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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    They sound quite interesting and I've seen one advertised that does everything in the one unit, unfortunately they're not cheap.

    We had them in work, very handy for tea making but they were always breaking down. The were removed and replaced to one of those wall thingys which are of course much better. I was offered one of the taps (and all the fixings to make them work) they removed but because of their reliability I decided not to bother. The ones here were priced at £700-800 each. That's a lot of Asda kettles at that money.

    Are these things cost effective or is just another passing fad that some bright spark thought of ? Have we run out of time ? do we actually need access to instant boiled water ?

    I reckon i will go pop the kettle on :)

    A fad, maybe. A must have, no. As I said earlier in a previous post, they were fun to use, a little button on top and instant hot water, but reliability wise, they were useless. Saying that, if money was no object and my kitchen was huge, would I have one Oh Yes. They are as posh as posh gets and a decent talking point but I cannot imagine they are cheap to run unless you install them more on a commercial kitchen, but then you'd go for a wall one. I really do think they are a gimmick, made because they can but for the money, if your lucky they last two years without the constant fixing they cannot be cost effective... But, if my misses seen one, I'm sure she'd want one fitted, would I fit it, for her yes...:rolleyes:;):up:

    Good idea, bear in mind that the instant hot water taps have an electrical unit under the worktop that has to go in a unit. I've fitted them on jobs with sink waste disposal units, it gets very crowded under the sink with the waste pipework too.

    Take a look at granite worktops too Stevie, they have become really cheap to get hold of now and I am fitting loads. Its now less than half price.

    The worktop that's on is cocobolo effect or something like that, but has been mitred well at the joint instead of those awful strips, and the wife loves it!!

    Ive change the sink unit for a 600mm, so plenty room if we fancy the tap, also moved the cooker to an outside wall so the extraction fan vents outside.

    I better get my finger out, to get a bit of piece!!

    WE have a insinkerator hc tap[​IMG]

    the water is filtered but it is a hot and cold water tap - the hot water is not boiling like some.
    After 18 months the heater tank which fits under the sink started leaking from a gasket that joins the two halves of the tank.
    Upon examination the tank is flimsy and looks under engineered.
    The good thing is it was replaced under warranty.

    It is fitted in addition to the normal tap.
