    Drainage Along Side of House

    Makes sense, I imagine that's an expensive thing to fix once it's been cavity filled :( Maybe i'll just fix the drainage and pretend it's all fine...

    Drainage Along Side of House

    Thanks, yes the airbricks are just under the DPC but the problem is they are at the driveway level as it's been built up at some point. So digging out a small channel with a drain seems like the way to go, to at least add some more height from surface level. Does the fact they have cavity...

    Drainage Along Side of House

    Thanks, that looks ideal. I think i'd be ok fitting those but would struggle connecting the end to the existing guttering down pipe system. Is that likely a difficult job? I guess those have to be installed at a slight slope as well? Maybe I should try a MyBuilder handyman search for this kind...

    Drainage Along Side of House

    Hi, One side of my house has (stupidly) had the driveway built up to be level with two airbricks. I've only recently moved in but given the past couple of days rain there's 100% water getting in the airbricks. Downstairs floors are suspended/tiled so I can't see how bad things are under them...

    Shower Sealant Leak Help

    Thanks, yes it's an Elegant one and from watching the youtube vids I'm fairly sure as you say, it shouldn't be sealed along the bottom edge there as that blocks escape water. If just the outside is sealed it should drain out nicely there. All seems a bit of a bodge job!

    Shower Sealant Leak Help

    It is a screw cap yes, if you look inside there is just a void inside the metal frame, I think it's designed such that it's fine for water to get in and it's meant to just drain out at the bottom safely on the inside. I guess maybe I should bite the bullet at remove the whole frame and correctly...

    Shower Sealant Leak Help

    Hi, I've recently had a new shower/tiles fitted and suffering with sealant leaks around the bifold door frame. Spent ages pooring water in seals, and diagnosed it to water getting inside the frame. The frame is fully sealed on the outside only, which I think is correct. See image below, but it...

    Spec me a CCTV System

    I just got one of these Dahua's and looks like it's missing the starlight features you mention :( daytime quality is really decent '4k' but you would struggle to ID a face at >10m in pitch black night IR :( I thought it might be a bit better for £85. Would you recommend spending less on the 2MP...

    Cat5 through external wall

    Hi, Please can someone help me with the easiest way to put 4x Cat5e cables out through an external wall? These are for PoE CCTV and i'd like to just drill one hole if possible with an SDS drill. I'd like to use this faceplate on this backing plate but I'm not sure on: - What size hole to drill...

    What's this leaking shower part called?

    Hi, I've just noticed that we have a leak in the plastic part that the shower hose connects to. It's a Mira Excel shower, but I think this is a standard part rather than shower specific? You can see there's a small crack at the top of the white plastic connector. So i need to replace that, but...

    Radiator to Towel Rail

    Hi, I'd like to change a bathroom radiator to a heated towel rail, the current rad pipe centres are 680mm and they come up threw a tiled floor and have a tiled wall behind - this doesn't really align with any out the box towel rails I can find. So probably stupid question, but will a plumber...

    Garden Shredders

    Does anyone have a decent one? I've been looking at the Bosch Shredder AXT 25 TC, which seems to come up on offers now and again for £280. While this is one/the more expensive ones, the reviews still suggest problems, mainly that they seem good for small branches, but a bit rubbish for anything...

    AMD Zen 2 (Ryzen 3000) - *** NO COMPETITOR HINTING ***

    For running a 3600 at stock, what RAM would you guys recommend? Would VENGEANCE LPX 32GB (2X16GB) DDR4 PC4-24000C15 3000MHZ be suitable, or better off spending more on faster 2x8gb?

    Images of items I have purchased (except trainers)

    I've just had a similar one fitted for hot and cold - made a massive difference :) They are noisy though and pipes carry the vibration around the house, but decent shower pressure is worth it!

    Power Tools & General Tools Recommendations & Advice

    Thanks will go with one of those :) I did read that when using an SDS for cable drilling it's easy to get huge chunks of brick taken out on the exit hole. Any tips for avoiding that, or is it just a case of going slowly at it will be fine?

    Power Tools & General Tools Recommendations & Advice

    Cool thanks, would the blue £100 "Bosch Professional GBH 2-26 Corded 240 V Rotary Hammer Drill with SDS Plus" be suitable and drive a 1m sds bit suitably?
