    Water Softeners drinking softened water

    The Limescale we had in the kettle has almost disappeared after approx. 2 weeks. I some times wonder if my bones and joints are scaled up :)

    Water Softeners drinking softened water

    As far as I’m aware the salt is only used to reverse flush the balls that capture the hardness so unless you consume the very first water after a replenish it should be relatively salt free.

    Water Softeners drinking softened water

What are opinions/knowledge of using the treated water for drinking & cooking etc. Cant say it tastes any different to me but the wife thinks it does and...

    Formica

    Change of plan the delivery cost for one sheet of Formica is high, If I was to paint some 18mm MDF Red what would be the best paint and would it be a good idea to finish with a protective varnish to make it more hard wearing, I have used Bedec paint before that was quite good and Osmo (on bare wood)

    Air line

    Looked at Tool station pipe and fittings apart from colour are they any different from the water ones do you know? Also is there a calc for diameter V pipe length (I wonder if it the same as pressure drop for gas) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Air line

    I do picture framing in a room in my bungalow and it has come to the point that I need a air supply for a underpinner and staple gun etc. In the room I work in, You can buy silent compressors but they are expensive and space is a premium. I already own a fairly powerful compressor that is in my...

    Clarify insulation

    What I did Put Roofing batons full length on rafters for the 75mm Celotex to but up to leaving a 50mm air gap above, same full lengths under Celotex to hold it up, I have left the Celotex approximately 40mm short from butting up against the wall to provide air flow, the other end is open in to...

    Celotex floor

    Well here’s what I did: On further examination there was a raised area of approximately 12mm in height the length of the garage about 350mm wide where at some time in the past a new drain had been laid. Material I already had DPC 300 gauge and several 8x4 sheets of 25mm polystyrene. So instead...

    Celotex floor

    I have a big roll of DMP 4x25M would there be any advantages to putting some down before the Celotex then some more on the Celotex before the 22mm chipboard? I doubt very much that the existing garage floor has a DPM fitted already. Also I assume I am ok to use heavy gauge DPM instead of a...
