Installation art is an artistic genre of three-dimensional works that are often site-specific and designed to transform the perception of a space.

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone can help with a query.
We have recently had a new kitchen installed and are arranging for our freestanding gas cooker to be fitted (Leisure Gourmet Cooker 60cm)
I have read that there needs to be a 20mm gap between the sides of the cooker to meet the Gas Safe...
I'm located in Paris. forgive my average foreign English.
I'm about to install all the plumbing in my van. I'm new to this. I'm wondering if I should recapture the used water from the sink and the bathroom and reinject it into the flush tank or do nothing and waste that water.
I’m trying to replace a toilet downstairs and have come across two issues.
The floor is not level and there is a lip at the front of around 5mm which causes the toilet to rock, even when bolted down. The bolts aren’t the best and are plastic brackets on the inside of the toilet...
Another cheap chineese crap tap, customer has bought a kitchen tap with spray which also has a separate outlet which turns on/off, so both outlets turn off
The problem is when you let go of the spray or turn the other outlet off and the main control/temperature (on the bottom of the tap) is...
We recently had a combi boiler installed to swap out old plumbing sustem with water tank and gas cylinder. You can see end results in the photos. I would like to ask for your opinion on how well this has been done as I was originally promised only two little pipes coming down from the...

I've previously created a thread about my Megaflo issues in the past, Baxi have agreed to replace the cylinder as an appliance change under warranty. May I ask if you you guys can have a look at my install and recommend any optimisations, prior to Baxi installing the new cylinder.
I'm just putting this out here in case I am missing something.
Can anyone think of a valid reason why a plumber would install a completely new S-Plan CH installation (apart from the boiler)
but NOT install the necessary electrical control system to to allow the CH and HW to be turned on and off...
Hi there! I moved house a few months ago, and our boiler has packed it in (great timing eh?) It's an old thing (potterton kingfisher MF),but was installed in a room in the center of the house with the flue extending out the side wall onto an alley that actually belongs to our neighbour. We had...
Dyno have fitted a PRV under the kitchen sink in an attempt to resolve a H/W cylinder popping noise and issues with mixer taps, which unfortunately hasn’t cured the issue. I am concerned with the installation of the PRV (and the removal of the NRV) and would like to hear your comments...
My Dad had a new Grant Vortex Oil boiler installed about a year ago now. It was a professional installer who fitted it for him at the time.
I was up feesing his dog today and noticed a couple of things when looking at it. See photo below
His house was built in the 1970s. I note there is no...
Fully ripped out an old bathroom and installing a new one.
Getting mixed messages from Plumber and my father who is a Joiner/Carpenter

Father thinks that the walls should be plastered first, he has left enough clearance...
We're having a new gas boiler fitted in the kitchen next week and I was wondering if anyone could advise me on what kind of access the installer will need to upstairs radiators? I was told the installer might need to access all the radiators in the house to drain the system. Is this correct? My...
I hope I post this in the right section. I bought a house couple of months ago. There was an old, broken back boiler installed in the fireplace, so I looked for a company to replace it with a nice shiny combi boiler. A gentleman came over to estimate the work. He offered to replace the...
At our old flat, we had a combi boiler which dealt with heating and hot water without an additional tank. There was an external timer next to the boiler, and a room thermostat (manual) in the hallway. I was able to replace the latter with a receiver and wireless (not smart) thermostat...
hot water cylinder
Hi all, first of all I'm not a plumber so forgive my ignorance. We are currently getting a boiler stove installed. This involves connecting the plumbing and some electrical to our existing heating system. The Plumber has requested that our electrician installs a spur at the location of the...
I saw in the news the latest craze in the UK is heat pumps for hot water and heating. I wondered if a heat pump installer in the UK needs an F-Gas qualification to do this type of installation in a domestic/commercial environment and to sign it off.
