    The light doesn't switch on. There is no current coming out of the module. I take it the module is broken. Is it possible to buy modules ot replace when they fail rather than having to buy the entire switch unit? I am not interested in openning the module and attempting to repair it.

    Retro fitting drainage holes in retaining wall

    This is my first post so hello to everyone. :D The boys forgot to install drainage holes in the retaining wall they built along two sides of our garden. The wall is made from brieze block, a cavity, then concrete blocks made to look like reconstituted stone. There is rubble filled behind...
