    Many thanks. I'll have a look at it.

    The All New Hot Water Thread

    As far as I recall when Harris came out that time, they just switched on something/opened up something and it was business as usual. The hot water has gone again. Also, the immersion is not heating the water. Central heating is working fine. Could somebody talk me through all the things I...

    is there a need for a Doctor / GP in Rathbourne?

    You might be better off posting on www.rathborne.net. There's a lot more activity there. Personally, I think a GP practice would do great business in that vacant unit beside Superquinn.

    Rust and leak in radiator

    The radiator in my living room in my living room appears to have developed a bit of a leak at the base below the control knob. There is also a lot of rust there. From what I can see from googling, this looks as if it could be a big job, perhaps involving the radiator being replaced. My other...

    Cold water tap in kitchen.

    Is water fully restored? Is it safe to use washing machine/dishwater/water heating/central heating? Any precautions I should take?

    Cold water tap in kitchen.

    There's a problem with a pump or something. Wyse is dealing with it at the moment. Top tip: Six 1.5l bottles of Norwegian glacier water (Isklar) costs EU3.00 in Superquinn. This is better value than the big 5l container water at EU2.59. Also Johnson baby wipes are reduced to EU1.39...

    Geisha & Canal Bar

    I'd be more worried about annoying local residents.

    No reply from Wyse after hours number

    The fees pay for more than Wyse. They cover everything else involved in the day-to-day running and maintenance of the buildings. Everyone is under an obligation to pay the fees.

    No reply from Wyse after hours number

    There is no lighting in the common areas of at least one of the cores in The Waxworks. Even more worryingly, the fire detector system is also down. There is no response from Wyse's emergency number. The second day over the Christmas there has been no response. Does anybody know how they are...

    Cablewatch - Additional Channels

    I'm still glad I didn't go with Cablewatch. It would infuriate me to have to pay for such a poor service. You can manage pretty well with rabbit's ears for the four "home" channels, BBC/ITV players and downloads for everything else.

    Smoke detectors

    Of course, a second one has gone on me now, the one in the kitchen and it's different (even fiddlier) than the one in the hall. I bought new batteries for both but have had difficulty putting them back up again. They are incredibly fiddly (like the light fittings). I gave up in despair as...

    Smoke detectors

    Thanks for that. Managed to get it down and battery in. But I'm not sure it's connected properly as no green light is showing. Will have another go at it.

    Smoke detectors

    Smoke alarm in hall is beeping, so the battery obviously needs to be changed. This is the one I have. I gather that I don't need a screwdriver to get the top off but I'm meeting with some resistance and don't want to force it. Does it twist off or pull off? Does a cover come off or does...
