    Conduit diameter for socket in brick wall

    This would be one double socket, and not a single socket.

    Conduit diameter for socket in brick wall

    It would just be one standard double socket, so just the one cable.

    Conduit diameter for socket in brick wall

    If a 25mm metal pattress, with standard 20mm knockouts, is set into a brick wall, to allow the installation of a standard domestic electrical socket, does the conduit need to be 20mm round conduit? That is, conduit running from floor inside wall up to socket. Was wondering if conduit of a...

    Additional cost of uPVC frames with external non-white colour

    As a non-glazier I would presume that standard white uPVC frames have the cheapest cost, whereas the same frames in another colour would be more expensive. If only the outside section of the uPVC frames have a colour and the inside section of the frames remain white (if this is possible), is...

    Connection for vented tumble dryer into air vent

    Madrab asked if the floor was or is suspended and I simply answered his question. There would be no build-up of lint against an air brick with the air brick removed and the product linked-to below used...

    Connection for vented tumble dryer into air vent

    I haven't said anyone has given incorrect advice.

    Connection for vented tumble dryer into air vent

    I had thought this was the intended original purpose, as originally there was no fan. So any steam would only be able to escape via the vents or by opening the kitchen window. Originally there was a suspended timber floor. However, the entire floor (original section + extension) was created...

    Connection for vented tumble dryer into air vent

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/272119421017?hash=item3f5b94d859:g:uZ8AAOSwzhVWq-Ud What about a kit such as above which has a brick-shaped centre? There is another air brick located close-by. The two vents were originally there as the cooker had originally been there when the house was built, but...

    Connection for vented tumble dryer into air vent

    I wonder if that kit could be used but without using the external vent, but rather attach the tubing to the inside of the air brick using expanding foam? Would mean the original 1940s air brick could remain.

    Connection for vented tumble dryer into air vent

    Thanks oldbuffer. There's another air brick located close-by so should be okay using this. The two vents were originally there as the cooker had originally been there, but as the kitchen was extended, the cooker is several metres away from these vents now. Is the above done to prevent any...

    Connection for vented tumble dryer into air vent

    The picture below shows an air vent in a kitchen with the internal plastic grill removed. It's just possible to see the external clay vent brick through the hole. The hole measures approx 17 cm x 12 cm. If I wanted to connect the venting tube from a vented tumble dryer into this, what sort of...

    1-way 2-way switch question

    If a switch is a 2-way switch can this normally be used in a location where only a 1-way is required? (I presume the other way around is not possible.) If a switch is just to switch on/off a room light (not a dimmer) and there is no other light and/or switch required, then presumably this is a...

    Laths v Plasterboard - using professional plasterer

    Is that using regular plaster (or lime)? If regular plaster, what would the wait time be between coats for a wall (not a repair area)? Thanks.

    Laths v Plasterboard - using professional plasterer

    Originally I had assumed regular plaster could be placed onto laths by a regular plasterer, and if this was the case, it would mean there wouldn't be the extra time/expense of removing laths and placing new plasterboard in place. I now realise this wouldn't be the case.

    Oak pattress behind electrical switch

    This is the sort of thing I'm thinking of.

    Laths v Plasterboard - using professional plasterer

    So if regular plaster cannot go directly onto laths, and needs to be a lime plaster - so this needs to be a specialist plasterer only? Regular plasterers can't use lime plaster directly onto laths? (In case relevant, the house is not listed).

    Laths v Plasterboard - using professional plasterer

    Okay - so regular plaster may not be suitable to plaster over laths; I hadn't thought of that possibility. If any plasterers can confirm? Thanks.
