    Replace MagnaClean with another filter

    Background - I'm a DIYer but am comfortable with draining down systems, adding radiators and using flux and solder etc. So I've inherited an old system in our house with a 28mm old-style MagnaClean on the return. Both isolation valves are knackered (common fault the internet tells me!) so I've...

    Another LIDL good buy

    My local store was having a plumbing special in their centre aisle section and I found a nice wee black bender for microbore pipe for £5.99 It's solidly built and pulls really nice bends, so was well worth the punt.

    Yet another cheap failure

    Buy cheap and you buy twice, and you may in fact flood your kitchen in the process. The flexi in the picture burst just under the tap for no apparent reason other than in my opinion it was cheap tat. The tap itself was an Ebay purchase and felt like tin, when compared to the Bristan one it is...

    Yet another 'how to remove this tap head?'

    Hi all, Bathroom basin hot water tap has slow drip. Want to replace the washer (if possible) but have no idea how to remove the knob head to get at the gubbins. It has no obvious grub screws 'round the back. Both knobs have always wobbled a bit and it only requires quarter-turn to go fully...

    How easy is to add another rad to this room please?

    Good afternoon I have 10 radiators running off my Ecotec Plus 360 system boiler. I am looking to add another rad to a bedroom so there are 2 as the one on its own is not enough. I believe the boiler should be big enough as another website said it can take 10 -14 rads. Its a real pain as I will...

    When is a room air vent for flame effect gas fire really needed (with BS)

    Some history is that one gas engineer (who checked safety after fitting of a new gas meter) in the past said I had to have an air vent fitted in the lounge as gas fire required it, but then another engineer (British Gas) said if it is 7½ bar & below this is not necessary, so blocked the said up...
