    New Window Sills in Conservatory

    I am replacing the old PVC sills in the conservatory with new mdf ones. Basically two L shapes. Just in case the angle isn't a straight forward 90 degree job, can anyone guide me in the best way to join them in the corners regarding marking / cutting etc? I was thinking of cutting one piece of...

    Sealing a chrome shower pipe....

    where it exits the wall? In my bathroom I have a shower cubicle where there is a "false wall" (can't think of the correct words!), where the water pipe runs up behind then to the shower unit from behind. I'm about to do a refurb on the bathroom and was thinking of having the water feed exit...

    Central Heating - HW works, heating doesn't?

    I've got the ACL Lifestyle 679H340-3OLO which I believe is too old to simply replace the actuator and needs a complete valve replacement. I'm going to try a new synchron motor and see if that works, if not I'll leave it locked manually until warmer weather arrives. My valve is pretty low down...

    Central Heating - HW works, heating doesn't?

    I've just read that if you push the lever to the right and push it in (which I have) it locks in the open position, it should automatically release when the valve is powered. Mine doesn't release so what does that mean, could it be the actuator? Anything's got to be better than replacing the...

    Central Heating - HW works, heating doesn't?

    I've pushed the lever on the side of the mpv and I now have heat going the hw and the heating together so it can stay like that until the warmer weather then I'll get a new mpv fitted.

    Central Heating - HW works, heating doesn't?

    I changed over the syncro motor on the mid position valve to one I knew worked and it made no difference. I suspect it may be the printed circuit board on the mpv. If i'm wrong can someone tell me what it could be or where I should be looking, if I may be correct can you confirm that so I...

    The tree height has been clipped at 6' max height but don't know if this makes any difference to root growth.

    Lleylandi Roots

    I have a line of these trees grown as a hedge between my driveway and neighbours. I am thinking of cutting the trees down to ground level and replacing with a brick wall. My neighbour and I both have Patterned Concrete Drives so we don't want to disturb these removing the roots. The footings...

    Toilet leaking Internally

    Thanks for that, it's a WDI flush valve. I managed to take the unit off by twisting it like you said. The seal looks perfect and the seat was clean, no grit or anything. Now the valve is out the way I can see into the pan and the water is trickling into there. So it looks like I have a...

    Toilet leaking Internally

    I don't think it is the internal overflow because I shut the water supply to the toilet off last night and when I looked in the cistern this morning all the water had gone.

    Toilet leaking Internally

    I fitted a new toilet yesterday with a dual flush valve. There are no leaks externally but the water in the cistern is slowly leaking into the pan, resulting in the valve re-filling the cistern every so often. How do I stop this? It's annoying hearing the trickle of water. I didn't use any...
