Installation art is an artistic genre of three-dimensional works that are often site-specific and designed to transform the perception of a space. Generally, the term is applied to interior spaces, whereas exterior interventions are often called public art, land art or art intervention; however, the boundaries between these terms overlap.
I am after advice on installing a bidet in a toilet with the water valve hidden inside the cistern.
I am renting. Is there anyone with a creative way to go about this without drilling the cistern?
If that doesn’t make a lot of sense, let me know and I will add a photo.
Thank you very...
Greetings, esteemed community members,
I find myself in possession of a remote and highly inaccessible plot of land, devoid of any utilities. On this land, there exists a well housing a 10-year-old pump that has never been utilized. I intend to conduct a thorough test using a portable...
HI, we have replaced 3 manifolds (1 upstairs 2 downstairs) with new Warmup units. The installation manual from Warmup states that to fill the system you have to fill each circuit in turn using the fill / drain points on each manifold. However, my plumber said that he always uses the filling loop...
Big gas noob here. We got a gas cooker installed a few days ago, and the gas cooker is now sitting quite far away from the wall (3cm which sounds like not much but throws the balance off of the kitchen), which means there's a large gap now between the cooker and the wall, but it now...
Hi gents and ladies,
Making the probable mistake of buying a house at present : bit of a fixer with a shoddy but recent boiler installation. Have a bit of a question for our resident gas people, if you can possibly help me out here.
The vendors seem to have lost the installation invoice, but...
Hi, the Lux 6L needs 1bar pressure in the manual, but I want to gravity feed it from the hot water line - given that we waste more that 6L of cold getting hot from the tank - that would be about 0.4 bar. Is that enough for an unvented heater? Intenting to seal it to expand back into hot feed pipe.
My house was a bungalow that was extended up into the roof, and a bathroom installed up there. The hot water cylinder remains on the ground floor. The mains water pressure is low. A Stuart Monsoon U3 dual pump was installed to pump both hot and cold.
I am thinking that this is the wrong type of...
I'm replacing my multi-zone Danfoss controllers with Hive, so far the downstairs Hive receiver is wired in and working well. I'm having a problem wiring in the Hive Single Channel receiver to replace a Danfoss TP 4000 for the upstairs zone.
The TP 4000 is battery powered and has 2 connected...

During a recent service to a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 36 cdi compact boiler within my property, a filter was removed by the plumber. (see photo).
I was told it was easy enough to purchase a new one and reinstall myself. Despite a search I can't find a replica filter anywhere. Is...
I am hoping that you can give us some advice. We're in the UK, and have contracted a company to completely refit the first floor bathroom. The first fix was completed a few days ago. We haven't moved in yet.
When we returned to the property just now, the kitchen ceiling had caved...
Hi, I’m installing a down pipe which goes from the house to a waste water treatment tank. The length of the route is 55 meters and the pipe diameter is 125mm (which collects black water from 5 toilets, grey waters are on a separate pipe). For about 35 meters the pipe has a good inclination of...
I have just purchased a Mira digital pumped shower
This will fit above an existing bath.
Can I use a T from the 22 mm bath feeds to connect the hot and cold to the module.
Currently the bath is fed from below floor level.
Ideally I would take a feed from the hot water cylinder and from the...

Where it's being installed to the far left I have an electric shower followed by a sink, to the right off the macerator there will be a kitchen sink on the other side off the partition.
Will I need a stop check valve in...
I am building a mother in law sweet i am having some trouble designing her septic and with decent venting.
im attaching a basic diagram of her floor plan and would like to hear some ideas of how i need to vent this
the ceiling will be cathedral so that will make this more difficult
The basin & pedestal I bought recently has got me scratching my head, as it doesn’t seem to have an obvious method of joining them together securely. This is in contrast to the existing one which has a semi circular groove that the basin fits onto the pedestal & you can adjust to fit flush...
I have just had 2 new vented hot water cylinders installed by a plumber (not yet finished) however I am a little concerned as the pipes are not attached to anything, the empty tank on the left wobbles a little on uneven floor and is slightly on the wonk. The plumber is really great but this was...
