 Post subject: Can a mira shower case be repaired?
PostPosted: Fri Aug 18, 2017 12:51 am 
I have a 13 year old mira advance electric shower that's attached to the wall by two
screws. For no obvious reason the case broke away around the top screw, leaving the screw
in the wall and the shower leaning outward. The broken area seems to be limited to the
compartment the screw is in.

But I also found a 1.5 inch crack on the underside of the unit, which seems to go up the ...

 Post subject: What is happening.
PostPosted: Thu Aug 17, 2017 7:09 pm 
On visiting a friend who had an overflow problem from her cold water tank in the loft.

On investigating it seemed that the boiler system was fine and the tank drained when the hot water taps were switched on individually albeit slowly.

However when both the downstairs kitchen hot AND cold taps were on the cold water tank began to fill up caused the overflow to produce water as she described.

Does anyone have any ...

 Post subject: Reverse Osmosis
PostPosted: Thu Aug 17, 2017 2:02 pm 
My house is 120 metres from the road water main.

The problem is the water pipe to my house is lead.To replace the pipe would mean a complex moling exercise and extensive reinstatement works.

I have heard about reverse osmosis and was wandering whether anybody has experience of this and whether it actually removes all the lead or just a high percentage.

Thank You.

 Post subject: Broken remote sink drain plug
PostPosted: Thu Aug 17, 2017 12:08 pm 
I have a remote operation of my kitchen sink plug.

This used to work.

Pulling the button UP still releases the drain, but pushing the button DOWN does not move the lever to the right to engage the drain.

Has the tension gone?

Does the lever simply need lubrication?

Moving the lever directly left and right (ie/ not using the button) does work and engages/disengages the drain.

Mode of operation:

 Post subject: Cast iron cistern refurb
PostPosted: Tue Aug 15, 2017 8:47 pm 
When we bought our house the original cast iron cistern had been disconnected but still mounted in the old outhouse

We're renovating and would like to use the cistern as the 'new' downstairs loo, although it's clear it needs refurbish

I have zero plumbing experience but I'm not afraid of having a go.

Looking for anyone who has any experience of doing a similar job to guide me through it. I have no idea if ...

 Post subject: Water Pressure Issue On New Shower System
PostPosted: Sun Aug 13, 2017 10:25 pm 
Hi everyone,

I posted this message on a different forum and just wanted to see what people here think.

I need some help regarding a new shower system that has just been fitted. I have recently had my bathroom made wheelchair accessible for my disability and I have a Hansgrohe Raindance overhead shower and handheld Hansgrohe Select with an iBox.

I had a close family member install the system as they have already installed one ...

 Post subject: Fitting a Water softener with a Ideal Vouge Combi
PostPosted: Sun Aug 13, 2017 8:39 pm 
Hi all,
I'm in the process of altering the pluming under the sink to fit a "water2buy 200" water softener and was wondering what this silver cylinder does located after the inline magnet softener already fitted, see picture below.

Can I remove this or is it needed for the correct function of the combo boiler and helps control the water pressure, or is in needed for the Water Bylaws?

Any help would be very welcome.
