Re: Attach Curtain Bracket to Wooden Plinth - Questionable Size

I drilled a pilot hole just below the plinth and 30mm in I hit metal. It also sounds hollow below the length of the plinth where it sounds "normal" above it.

Now I'm more confused.

Re: Attach Curtain Bracket to Wooden Plinth - Questionable Size

Thank you.

The plinth us screwed in multiple places to the wall.

The bottom of the plinth is 100mm up from the window so I going to put the brackets directly under the plinth using two brown wall plugs.

Attach Curtain Bracket to Wooden Plinth - Questionable Size

Hi everyone, Recently moved and looking to put up curtain poles but nearly every window has a wooden batten above the window. This wouldn’t normally be an issue but where I’d like to attach the brackets would be very close to the top/bottom of the wooden plinth. Therefore imo not providing adequate ...

Re: Central Heating Wiring - That Cant be Right - Adding a iBoost

Hi Eric, If I’ve posted this in the wrong place then please just say that. I posted it here because from my amature perspective my CH and HW all comes under the central heating title. My question was about the wiring of my ‘central heating’ and to add a iboost to the ‘central heating’ wiring. Thanks...

Re: Central Heating Wiring - That Cant be Right - Adding a iBoost

Done some more research and I’ve got a dual channel system which is the two white cables that come up from the left.

It looks like I’ve got a 12 connector block where ‘normal’ diagrams only have 10 and the L, N and E are in the incorrect order.

Any advice on how to wire the iboost?

Re: Central Heating Wiring - That Cant be Right - Adding a iBoost

Hi Eric, Thanks for getting back to me. The solar iboost is only for heating hot water when the house is generating surplus energy. I've been tracking my solar generation and energy use for the last 4 years and I'm generating surplus power at least 1.5kw for long enough time each day (minus late Nov...

Central Heating Wiring - That Cant be Right - Adding a iBoost

Hi, I've had PV solar panels for a while now and finally brought a solar iboost to divert the excess solar generated towards the immersion heater. I'm fairly confident when it comes to diy and electrics but with this, I'm stuck. I feel like I have more wires than are needed and it just doesn't make ...

Re: Moving joist in bathroom floor rubbing on cables?

Your suggestion worked a treat. I used two L brackets I had in the shed, the first one slid under pretty easily, the second one needed a few wacks with the hammer which made it nice and secure.

After this I sprayed a little expanding foam adhesive around it.

Thanks again.

Moving joist in bathroom floor rubbing on cables?

I’ve changed the light fitting below my bathroom, the cables weren’t long enough so I lifted a floorboard and done what I needed to do. A while back we skimmed the hallway ceiling and I remember the plastered finding a rusty screw that poked through each time someone visited the bathroom so I though...

Touch up newly skimmed walls

Hi, I recently had my hallway skimmed by a professional. There are a few areas where it's not a flat as it could be and gaps around the door frame. What's the best method/product to fill in these gaps/smoothing out? Before you say "get the plaster back in", it took me months to get one to ...
