1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    'Behaviour

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    so lads, as some of u remember i mooved to this apartments less than one year ago...

    it tooks me some £££ to make some renovation (just bit of plastering, ceiling repaint, new wallpaper e.t.c.) ant this cash still wasn't deicated from my monthly payments for 100%

    about two hours ago my lights gone, it was simply shortred
    and the reason for that - hot water leak from my neighbour upstairs
    this jerk has all his water plines rebuilt by some "experienced" plumber about three years ago
    all for 10mm copper instead of 3/4"

    my landlord phone is "out of coverage area or switched off"

    it tooks me half an hour to find out where to cut off the hot water riser

    so now have no hot water, no room-lightning
    but have a small niagrafall from my chandelier and all-wet wallpaper on one of 4 walls

    really hope that my lanlord have a good insurance company,
    otherways this s#!t will take another three-four month to fix

    :(:(:(

    Check with citizens advise bureau you may be able to withhold rent as you do not have hot water, check first and keep paying until you get a definitive answer

    Vitalich does not have the right to withold rent. Just saying, he may have other courses of redress, but this isn't one of them.

    thanks to all for support

    still have no lights at home (thanks other electric works)

    the guy upstairs tooki his part of responsibility to go on with ceiling repaint/replastering
    (but only after the landlord offers one of his subcontractors who works for 250/day/man price :))

    and the electrics have to be covered by insurance
    - we will see how long a man can live with candles in the house
    same time my mrs said that candles everywere is so romantic :):):):):)

    Are you sure it isnt the heating pipes that are leaking ? If I ever have any problems with my house I fix them and bill my landlord for the materials and labour!

    maybe , but you just don't see it used much thses days because most plumbers use speedfit , hep2o pvc pipe on coils , I know I do under floors and in roof spaces, but cooper mirco bore, that would cost a small fortune to plumb a whole house, plus you'd be able to will fast then the taps :eek:

    it was used alot in the 80s but was a b****r for blockages and microbore fell out of favour.
    coming back in now but only in plastic pipe, 10mm to and from radiators to manifold, 22mm to and from the boiler.
    sounds like someone had a job lot in their lockup from the 'good old days'

    10mm was used a few years ago for radiators from 1997 to id guess 2005 as my last two houses didn't have it but my previous one did. its for v high pressure systems

    i bet no one did tried to use GAS valves (all yellow) for hot water plumbing

    as well as 10-12-15 mm pipelines can be used for end delivery to tap/bath/loo or radiator
    and u have to use least 20 mm for the main line to avoid any resonance and pressure hits.
