    Slightly confused about floor standing bath filler...

    Hi, I am on a gravity fed system, and this tap is suitable for low pressure (0.2 bar). I remain concerned about flow rate, especially now as it seems to be designed for a 15mm feed, but only if you use the legs. This is what I don't understand. Why wouldn't the long flexi be 3/4" at both ends?

    Slightly confused about floor standing bath filler...

    Hi all, I have purchased a cross water Kai floor standing bath filler. A flexi pipe runs through the legs with a 3/4" female at the top and a 1/2" female at the bottom. My question is, if you were to install without the legs, then you would have a 22mm feed to the tap, but if you install using...

    Paragon Plus problem since power cut.....

    Yes, I would acknowledge that the battery is flat, but really wondering if the system is usable. As I say I can set it and reset it, just don't have a DAY mode nor can I change the code back to my original. Movement sensors all work ok.

    Paragon Plus problem since power cut.....

    Hi, The battery has never been replaced. Master code 1234 works to set / reset, as does the default user code 5678. The only led lit on the keypad is the supply. No others regardless of set / reset status.

    Paragon Plus problem since power cut.....

    Hi all, I have a Pyronix Paragon Plus alarm which has worked well since it was installed about 17 years ago. Last night we suffered a power cut and when the power came back on the alarm sounded. Entering the normal code had no effect and as it was 3am I switched off the power to the control...

    Suprima 80 only works with cover open...

    Thanks for the comments so far. What I have noticed is that from cold, with both HW and heating on, the boiler will light and heat both up to required temp. However, once up to temp the boiler then only lights for a few seconds, and gradually over a few hours HW and rads all significantly cool...

    Suprima 80 only works with cover open...

    Thanks Kevplumb. I appreciate I will need to get someone in to look at it, but just to understand whats going on, am I right in thinking that the open ended red tube is monitoring air pressure inside the boiler cover, effectively checking for a fan leak?

    Suprima 80 only works with cover open...

    Hi all, I have been looking into why my rads and hot water are warm rather than hot and noticed that the boiler was only lit for a few seconds at most. However, when I opened the cover the boiler stayed lit until it reached temp. Presumably then this is something to do with air flow? The...

    Integrated appliance door guide? slider?......

    Hi all, I have inherited an integrated freezer but it is missing the plastic parts that connect the appliance door to the cupboard door. Struggling to find any anywhere, partly because I don't know what they called. Does anyone know what the correct name of these parts is, and more...

    Mixer tap error, is this fix ok?

    Hi all, Ok, hands up I have messed up installing a shower mixer tap. I have replaced a 'telephone' style bath/shower tap with separate taps and a wall mounted shower mixer and naively thought that teeing off the taps wouldn't be much different to how it was with the old mixer tap. So I now...

    Strange mcb trip scenario..

    Morning all, A colleague of mine has just asked me to consider a problem she is apparently experiencing. I will have a proper look later but for now will give the brief facts as they were given to me in case anyone can suggest the cause. My colleague found this morning that her fridge /...

    Can anyone recommend a Sliding Mitre Saw?

    I've got the Ryobi EMS-2026SCL which is around £190. Positive stops on the mitre angles. Laser guide pretty useless. Otherwise a good saw for the money.

    Bath / shower mixer flow probelm..

    Thanks Softus, The hose and head are perfectly clear. Interested to know that you can get a diverter valve kit, mind you I have no idea of the manufacturer. David.

    Bath / shower mixer flow probelm..

    Hi all, A friend of mine has a bath / mixer tap, the sort where the shower hose sits on a built in cradle and you switch between bath or shower by moving a lever. Problem is that the hot flow out of the shower head is barely more than a trickle and has apparently got worse over time which. I...

    Cupboard door out of sheet...

    Hi all, I want to cut an access door out of the middle of a sheet of 12mm mdf. What is the best way of achieving this? Jigsaw would obviously give a narrow cut but not sure I could keep the blade straight enough, would anyone suggest using a router with something like a 2mm cutter? Many...

    Simple worktop join...

    Hi all, I need to join two worktops with a simple straight joint using bolts routed into slots underneath. My question - is it usual practice to mate the two 'prefinished' ends or the two sawn ends? I'm guessing the prefinished ends would be a better fit but not sure if you end up with a...

    Tardy Plasterer.....

    Ok, so he's doing a good job and he hasn't asked for any money, great, couldn't be better. But, Slow Fade, he's 4 weeks in and still has a good way to go to finish - how long you would give him? The implication is that so long as he continues to do a good job then he has as long as he wants...

    Tardy Plasterer.....

    Without doubt my plasterer is doing a superb job in terms of flat, blemish free finishes. What he is less good at is turning up and getting on with the job. He came to me through recommendation from people who had small 1 or 2 day jobs where his plastering skills were on show but his poor...
