The attached pic is of an airing cupboard with hot water tank and associated pipework etc. Does anyone know what the device is with the white sealant around it near the tank? I assume it's to allow you to monitor water dripping from something.
Thanks.Airing Cupboard.jpg

Sounds a good idea. The colour of the floor looks like there has been a leak at some point. This might explain the quality repair job at the bottom of the Tundish. ;-)

Thank god we dont have those types of walnut whips in Yorkshire
Why?
I bet yours are the other way up eh?

Ours used to have half the walnut on top and the other half in the bottom below the creamy bit.

I am going back a bit though for that.

I fancy one now.
