    1/2" and 15mm question

    I am fitting a water heater. The expansion valve has 1/2" female input and output. I am going into 15mm copper. Do I need to source 1/2" male to 15mm compression fittings or can I just ditch the nut and olive from a 15mm compression coupler and it with some Jet Blue? Thanks.

    Honeywell Thermostat Replacement

    Thanks for this ..... but 1. I wasn't literally serious about facebook ... if I'm honest I don't really know what facebook is ... and ... 2. The benefits you point out, "knowing outside temp", "learning how I use the heating" etc are exactly what I would like to avoid. I really don't get on...

    Building a Windowsill

    Yes. Dot and dab, insulated board and skim change all that. By about 100mm. Back to the actual question?

    Building a Windowsill

    I am attempting to make a windowsill for a bedroom. In order for the sill to look right it needs to emerge from underneath the existing window. We currently have the plaster off and are going to replace it with insulated board and skim. The window is sited in an original Victorian stone...

    Ladder Problem

    For sure. Men can actually fly perfectly well. It's landing that's the problem. Both walls are solid and flat. My main worry is that the ladder at 26' plus off the ground, with a foot spacing of 4' is going to come off the wall quite easily, especially when I start drilling through a solid...

    Ladder Problem

I need to install some network cable on the outside of my house. I need to bring the cable down from the top floor, (entry point is 26...

    Insulated board and skirtings

    Good advice, thanks. Nope. Pine. Don't worry too much though, I've done several other rooms with it and it looks great! (y)(y) Thanks.

    Insulated board and skirtings

    The skirtings are going to be wood. They are not being painted, they are being waxed and polished throughout the house. Mdf obviously won't work for that.

    Insulated board and skirtings

    Hi I am prepping some rooms for plastering. In the past I have fixed a 20mm timber around at floor level to fasten the skirting boards to after the plasterers have finished. The plasterer then plasterboards down to the timber and skims up to level with it. Simples. This time, for some walls...

    Any experience with a Wagner airless sprayer?

    I've just bought a Wagner 250r airless sprayer second hand on eBay. (In the next few weeks I'm planning to mist coat and then emulsion an entire floor of my house). I am nor ready to paint anything yet, but I did want to test the thing in case it didn't work too well. I set it up and...

    Ivy & Bramble Problem

    .... So in the end what I did was: I had the tree surgeon back to stump grind and at the same time sort the brambles and ivy. We had to take down part of the fence on the other side of our garden and, thanks to a neighbour, bring a digger across his and my garden and in to the new piece of...

    Ivy & Bramble Problem

    I recently acquired a substantial piece of next door's garden. I bought it because they had let it overgrow massively and it was beginning to cause a problem for us. I asked them either to clear it or to manage it or in the alternative I would take it off their hands and manage it myself. I had...
