If its the pipes tickinmg or clicking that suggests that the joists were not notched enough and the pipes are binding o them. When the system starts up the pipes expand. Because they are tight on the joists they stick a lttle bit and you get the ticking/clicking noise as they get hotter. The reverse...

I think some more details about how your system is put together would be a good idea please.

17th Edn has dispensed with Zone 3. Zone 1 still extends to 225mm above the floor for a bath/shower. At 2.35m you are outside the zones and can fit what you want as long as it conforms to the appropriate IP rating. If its a new circuit then its notifiable and should be done by a qualified electricia...

The Water Regs used to say that you had to use a screw down valve complying with BS1010. That is no longer the case. So yes a lever valve can be used but there are two inherent disadvantages. First you can't take the guts out to change them if they become problematical in future years (but that may ...

As Htg suggests as an electric shower it should be fed from mains and if the rest of your house has good pressure that implies there is nothing wrng with your pressure. Pressure and flow rate are NOT the same and I suspect yours is a flow rate problem. Its either a blockage in the pipework or the po...

I would have thought single pump and two zone valves might have been better, easier and more conventional. Sorry that doesn't actually answer your question though.

If your solid fuel stove is producing the hot water for your CH system then yes it can on the face of it.

If the property is that large then a suitably sized system boiler together with an unvented installation will outperform a combi any day. Yes you could use multiple combis but its complicated and you need assistance from someone more experienced in that field than I. In any event you do not say what...

Personally I'd use neither - I'd get a proper spread in to do it but thats because I'm carp at plastering anything but small areas. 15 years I've been trying to master the skills but it completely escapes me so I gave up.

Sorry if that isn't much help to you.

First thing to do is cancel the appointment and arrange for a reasonably priced fellow who knows what he is doing. £ 80.00 an hour is theft particularly when the guy is either that incompetant or thinks that you are that stupid to believe that changing the shower mixer will affect what is happening ...

Have you got a room stat? What temperature is it set to? Does the heat in the room increase if you raise the temp on the roomstat? Have you got TRVs on your rads? What are they set to? Try winding them up to max in conjunction with raising the temp on the roomstat. When you are too hot then adjust b...
