  1. Someone has discovered she can’t do the washing up and then expect a cup of tea 😂
  2. I get a similar issue with safari on my iPhone when using Twitter. Doesn’t happen for weeks, then every couple of days it won’t load Twitter unless I use a private browser. Then after a day or so normal safari works. Like Zoo here I should probably be using the relevant app instead of a browser. I don’t “fix” the problem because it’s annoying to lose the browsing history.
  3. If you read the blurb on the blank private browsing page, it’s telling you that private browsing is like using a blank slate every time you access a page and it doesn’t remember any info afterwards. That it works this way tells us there’s nothing fundamentally wrong with safari or the iPad. Just that there something in the information it has stored that is causing a temporary conflict when you access YouTube. You should try clearing the cookies to see if that helps use YouTube on the normal safari page. i would suggest you create an Apple ID at some point soon as this will allow you to use the iPad properly. You’ll likely want to install other apps and at the very least you will need to update the apps you have and the operating system in due course.
  4. the google thing is ok, I was trying to gauge what you did have. Not a lot by the sounds of it. Did the YouTube video work ok in the private window? Plain yes or no?
  5. something to do tomorrow 😆 Do you have a google account? Gmail? Android smartphone?
  6. Back to first problem, forget the Apple ID thing. In safari, too right click on the icon I’m showing below. Then select “Private” then click + for a new page. The browser address bar should be black. Go to YouTube and try the video again on this page.
  7. Ok so there’s no one logged in and by the sounds of it, you don’t have an Apple account. I think if you go to sign in it will give you an option to create an Apple ID which will at least allow you to manage the iPad. Have you put anything on there yet you don’t want to lose? Have you set up the email client or anything?
  8. if you go to settings, what does it say?
  9. You do have an Apple account to manage the iPad don’t you? In whose name is the iPad running?
  10. Are you watching YouTube in the safari browser? Have you tried to watch it in a private browsing safari page? If not can you try it and see if it happens the same?
  11. You and @Bitpipe have been ok, so fingers crossed, eh?
  12. Mine is bigger than yours (and the Quooker)
  13. I'll have a play with the current fittings to see what the normal flow is when running singly and double. Layout etc, won't be ideal but there are no issues running a single shower. I don't think there's anything wrong, its just wanting 2 good flow showers simultaneously is beyond a standard capability.
  14. No idea what the flows are. I think I will need to measure them and explain to the wife where we are with current flow and max potential flow with a 12l/min limit.
  15. Just looking up some pumps, they themselves are limited to 12m/min? https://www.anchorpumps.com/blog/buying-home-booster-pump-complete-guide/ https://www.bathroomsandshowersdirect.co.uk/mains-pumps/mains-pumps/salamander-homeboost-pump?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIm4qdj6_U7AIVVOvtCh0JMwEiEAQYAiABEgIwgPD_BwE So you could legally fit one of these? The question then, is whether that 12litre would provide enough of a increase in performance? And if this is worth the effort?
