    Extending cables

    Fitted a Velux window over the weekend and there are a couple of cables running directly underneath. Cant be moved out of the way, so need to extend them. I'm fine with extending the electric cable (using a 30A junction box), but what about the earth cable - assume this cant be extended...

    Plumbing vent leaking through roof

    I have a plumbing vent pipe going up and through the roof in the loft. I've noticed its been leaking through the roof and dripping down into the loft. I'm assuming it has/had a rubber boot type thing on the outside that prevented this and has stopped working. https://imgur.com/72JHCYg From...

    Honeywell R6660D to Hive Receiver - not firing up boiler

    OK, got this sorted now. Suspect the cover of the hive wasnt "seated" correctly on the backing plate - causing one of the pins not to connect properly (almost certainly pin 3). Anyway, thanks for the help on this one all!

    Honeywell R6660D to Hive Receiver - not firing up boiler

    Just decommissioned my old Honeywell system with a R6660D receiver that was connected up to the boiler (working perfectly). Wired it my new Hive receiver, hooked it all up to the thermostat and hub but it's not firing up the central heating on the boiler. The green light is coming on on the...

    Struggling to remove window beading

    Need to replace a number of "blown" double glazed sealed units. Have managed to remove 3 in the conservatory with no problem by using a putty knife to remove the beadings. One in the kitchen appears a slightly different design and I cant remove the beading - obviously dont want to damage the...
