    Not sure about the cable run for the cooker (or is it washing machine) circuit... but perhaps you’ve made it safer 😉

    Thanks to your advice decided to replace the whole filling loop instead of just the valve, and just as well because the non return valve on the old one was at fault. All working good now and no leaks so far...

    This bad boy of a shitty valve, which controls the filler loop on my boiler, is leaking so I’m going to replace it.

    All the valves I can find at screw fix etc are double compression fittings. The bottom of this one is obvs a standard compression fitting, but is the top just the same but The flexi hose just screws on, or do I need something special do you think?

    “The damp proof course has been bridged” is probably the most common lie ever written since the dawn of time.
    Probably even beats “I love you too”.

    Thanks mate, for managing to squeeze your bike lock nicely between my frame and the SA gear cable, in Waterloo earlier this eve. Quite a feat!
    Fortunately you can unscrew it by hand and reattach, but it was all stretched and out of adjustment which made for an annoying ride home.

    I live in a ground floor Warner on Perth Rd E10.

    They've got good and bad points. Well laid out, easy enough to make alterations to, nice sense of community.
    If you're a light sleeper then perhaps not a good idea, especially downstairs. I've done extensive and expensive soundproofing work on my ceilings and it's all largely pointless if they have hard floors upstairs. If you can deal with the fact that you will hear considerable noise (the loudness of which depends on how dickish they are, most residents hopefully realise that sound travels between the flats very easily), then you'll be alright! The noise comes from five neighbours too: upstairs/downstairs, both sides, and both diagonal sides.

    Prone to dampness if they haven't been kept breathable over the years.
