Laying of Patio

Hello GB I noticed no one had replied to you so I thought I'd say hello and make the following suggestions:- Try looking for a general builder. Any builder should be able to lay your patio. If you are using slabs and are laying them onto sharp sand, make sure prior to laying the sand a membrame is u...

Cooker Timer

Hello Kevin1414

Sarahc's quite right what she says. Set the timer in the MANUAL position. Some timers show the manual position as a picture of a hand.

....Timers, who needs 'em!

Victorian Bath

Hi Pea Souper

I've sent you a PM on the subject, though I must admit I have very little knowledge in Bath Restoration as this is a very specialist area.

Good luck

Chipped Bath

Hello Dave
So sorry I really can't help with that one.
I don't know what to suggest.
Perhaps someone else reading this will know and will be able to advise you.
All the best

Painting over Galvanised Metal

Hello Gemstone Firstly please don't feel bad about asking me about your DIY issues, as this is exactly what this thread is for. Galvanised steel which is to be painted requires a product known as Mordent Solution. This is sometimes also known as T-Wash. It is an acid based solution which can be appl...

Your Staircase

Hi Sarahc Stripping a staircase is a tedious task, especially if you have any kind of decorative ballustrade. It can often take a while to get down to all the layers of paint. However you'll be deeply satisfied when it's done. The "tarry" black paint you mention sounds like an early oil-based primer...

Hello everyone, There are so many dodgy contractors around who would think nothing of stitching unsuspecting people up for £1000's.

Hello JR

Hello JR You sound a bit angry for some reason, or are you having a laugh. Please forgive me if I don't share your same humour. Yes Ketchup doesn't have anything to do with DIY, but I don't mind chatting with Gemstone. However Gemstone did mention he had an invention. This idea of his was to solve a...

Recycling

Hello. May I say I've had recycling for quite some time now. As part of a global effort it is of course a very good thing...I couldn't argue. The recycling proceedure is quite complicated. You are asked to rinse out empty bottles, cans, etc. The paper must be sorted and no plastics. The bottles must...

Is this for real?

Hello Gemstone For the first time on this thread I'm a bit lost for words. Do you really suffer such trauma opening a new bottle of ketchup? As an idea it would obviously work, but now it's been publicly disclosed it would no longer be patentable under the rules set by The Patent Office. There may a...

Hello Sarahc OK I've found the particular model you mean. Have PM'd you the details how to find it. You will need a Demodulator. Basically it's a unit which converts SCART to RF. The type you will require will have a SCART Plug on one end of a lead and a small box on the other. Within the small box ...

If you can take your 3/4" pipe to a metal fabricators, they may be able to cut a thread or two for a drink. I've just had a quick look on ebay under "Pipe Threading" and there are quite...

Bacteria & thermostat settings

Whilst this will save you cash on your heating bills, building regulations suggests a minimum temp of 60 degrees for your hot water. There are bugs that can breed in a water system if the temperature doesn't get to 60 degrees, which is hot enough to kill them off. Hello Yes you're quite right. 60+ ...
