    Hi - I am wanting to attach an extractor to the underside of this tile vent, but am unsure how to. Is this a specific make that requires its own connector? Internally it has a 100mm round hole, but nothing protrudes downwards to allow a hose to be cable tied/taped onto it. Any ideas?....


    Apologies for the poor picture! :oops:

    Is it lead? Got a photo of the inside?

    No, looks to be plastic, possibly 10 years old or so? Its a bit of a crawl into the roof space to possibly get a snap - will try!

    It is likely to be a roof space vent and not a tile vent terminal.

    Swap it for a TVT and attach a length of flexi-hose to the spigot with duct tape.

    aaarg, not possible without a roofer and additional expense/hassle/delay. is it not possible to easily utilise it by way of a simple connection?

    Possibly with a bit of clever fiddling and plenty of duct tape.

    You need to be careful though, that you don't dislodge the tile from its lugs as it may not be nailed.

    Well here is the underside - does this suggest I will need to modify something to fit?
