Starting to think about external door thresholds as hopefully (weather permitting) I'll be starting my walls next week. Am I right in saying that flush external door thresholds can only be done on sliding or external opening doors? Or am I missing something on a way to have external doors opening inwards with a flush threshold? Cheers Vijay
I recon we have a case of sludge flake - and this isn't the breakfast cereal type of flake either. Help us sort it out, please. We've drained the system down twice now, and radiator performance is at best patchy. So next weekend, we're determined to Drain down Take the rads off and flush them and do our best to flush the 'tubes'.... and that's where we'd like some help When the system is heated by the fire, and the pump is circulating hot water, you can feel the change (drop) in temperature where the wider pipe meets the narrow one. We can hear little pairs of castanets rattling in the pipe (together with entrained air from a leaky valve). Once you take the rads off and clean them out, how do you clean out the small bore pipe?
Here's one I should have done earlier, I know. But we are where we are. A drain down depends on gravity doesn't it? So all the piping that's below the level of the drain cock level (no rads have drain points) will still be full. So - just a thought - what if I turn the circulation pump on for a minute or two to 'force' the bottom few centimeters of water out? Switching the pump on for a minute or so, will I knacker the pump? Any Welsh plumbers on the board will be most welcome to answer.
