    Thoughts on this flue

    Installed 2 days ago, Worcester 4000. Haven’t seen anything like this before, any thoughts. Personally I would have gone horizontal with an offset bend in the roof space ( to get minimum distance from boundary) and terminated at the gable end.

    Hydramax (Aqualisa) mixer - thoughts on this?

    Having only really dealt with bar mixers and electric showers this would be a first for me. So my mixer shower started going hot and cold every now and then, and eventually started to leak frequently from the middle, so replaced the cartridge, which has solved the 2 issues. This is the bit...
