    Valve Amp help

    Hi All I’m after some advice. I believe my step dad built this valve amp and after he passed away I inherited it along with other items.

    Shower Mixer Valve Leak

    Hi All Came home to a worst nightmare scenario (relatively) where ceilings were dripping with water from above. Luckily not the pipes, but managed to isolate the issue to the shower valve mixer. Question is, how do I take the middle bit out - that's where the waters streaming out? Does it need...
