  1. The reason I asked the question is that just recently in my family 3 combi gas boilers have been playing up. In fact my lads boiler has only been in for 3 years and it sounds as though it's the "expansion vessel " as he needs to top up the water pressure regularly. My brother and daughter have had the same problem. It doesn't seem that the boilers are made to last so are the electric boilers any more reliable ?
  2. My gas boiler is an old one, we have been in this house 30 years and it wasn't new looking then. I have heard that after 2025 gas boilers will not be fitted to new builds? Not wanting to hijack Steve B's combi thread, has anyone any experience of an electric boiler that can run hot water and radiators?
  3. I've got an old stihl strimmer that I've had 7 years and a stihl chainsaw that I've had about 5 years. They both run on supermarkets petrol and standard 2 stroke oil and I have never drained them. They don't take a deal of starting when I want to use them.
  4. 😇😇😇😇😁😁😁👍👍👍
  5. Dunno about new skill more luck than judgement to be honest. Best thing my granddaughter is over the moon that its repaired, whatever it is. Thanks, I am chuffed 👍👍👍
  6. To be honest I was very careful and only got my finger warm but not burnt 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣👍👍👍👍
  7. Meant to say, thanks to everyone for your advice 👍👍👍
  8. Considering the soldering iron is as thick as a cricket bat, the solder as thick as a pencil, me being as thick as a brick I am extremely pleased that I got it working.
  9. It is you are right, I believe it's that light for taking Tik Tok videos, it has a phone holder on too. ps I got your pm earlier, I will ask her if you can borrow it once it's repaired 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
  10. It is 👍👍 Thanks, I am hoping to borrow an iron, some flux and solder and have a go myself 🤫🤫
  11. I will have a look on YouTube thanks, I hope to borrow a soldering iron. The thing is if I was 25 I would buy one because there's a good chance I would use it again. But I have not needed one until now and not likely to need one again so may as well borrow one 🤣
  12. Thanks for the offer that's very good of you if I get stuck 👍👍
  13. I have been tasked to try and repair the item below by attaching the three wires black, red and white. I am not really sure what the item is but my granddaughter has been rough with it, in her defence it only looks to have been protected by silicone coming through the black metal bit. I don't have a soldering iron or solder, is there any way that I can attach these wires successfully please?
