  1. I've put in two new build windows, two replacement windows and 3 doors, all upvc. The windows were new and the doors all secondhand. Limited experience then but I'd go for Compriband or Illbrück equivalent tape every time over foam. If I had to use foam then Illbrück FM330 over anything else. I'd really urge you to watch White Gold about how not to fit "double glazing". It's on Netflix.
  2. Why do you always have to make it about you?
  3. You like a gadget, buy a volt stick: https://www.screwfix.com/p/fluke-ac-non-contact-voltage-detector-pen-1000v-ac/85949
  4. I think Flexi Tap Tales would have been a better thread title.
  5. The 100mA RCD at the house end, feeding the swa to the garden room needs to be time delayed to allow for selectivity. I've done this on a TT system but also incorporated a switched fused for overcurrent protection. I took one of these: https://www.internet-electrical.co.uk/switchgear/switchfuses/lewden-single-phase-switchfuse/lewden-fs6380100-white-metal-single-phase-switch-fuse-with-63a-80a-100a-fuses-for-domestic-installations-ip40-100a?gad_source=1&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI59qb_Lq5hAMVuJlQBh0q-wetEAQYASABEgKcr_D_BwE The swapped out the DP isolator for one of these: https://www.ledbulbs.co.uk/products/lewden-100a-100ma-2p-2-module-rccb-100-100-2sa?variant=39691026628666&gad_source=1&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI2IPbuLu5hAMVl5tQBh2QSgQOEAQYAiABEgJUV_D_BwE The SWA goes from their to the new consumer unit in the outbuilding.
  6. Measure the OD of the pipe with a Vernier and report back.
  7. Should do. Maybe use flexible plaster filler that comes in a tube instead of Easifill.
  8. A proper bodger just cuts the foam level and paints it: Wallpaper over the foam if you want to do it properly... 😉
  9. Can't see what's wrong with foam! 😉
