    Remove damixa bath wall mounted tap

    100% correct RandomGrinch! A more forceful anticlockwise turn of the spout started the movement and it does indeed screw in. At least I have something to work with now. Cheers

    Remove damixa bath wall mounted tap

    Hi, Thanks, problem is still very much unsolved. I too expected to see some small screw underneath the spout but there is nothing. Once I have fixed the unrelated issue with the stopcock I will have to try a less cautious twist of the spout. ;)

    I have a wall mounted bath tap where the cover is coming away from the tiles - I am trying to remove it to see if there is any water damage underneath and to then fix back properly.

    onyx black Rockdoor not black?!?

    The installer came out with his colour swatch and it was the same colour as our door - brown. So that is how they come. We chose the door from Rock's iPad app and then Rock gave us the name of their recommended installer who we went with. Unfortunately they didn't have any black doors on...

    onyx black Rockdoor not black?!?

    Agree with crank and Gazman - colours have shades. My question was really have I got a one off blip in their production or are their black doors not the colour in their brochure and actually brown? Edit: the Black square is taken from the Rockdoor brochure

    Dry pressed ceramic Niro Granite flaky?!?

    Having removed some from their boxes they are marked with pencil and chalk and look to be someone else's returns / overs. Whole lot going back - doesn't seem to be a generic problem.

    TRV boolean on / off or gradual shutdown

    I have very little experience of radiator TRVs but am hoping to roll them out in my house - looking at the danfoss ras-d2 (mainly 'cos it pretty and has a high maximum setting) Question - do they gradually shut down as they approach desired temperature or is it more of an on / off scenario...
