Hand Made in the UK Radiators by Bard & Brazier

Now so Britsh firms put made in the UK and what they mean is that parts made abroad

are assembled in the UK and this gives them the ability to say made in the UK

But as you can see from the picture with Bard & Brazier, they really are made here.

Hand welded and finished by men and women in the Midlands.... fantastic!!

Macerators, what are they good for, absolutely nothing

Macerators, what are they good for, absolutely nothing (you have to imagine being sung like the song war)

We don`t sell these things and we have lost customers because of it.

We know the advantages.....you can have a toilet anywhere in your house.

But we are a local compnay and when things go wrong customers come to our shop.

We don`t want people who have been woken up at 2am with gurgling noises,

or have had to dig up their bathroom to unblock a pipe venting their frustatrations at us.

Personally i have told friends not to put these in as they will regret it and they are always pissed off at me.

But years later they always say they should of listened to me.

They are a great idea and if used well and resposiably and regually serviced they can work well.

But you only need one tampon or too much toilet paper and you have got a potential flood.

What are Panel Valves in a Bathroom

Read entire post: What are Panel Valves in a Bathroom

Panel Valves are controls that often control the hot and cold water feeds to an exofil bath filler or a bath spout.

These are are normally 3/4" as that allows a quicker flow of water to get to your filler/spout.

As they are quite simple devices they tend not to need high pressure to operate them and so therefore,

can get a good flow of water to your bath compared to a shower valve.

the other advantage is that you can place them where you want.

So you may want them at different posistions on the bath or a tiled shelf nearby.

The give you flexibilty with the function of your bath and done well can add to to the general design.

Standpipes or shrouds? that is the question

Read entire post: Standpipes or shrouds? that is the question

What is the difference between bath shrouds and standpipes?

Well they both look the same but standpipes take the water up to the bath shower mixer tap

Where as shrouds just cover your pipes.

The other difference is the price with standpipes being much more expensive.

Which one is better for getting the best pressure to your taps?

Well you will have to ask your plumber before purchasing them,

as there is a chance that saving money will mean less pressure to your bath taps.

this all depends on the water pressure that you have and also the flow rate of your water.

90mm Brushed Brass Shower Tray Waste in the UK

Read entire post: 90mm Brushed Brass Shower Tray Waste in the UK

90mm Brushed Brass Shower Tray Waste in the UK

Well these are kind of like hens teeth as they are very hard to find in stock anywhere

The one you can see in the picture is the only one that we know of thats in stock in the UK at the moment.

The problem is is that these are all imported on a just in time basis.

So where demand for a product is high and the shipping time is very long (as it is at the moment),

then that is the perfect storm for having no stock.

As a shower tray waste is crucial to a build, i would advise if they are out of stock then to buy

a different colour finish waste from the same brand and also buy the brushed brass one from the same range,

and swap over the plates when they arrive(checking first that they will swap over).

I know you are buying 2 wastes but are you going to delay your build for 4 months because of that?
