    Thoughts of Geo-fix

    A merchant reccommended that I as it was my first time to lay a garden path (laying sandstone), I should consider geo-fix for the pointing (apparently this takes minutes rather than hours to lay). Does anyone have a feel for the downside of using geo-fix? Does it last? Does it weather well...

    Unexplained water on bathroom floor

    This morning there was a puddle of water near the sink, and splattering in the area around the sink. There was no sign of leakage from the roof, the taps where off, but there was a few drips coming from the under the counter top. On drying the floor, no more water has appeared, and on running...

    Tile line too high over the flat roof

    Thanks for the two positive responses and good spot on the large gauge on the narrow verge. I didn't notice it, and now I can't stop noticing it.

    Tile line too high over the flat roof

    Guys, We're almost complete on replacing the tiles on our roof but I'm a little concerned about the work done. In the areas where the pitch roof meets the flat roof, the tile line ends at least 15 cm above the flat section and in some places up to 20 cm. Best case, for me it's a little...

    PVA additive.

    Hi, Is there anything I can add to a PVA/water mix (50/50) to make it harder once dry. I've seen powders that can be added to cement. Would these do?

    Detecting Electric underfloor heating cables.

    The matts are 160W per meter square, and I have a number matts underneath (2 x 10m2 and 1 X 6m2 and 1 X 2m2). All of it's buried under approx 10mm of screed ( this is a max and it varies).

    Detecting Electric underfloor heating cables.

    Another good idea. Though there is about 10mm of screed above the cable, and I wonder if this would spread the heat out uniformly by the time the heat had permeated that far. Will try this. Big cheers

    Detecting Electric underfloor heating cables.

    Nice idea. But so I'm clear. I need to run a direct current through the cables for this to work and not the AC from the mains. I had thought about scattering some iron filings (to detect a small magnetic field around the lines, but I hadn't considered the AC/DC aspect. Cheers.

    Detecting Electric underfloor heating cables.

    I need to knock a few holes through the screed that is covering the under floor heating cables. Anyone have any idea how I successfully locate the cables so I can avoid damaging them? Cheers.

    Running armoured power cable above ground.

    Hi, I need to have the power cables run to a studio at the bottom of my garden (about 50 meters) and I wanted to know whether the cables could be legally run above ground along the fence. Cheers,

    Electric floor heating - what should I expect.

    Yes, they are the primary (and only) heat source for the kitchen and dinning area. That's 28 square meters of 160w electric matts.

    Electric floor heating - what should I expect.

    Matts are 160 watts. I placed 10mm Insulation boards underneath them and they have about 10mm of laytex screed on top. I definately noticed a difference between the floor parts that were not heated (that area was cold). Don't think the problem is due to the floor scensor either, as the power...

    Electric floor heating - what should I expect.

    Guys, I have the mats down and laying in about 10mm of screed. I have four mats totalling 28 square meters. After the system had been on for 35 mins, the floor was no longer cold, but also didn't feel warm (like the demo systems they always have in the tile shops). What should my expectations...
