    Hah yes, there did seem to be a bit of variance in them. Ta.

    Is that possible in an old Victorian terrace ?

    Yes. If the ceiling has been fucked with already - which it looks like it has - it's less messy and probably easier.

    Obvs. depends on what's above and where the ducting has to go - if it's the empty roof space above then happy days as you can work from it from above. If it's another floor, it's a fairly big disruptive job as you'll big taking big bits of your ceiling out.

    Any thoughts welcome.

    If it's possible put it above the shower and duct it through the ceiling. More from an aesthetics perspective. And fan should be able to shift the air in that size room pretty quickly so placement for efficiency is less of a concern.

    If you use that window, I would be wary of B or C because the fan will pull air in through the window rather than dry air in through the door which is what you are aiming for. I also wouldn't want it near my boiler tbh. No idea if it would fall foul of regs if it is in B or C but from an access perspective it could make things difficult and you've got more chance of fucking something important up when wiring it.

    You know about bathroom splash zoning presumably? You might have to use a 12v fan with a transformer or a zone 2 certified 240v.

    That's a great project for someone. Sold as an XL but doesn't look it, does it...?

    They look OK but are harder to use than a mono mixer and unless you get one with an extendable neck they make a mess.

    And you get two damp patches on your sink surround compared to just one with the mono ;)

    Don't get a traditional one - they are shit.

    Is in budget and possibly not shit (we have a spendier version of it, it's great).

    If I had to guess, lack of revenue due to nobody switching utility provider.

    mainly due to Brexit

    Is this actually true? In normal times I wouldn’t question it, but the govt. has borrowed a fuck tonne of money and given it away to people for free. And there’s a massive backlog of stuff to do that simply wasn’t done in 2020. And there’s a global supply crunch on.

    There’s massive demand for some things and normal demand for others combined with a shrunken workforce (some Brexit stuff there I guess), suppl troubles ( some Brexit stuff there) and a massive backlog. It is demand > supply.

    I agree that crushing rate rises are unlikely.
