    Discount Offers of the Week

    Yes, I was watching the auction the other week, lots of pods, garden houses/offices etc. Started nice and low and then quickly jumped up during the last few days. I wish @Ferdinand would stop bloody promoting these auctions on here!!!

    Discount Offers of the Week

    Some of these opening bids appear ambitious, take the Freya bath (£200 opening bid) plus 20% hammer price + 20% VAT which gets you close to £300 on top of which will be your transport costs (unless you live near Sheffield to collect). And it could be ex-showroom quality. New from soak.com is £400 inc delivery! Be interesting to see what it goes for.

    £90 reduced to £18 inc del for shower valve! https://www.bathstore.com/products/square-thermostatic-shower-valve-20007015720.html? And found some baths in there also if anyone's looking: https://www.bathstore.com/products/bathstore-sale/massive-stock-clearance#price_range=m0&f_product_category[]=Bath&sort=price ASC&page=1 It's no wonder this place may be going down the plug hole. Local store always have 50-80% "plus another 25%" discount signs on the windows (and if you'd go in and ask about the reductions they just didn't add up and were certainly not the massive discounts that they appeared to be advertising.

    Which unit

    I also went through BPC and went for the Vent Axia Kinetic Plus B, which was a bt more £ than the others that they offered me, but did have the summer bypass option, easy to install, efficiency was better than the others IIRC. There's also quite a few people on here who have gone for that option, so I thought I wouldn't be too far wrong with that choice. Not quite installed it all (loft is too hot) but also plan to site it on top of platform on the ceiling joists. Maybe with some rubber matting to reduce noise/vibration. If that fails, suspending it from rafters.

    SunAmp : Snog, Marry, Avoid?

    Well, maybe that is where Fischer come in. Then there's always the likes of Everest Glazing they could push these units through...

    SunAmp : Snog, Marry, Avoid?

    Talking of technical support, does anyone have a contact at Sunamp that they could PM me? People that used to be there aren't there any longer and then when I am told that someone should be in touch, no contact is ever made. The guy who's installing my 12kw eDual units, needs some technical support! Or perhaps Sunamp have sold that part of the transaction to Fischer as well! Sunamp really need to sort out there customer support if they continue to sell direct to the public or even trade.

    Actually, I did ask my brother, but dragging his heels with his extension. Just wasted 1hr of my life going through all those lovely auction listings ("Do I need a red double decker bus? NO! But look at the price!!!!...........") If anyone needs scaffolding wants to start a scaffolding company: https://www.bidspotter.co.uk/en-gb/auction-catalogues/timed/eddisons/catalogue-id-eddiso10483#lot-f9947397-6d07-44fd-9ea9-aa5400fe689d Not sure where they are based, but potentially a big saving if you have a large build/have space to store the gear you don't need!

    Walk on glazing? Where's that then??????????
  11. oranjeboom


    Yes, it's ATAB. I did contact them, but they just routed me back to the UK. There's also a Polish outfit who have a presence in the UK who appear to do an identical design (though I suspect that they too source from ATAB. But they do at least fit as part of the service (which is a few £k more).

    @joth yes, getting from CSS. Just over 5k iirc which is for 2 half winders. The annoying thing is they appear to be a middle-man business as the actual staircase is manufactured in Sweden.

    I think @PeterStarck has a modular staircase that he fitted himself which looked good. You don't necesarily have to go for steel. I was going down that path but out of the 3 that came to look/quote, none of them ended up giving me a quote (no reasons given, nada...pretty typical service down this way it seems). If it's a fairly straight forward design, then you may have more luck, but I guess many are concerned not only with the design itself but also the BRegs. Have you considered something like this in timber? Have decided to go for that design mysef now. Certainly cheaper than steel. Also think of the glass and all that cleaning if you have 'little hands' to deal with....

    used water softener: harvey twin tank worth a risk?

    Hi Jeremy - thanks for the valued input. I'll probably go and have a look tomorrow then and see which tube is cracked precisely. I think as it's a local unit, the water head will be set to high (I hope) in which case good for me....as long as I can get it to work. I don't really have time to be faffing around ("just buy a new one.....") but a few hundred saved will help in other areas.
