  1. Blocks for Tree Ring

    @simoh1490 hello again. I was going to suggest the pigment thing and something else, no one will agree with. I saw at Global House (this one's at Roiet), on display they have this render stuff that's like a colour pigment. Looks great on the display. Buy some 7.5 cm or 10 cm white aerated blocks and render them with your pigment colour choice. The blocks are strong, easy to cut and shape and easy to lay with glue and no mortar joint. Buy a couple, render them and see. Don't worry about all the negativity about these blocks not being strong, absorbing water etc. I'll rip out and take a couple of pics. of places I've used them. shows their strength.

  2. ct scan

    A long time ago I had a dye injection for a back scan, was told to go sit down in the waiting room and broke out into a horrible sneezing coughing fit, could hardly breathe. Now I think they know a bit more. It's like aspirin, I went for my second back operation full of aspirin. Had all these bottles and tubes in me after and the surgeon said they couldn't stop the bleeding. Now they know a bit better. Used to be some butchers around back then.

  5. Low Water Pressure

    [email protected] we keep on meeting on different threads. I have a non return valve between my pool pump and the filter. 2" pipe into a male thread connector into the female NRV. Both sides of the connector NRV leak, like annoying drops every minute or so. I've removed and re- wound white tape 2 times already and did a no no by spanner tightening the connector, but it still leaks. Going to try your way. So I liberally apply the RTV then do up the connector? Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
  6. Can anyone translate this for me

    I suppose if it is cyanide then it would fix the problem forever.[emoji3] Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
  7. Roof / attic ventilation fan

    The addition of the two layered roof has stopped the hot sun hitting the house and improved the coolness inside. We have a reflective barrier and cavity walls, but in the hot season the outside walls were hot and just touchable, but inside still cool, but by 5 pm the house was heating up and some of that stored heat was still there in the mornings. While I've got some other insulation things to do, stopping the sun hit that part of the house was a good call. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk

  9. New roof advice

    Hi simoh1490, yeah the metal roof mob let her down, so she went back to the newer style old tiles. I think fibrocement like before. I can't see how you successfully screw the metal to the fibrocement or non metal tiles without using some sealant. The builders will probably know, as you say. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
  10. Nice project there Crossy. Funny I was looking at these last week with the thought of making up a house heat sensor display, bought on by Sheryl's house roof removal and insulation upgrade. Maybe you can beat me to it, as your brain still works. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
  11. Blocks for Tree Ring

    If you look along the roadside you see these type of stone/ brick/ block places. If you have an angle grinder with the right blades, one for cutting the block and one for trimming the block, no problems. Any good tiler can trim the blocks. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
  12. Roof / attic ventilation fan

    Exactly. You have to stop the sun hitting the house. Bit late after it hits the house, but all these insulation bits and pieces work. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk

  14. New roof advice

    Here's some pics.I just took. 1. Have the metal roofing cut to size screwed on and siliconed underneath. Between the roof and veranda tiles. 2. Valley drain. 3. Stop bird windows on the veranda. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
  15. New roof advice

    Yes good idea simoh1490. I did the same with some metal roofing, where the veranda tiles meet the roof trusses tiles. It was bent at 90 degrees and the top bit cut to the waved shape of the tiles and the bottom flat bit shaped over the tiles. I used those screws for the top bit and siliconed the bottom bit as it was sticking up a bit and would not lay properly on the tiles. It has worked well with no prob. but only 4 years.
