 Post subject: Under the floor ....
PostPosted: Mon Nov 27, 2017 8:01 pm 
Lifted boards to track down the reason for the noisy CH pipes.

Seems like someone decide to fill in the gaps with foam and prop up any missing supporting batons, or whatever the logic behind it was?

A line was cut in the boards to allow a phone line to be put inserted, :scratch:

PostPosted: Wed Apr 12, 2017 4:36 pm 
A friend of mine asked me to have a look at the outside lights and socket in his garden, that run from his brick built shed. He's recently bought the house. This was the mess inside the junction box, although I had removed a couple of choc blocks already.

Whoever installed it use random combinations of the colours. The red cable on the bottom right is the (isolated) line from the house, light blue is ...

PostPosted: Thu Mar 30, 2017 2:22 pm 
We have a few of these around the place at work, all marked 'do not turn off' in marker pen. The pic is of the fridge spur. Another runs the door entry system and there appears to be no key option (large glass magnetic locked door with no obvious key hole)

PostPosted: Mon Jan 09, 2017 12:29 am 
Hello All UHW. Newbie here. I have questions, but this forum caught my eye.

I wish we'd not. I wasn't that impressed with his work. But his efforts with the shower were ...

PostPosted: Sat Dec 17, 2016 4:34 pm 
Painful. :shock:

In the process of decomissioning a woodburner and power station sized flue smashed through the wall today, only to find the lovely toerags who installed it had just chopped the ring main in half and left live unterminated cables loose in the board cavity for some other poor b*stard to not be able to find when it doesn't pass the electrical testing! NICE!! ...
