    Screed over marble

    Happy New Year everyone! Sorry if this has been asked before but I have searched tiling forum but could not find any topics on this. I laid marble tiles in kitchen years ago. They are still solid as the day I laid them but to be honest I tiled across three rooms at different floor levels &...

    Baxi Duo Tec 40 HE Combi - No Hot Water Switching

    Could be your diverter valve has stuck in central heating position when it was disturbed. I take it you have a thermostatic shower & not an electric? Could be a faulty flow sensor. You're going to ask me how to now check aren't you? Dohhhhh!.....

    Ferroli Optimal HE plus 18OV heat only boiler

    Like I said, I'm ex gas, being registered won't make any difference. Disconnected pipe from boiler to top of condensate trap, blocked with whitish sludge. Cleaned out & refitted, easy enough, working ok now. Thanks for making me go back & re- check.

    Ferroli Optimal HE plus 18OV heat only boiler

    Thanks Ian, disconnected the condensate earlier on to check if it was blocked & the pipes were clear. Did not check trap though, will check for blockages around that area. Cheers.

    Ferroli Optimal HE plus 18OV heat only boiler

    Well, I'm back again, boiler has been up & running fine since new PCB, until today that is. Boiler is now, I'd like to say kettling but I don't think its that. It's more like bubbling as though you have put a straw in a glass of water & started blowing into the glass. That's the only way I can...

    Is this correct the correct way to plumb a Saniflo Compact?

    BG330+ Boiler Replacement

    It's repairable but it will cost you. If that IS the problem. It can be flushed through to descale but it's a right pain to do. Dunno what they charge these days but it's a good half days work at least. I'd get a price on a descale but only once it has deffo been diagnosed as that being the...

    Ferroli Optimal HE plus 18OV heat only boiler

    Update: got second hand PCB for 40 quid. Fitted it, bit fiddly, got my m8 in who is registered gas fitter to do all the necessary analysis with fga, we are now nice & toasty & might go wild & take a hot shower. Cheers all. On a side note: can ex gas chappies get into combustion chamber if no...

    Replacement Radiator Size

    It should fit but might be a bit of a squeeze & push your pipes out of line a touch. Looking at your pic there you will probably have to upgrade the radiator valves/ tails to the more modern type or make sure you keep the existing tails from that radiator so your old valves fit the new radiator...

    Can I fit an expansion vessel anywhere on the circuit

    No reason why not, just fit it in the return side of the heating system.

    32mm MDPE - Bury fitting with testing?

    Yes, your supplier is only obliged to supply your property with 1bar of water pressure,it's normally better than this but until you have connected your mains you cannot check on what you have coming in. Taking pressure up to 3 bar on a test would be adequate in a domestic setting. Are you sure...

    Horizontal covered vs Vertical uncovered

    Hi, just ripped out a house full of 10mm pipe on a full heating system due to blockages in the pipework. If you can, use 15mm copper pipe. It depends on your room size really, if you fit a huge rad with too large an output you will have it turned right down most of the time. You can get a free...

    32mm MDPE - Bury fitting with testing?

    I definitely would not. Philmac fittings are just the job but you can cap one end then fill with water & test. Rothenberger do a pressure pump with a guage just for this job, sure you must be able to hire one? You fill the tray with water & hand pump it through the pipe until your pressure...

    Ferroli Optimal HE plus 18OV heat only boiler

    Thanks all for advice, let you know how I get on. Probably fit it then get engineer in with GFA. It's my own boiler & I'm an ex gas fitter no longer registered & I don't own one. Let you know how I get on.
