  1. Hi I made a liner out of stainless steel mesh and also fitted it in the vent cover over some very fine mesh so I can take the vent off and clean all the spiders webs out while keeping all the insects out , hope you can see in the picture , I made these fly screen out of a normal pull roller blind , I took the material off and replaced it with fine mesh drilled out some small holes 10mm and stuck some magnets in the wood that runs through the bottom of the blinds, then stuck two metal strips for the magnets to stick to , this is to stop the blind from swinging out

    My reflex uses about 30 ltrs a week ( 24/7 ) on various settings mainly low , I have a dedicated 136 ltr ( 30 gallons ) tank so I can go 4 weeks in between fill up , defiantly one of the best things We did having one fitted
  10. Finally after 5 years of kicking water down the waste and balancing on one leg I have replaced the shower tray and enclosure, it has been pxxxing us off since day one the shower tray outlet was at the front of the tray hence balancing on one leg to kick the water down the waste, the waste is now where it should of been in the first place at the rear of the tray, also the new shower enclosure has nano self cleaning glass and it actually does my better half is over the moon with it , this is the old tray 2nd picture is the old shower 3rd picture the new enclosure & tray

  18. Some on eBay £1 each plus postage , I have filed mine with expanding foam to stiffen them up
  19. Just seen this on Facebook I really can not believe what he is trying do make up your own minds
  20. Received my renewal quote for narrow boat and contents of towergate they quoted £439.29 last year it was £454 . So I had a ring round something I hate doing, first was G J W £90.000 boat £5,000 contents £150 excess for boat £50 for contents £387 a better policy as no claims bonus protected , next was nautical the same cover as G J W but only £350 both G J W & Nautical are Agreed value towergate wasn't, so a phoned towergate to ask them for a better quote they came back with £371 so I told them I would not be uesing them and told them if they had quoted me £371 in the first place I would have stayed with them , so it pays to shop around, hope this is some use for some one
