    mixing multi finish plaster

    It's another two years older now and British Gypsum has probably been taken over by a foreign company, plus the original posters house is now a playing field. Mick.

    Ring Main Circuit Route in Floor Insulation

    Hi JD. The mention of 6mm was enough to abort the idea, of course I could employ a mechanical means of forced air ventilation through the flexi and stick with 2.5mm :lol: I acknowledge the insight of 2.5mm to 6mm. Cheers Mick.

    Ring Main Circuit Route in Floor Insulation

    Hello BAS. The flexi conduit would be 25mm and I suspect 2.5mm cable, it would be down to the 'Sparks' when the job is advanced to that stage later in the year. If there is an issue with routing through the Jablite in flexi I would abandon the idea, on the face of it, it seems to make...

    Ring Main Circuit Route in Floor Insulation

    A new build property with 100mm thick Jablite installed in the floor, this will be followed by a further 75mm of Jablite backed flooring. Is there any reason why at the floor installation stage ie in the 100mm Jablite, that a flexible gaine/conduit could be channelled for the ring main cable...

    multi fuel stove

    A bit more kit could well be an under statement, is the oil boiler a gravity fed system ? as I doubt if its a closed loop you will find a suitable multi fuel stove, generally they are all gravity fed and you would need a heat sink rad as solid fuel stoves are not as controllable as gas and oil...

    Steel Oil Tanks

    Having come across a couple of oil tanks, one of which we had to cut up to remove, I was amazed at the rusted internal sides of the tank, also a near neighbour had problems with a filter blockage on his system, particles of rust. Tilted the tank away from the outlet to overcome it. My vote...

    no oil at boiler

    Until someone more conversant with oil related boilers comes along, is there any sediment/filter bowls in the system ? a small globule of water in a pipe run is your worst enemy in these current conditions. Cheers Mick.

I have a 'Seagate' unit that I use for my PC and laptop backups and considered one of the newer pocket HD's. My intention is to do away with the two computers and get a...

    Plastic pipe blown off shower - what's gone wrong?!

    Sure I've seen some were that, that type of 'O' ring insert should not be used on a compression olive fitting, a plain plastic or metal insert should be used ? I'll stand corrected. Mick.
