  1. It's all off unscrewed completely now. I'm going to clean everything today. Then tomorrow CT1 clear around tray corners where it meets showerwall, let it dry then Forever White over top around tray (only the sides against wall). Then screw channel back on, put back on glass and CT1 clear on OUTSIDE ONLY none elsewhere inside. Hopefully then this will solve everything....
  2. It's off - there was a plastic seal! I'm a bit confused really as I didn't see any silicone inside to be honest but but we were getting water that appeared to be on the skirting (you can see the mark) and the opinion was it was water getting trapped in the channel. Do I now need to also remove the metal channel to see if there is any water or sealant in there before putting everything back and resealing?

  4. I see the glass is fitted into the metal channel but how on earth do we get the glass out of it.
  5. So the mission to take the screen off and reseal the tray as we have a leak where water is running from the skirting and I believe it's due to an incorrectly fitted screen thanks @Nickfromwales Removed silicone inside, removed bar, removed silicone on outside. It's still stuck! How the hell do you get the glass off the tray? Does it come out with the metal bit against the shoerwall, e.g. is the glass sealed into that or is there a knack. The bottom bit is moving but nothing else!
  6. We are looking into prices for a fitted furniture for the office and my dad has kindly filled in the forms to open a trade account. His local Howdens is different to mine and I'm just wondering how this will work in practice. Can I log into his account as him and do a design and get a price or should he send me as a 'customer' of his into Howdens and let them do a design and then send the price to him. Obviously my dad won't be charging me any profit and will let me have items as trade prices, e.g. what Howdens charge him and I'm presuming they will be a lot cheaper than the prices we would get just going in without any discount but I don't know just how discounted they are!.
  7. We have the TP link, we found if far easier to set up and it works great and we have WiFi all through the house now. Even got my parents a whole set up for their home/business when the main router is some 400m away in a separate building as the signal was so poor in the house streaming was impossible. It's a full signal now. If only we could get something similar for our mobile signal. It's fine if we have WiFi in the house as we can use wi-fi calling but if the power goes, no signal and outside the house no signal either.
  8. @Nickfromwales exactly which bit do you mean? You can see here the build up of silicone and where it's run under the skirting This is the inside: How on earth do the damn screens come off?!?
  9. Oh hell, I'll have to look into taking it all apart what a nightmare.
  10. We have both and I use the overhead when I'm washing my hair and the handheld when I'm not.
  11. I've got one of those fancy kits from Amazon and I am going to be removing the sealant on our walk in shower and redoing it as we have noticed water leaks out of the corner onto our bathroom floor which must be happening between the tray and glass screen as we have shower wall panelling. Can anyone point me in the direction of a helpful YouTube video or similar on how to seal a walk in shower or if there is a particular knack to getting it right to make sure it doesn't leak again! Ta
  12. The one chucked on the chair - that would be me 😁 I'm not allowed to hang stuff up as apparently I put it in the wrong place and there is a 'system'.
  13. That's between us - you can never have too many! I confess we are still sorting through some things and there's probably at least 3-4 that need to go - and we can buy new ones 😁
  14. We have got ourselves organised now finally! It's amazing! Accessed from our bedroom.... (Decorating needs to be done/redone next year)! VID_20211118_173929.mp4
  15. I confess this is for our boat as we are fitting a whale gulper pump in our bathroom. We need some 19mm hose and we have been advised to use the type with a wire spiral inside which won't collapse under the draw of the intake side of the pump Similar to this: https://www.midlandchandlers.co.uk/products/hose-suction-green-3-4-id-per-metre-ah-001 Does anyone know of anything like this I can get online (the chandler's isn't local).
