Timely reminder!

| November 11, 2017

It’s about time I started again on a blog!

It’s the time of year when you should think about closing the supply to your garden tap.  You should find a separate stopcock to the supply in your house (maybe under the kitchen sink).  Once you’ve closed that then open the garden tap to drain any water left in the pipe.  This will stop any water expanding (when it would otherwise freeze during the winter period).  So hopefully next spring you should have no leaks.

You might also cover it for good measure, a couple of pairs of old socks would do, but you can also buy outside tap covers from most garden supply centres and other outlets.

 


Blue water from your tap?!

| March 28, 2014

Have you ever had blue water coming out of your kitchen tap?

Although it is not recommended that blue toilet blocks be placed in the cistern, some people still do this. However, this practice has highlighted a problem that sometimes occurs if the w/c was incorrectly setup. If you’ve ever seen the above problem then it is likely that the inlet valve is not working correctly, the overflow pipe is set too low and there is a no air gap between the inlet valve CL mark & the overflow pipe.

Take a look at the link below to see if your loo is correctly setup (even if you haven’t seen any “blue water”)
