What paint did you use? May sound a daft question but believe me it's not. Docs right though in the final analysis - it'll probably all have to come off. When you repaint mistcoat (80-90% paint / 10-20% water depending on the paint) it first using matt emulsion of the same type as you'll use for the...

@ thedoctor Not sure I understand why you censored my mildest of rebukes to aztecjohn for misleading the OP by saying "it's easy" and giving clearly duff gen when he manifestly misunderstood the question in the first place. What's worse - giving wrong data or a small slap. If I get censore...

Sparks I know always fits the isolators above head height to stop the practice. Fetch the sparky who fitted it back in again. Did he guarantee his work - h...

If it's the floor ditch the idea of chipboard it just won't survive in a wet(tish) area. OMG - MDF? Always rely on the sheds! As for aquapanel it's really for tiling over.

Molly If it's leaking inside the bowl then it has the mechanism that bobplum describes and the solution is exactly as he says.
