock is over by the washing machine.

    Damp identification help

    That wall that you can see is a partition separating two rooms of what used to be an old brick outhouse. The original outhouse was built in the 1700s, and was converted into living space in 2010. There obviously wasn't any damp proofing originally and unfortunately I don't have a record of what...

    Damp identification help

    Hi, New house, uncovering various things. Could anyone help with this damp? Not sure if the pattern indicates what is causing it. Also not sure if it's historic or recent as we've only been here a couple of weeks. The "damp" only appears to be on the end of the threshold, and not on either side...

    Bosch dishwasher water hammer mid cycle

    Hi, just moved into a house and have inherited a Bosch Serie 2 Silence Plus. It is indeed silent for most of the three hour cycle, until the point there's about 1 hour 40 left in the display. At that point there's a repeated pattern of what sounds like the machine filling followed by an...
