  3. I just added german vat invoice to my HMRC tax refund forms and not questioned! I had 4 or 5 five invoices in total from EU.
  4. Just seen this post, could you core drill 125mm holes and put 125mm tube through with adaptor as below? https://www.bes.co.uk/domus-supertube-125-elbow-bend-with-spigot-125-mm-od-15545/ then a vertcal lenth of 125mm channel and this adaptor on top https://www.bes.co.uk/domus-supertube-125-vertical-90-bend-white-11415/ Then use this airbrick! https://www.bes.co.uk/domus-horizontal-louvred-airbricks-and-damper-200-mm-x-56-mm-white-15668/ Also available in 100mm sizes but not quite regulation airflow.

  6. Good list I would add this magazine/website!! https://passivehouseplus.co.uk/ Many thanks.
  7. https://www.howdens.com/kitchens/kitchen-sinks-and-taps/kitchen-sinks?sink_type=Belfast Not sure of pricing just need someone with account!!
  8. New Zealand Nudura build with high compressive strength eps at bottom of the wall seem a good way to go. 6mins in shows this detail.
  9. One way to prove system is circulating would be to connect a standard washing machine hose on to the drain valves at the end of manifold making sure no air is left in hose before switching on! This would be like adding a short loop on the manifold but would show up if the main pipe work is airlocked or the loops.
  10. Yes agree with you, but aLso protect ultra is an expensive reflective VCL and so would not cover it with a layer of PIR Board.
  11. Can you confirm all the white valves are fully open and the top flow gauge adjusters are also open and the system has no air in it??

  13. HI Mike Below is the info from Protect, suggest you contact there technical for u value calc missing off the 30mm kingspan and install 25 x50 counter battern then plasterboard. gives service cavity then. Protect VC Foil Ultra Protect VC Foil Ultra - low emissivity and reflective air and vapour control layer (AVCL) suitable for timber, masonry or steel construction. This highly reflective vapour control layer enhances the thermal performance of walls, ceilings and floors when installed with the foil facing into a still airspace. The Protect VC Foil Ultra vapour control later helps to achieve a low overall U-value as part of the wall build up.
