Hi all. Was looking at the Milwaukee transfer pump and wondering if it was fit for purpose ? I’m doing new build and use a drill pump to pressure test and thought this piece of kit might make life a bit easier ? Any thoughts please? Thank you.

Looking to get one of these for a while and just got a job that's perfect for it to save me a fat drain down on a very old property, which one do you guys who use them rate, this place has 28mm return so ideally something suitable for that. Cheers.

Hi, does anybody know what gas is in the freeze master's pipe freezing units, mine could do with a check and a top up. My local aircon branch said they might be able to re-gas the unit if it contained a gas they had. Thanks in advance.

I'm thinking of getting a Stud Finder, so that when I drill or nail something into a wall at home, I don't puncture any pipes, wires etc. I heard that cheap ones aren't good, not sure if this is true. Any recommendations would be very welcome 😉
