  2. I think my coffee machine uses 90A, so it wouldn't take much to find something quite normal that uses over 100A for a short time.

  4. I have an instant gas water heater and the shower wouldn't trigger it. I found out how to increase the water pump pressure and gradually increased it until it would trigger.
  5. Never heard of that, (habitual), and am now wondering what it actually means, and whether a house could be made "not habitual" between tenancies? What makes a residential mooring between tenants "not habitual"?
  6. With a house between tenants, the owner/landlord pays the council tax...... I'd have an educated guess that the same applies to a mooring?
  7. IMHO The OP was confusing. They are actually asking about fuel, not fires.
  8. I don't think they come more pragmatic as Guy Holding at Portland Basin Marina: http://www.portlandbasinmarina.co.uk/
  9. Virgin Media now own O2 so their sims are now O2..... mine has been O2 since mid last year.
  10. In 2 x BSS inspections, I have been told that ventilation is advisory not mandatory, so it wouldn't/shouldn't be a fail.
  11. I'd buy this one in 2x2 format, (it's a bit cheaper on Amazon). I'm not sure what 4x4 adds at the moment? https://www.solwise.co.uk/5G-XPOL-1
  12. I have an old Huawei router that runs off USB using a cable to convert the 5v to 12v. My aerial is the Poynting 4g XPOL. The router came free with a Three contract a few years ago. It's currently got an O2 sim which is part of our Virgin Media package. If I was starting g now, I'd get a 5g router, which seem to be around £250 and a Poynting 5g XPOL antenna for around £90. I can't see what the Maxview could do better, apart from connect to ordinary WiFi, so it seems like an expensive solution to buying a router and external aerial. Having said that, I don't see how it would be better or worse on a boat..... it does the same job on both boats and RVs.
  13. That's got absolutely nothing to do with Whilton and fake surveys, which was the assertion questioned, and you know it. As has been intimated, you find one example of something going wrong, and used it to promote doom and gloom, and tar the whole world with that brush.
  14. I've tried a search, but only find the one example that you keep repeating. It's some coincidence that a few here can only recall or find the one example, whereas you insist there are many more, yet refuse to provide the info/links. Come on Alan.... this is the kind of thing you would have saved for a simple cut and paste.
  15. You seem to be saying that Craig Allen is a surveyor who is happy to take bribes from Whilton? I can only recall the one well used example that you use..... are there actually more than this?
  16. After 30 years sailing, when bought my own seagoing boat in 2006, I did the RYA diesel engine course and, to give my wife a gentle intro to boat handling, we did did the Helmsmans course. Bothe served us well, and I can recommend them. The next most useful thing would be a knowledge of how batteries and charging sources work. Other than that, I learned things as they went wrong. YouTube videos are very useful, as is this forum, as long as you explain your issue, and ignore the curmudgeonly responses that often ensue from the usual suspects.

  19. Why can't you wait. Is there a deadline for you to get somewhere?
  20. He is saying you should do nothing now, and wait until later in the year when it is warmer and dryer. I'd be suspicious of a yard suggesting/agreeing the work is done in February.
  21. Maybe she doesn't "think" she is on the property ladder. In the short article linked, the headline states this, but the body of the article doesn't. I haven't watched her videos, so it is possible she may confirm what the headline says but, other than that, it is only the writer who thinks that.
  22. I'm not disagreeing with either of those. In fact they kind of make my point, which is that government should be building all of these houses they keep telling us we need, and promising us we will get.
  23. Who exactly do you mean when you say "the BTL landlord parasite scum"?
  24. We have many basic needs, but the providers of these needs are not expected to provide them for free if someone doesn't have the means to pay. Your suggestion would have food. heat, clothing, (fags, sky TV etc.... ), provided for free by the suppliers - as you well know, it aint gonna happen is it!? This is why we have a welfare state, where people of lesser means are provided for out of taxes. Back to property: Of course, if private landlords were required to provide their properties for free, for life, there would be no landlords, and you would get your wish that we all only own one property. However, this leads back to there being nowhere for those needing/wanting to rent to live..... unless government provides all of the property required by the rental market, which is something you can wish for, but is not gonna happen.
