  1. Mysterious object - what is it?

    It's a check valve which allows water to only flow one way. Like a non return valve but Check Valves operate in a different way but perform the same job.
  2. Electric set up advice

    Have a read of this: https://www.victronenergy.com/generatortest Click on: Generator Test Report
  3. Gas connections

    Not in gas though.
  4. Gas connections

    Time served City and Guilds/NVQ apprenticeship or a 1 week course?
  5. Electric set up advice

    Will you have shore power available if so how about a battery charger or combined inverter/charger (multiplus ) ? Amount of solar will depend on your energy use and budget. People with more knowledge than me will be along soon to help you with that I'm sure. That solar kit looks expensive too me an equivalent setup from bimble is a lot cheaper http://www.bimblesolar.com/offgrid/12v/175w-dualbatt-pwm-kit or a bigger panel with a mppt controller http://www.bimblesolar.com/offgrid/12v/260W-kit-mppt-mounting?sort=p.price&order=ASC&limit=75 But work out what you need first as you may wish to add panels later etc.
  6. Basically the cooker uses the flame to complete an electrical circuit to sense when the gas is lit and stop sparking ( Flame rectification ) Leisure where on the right track as an electrode and lead normally fixes this cheaply. You are now onto the possibility of it being the igniter control box which is probably expensive. An earth fault on the appliance or wiring of the boat. The cooker may not be playing nice with the Inverter assuming the cooker is 240vac. Maybe check the plug or spur is wired correctly for starters.
  7. 3 inch tongue and groove

    Try these people: http://www.englishwoodlandstimber.co.uk/stocklist-coming-soon/ http://www.englishwoodlandstimber.co.uk/timber-services/profiles-moulding-timber/ You can buy packs of wood and they will run it off to your requirements. Tongue and groove, beading, trim, door frames etc. Great as it all matches and the pack wood price can work out cheaper and with the machining it's very competitive. Not used them myself but they have been recommended to me buy a few chippies.
  8. Instant gas heater

    They use the 240v for the fan so you are able to have a 4/5" round flue. You can get balanced flued water heaters that have no fan and require no electric to run but they have big square through the wall flues and fitting them on a boat would be difficult and impractical. The Bss might also be a problem. Chaffoteaux & maury and main used to make these but I'm not sure if they still do. Good luck
  9. Make sure that the time is set on the clock and it is set to manual. http://downloads.beko.co.uk/bekoupload/manuals/GRB6GV.pdf
  10. Unisolar PV & Mixing types of solar panels

    These the ones?? http://www.buypvdirect.co.uk/PV_Panels/Panasonic%20PAN-240%20HIT http://www.buypvdirect.co.uk/PV_Panels?product_id=273 They look nice and this guy has fitted them https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0MMPakvfZ0&t=339s
  11. shower enclosure

    How about buying some hinges and getting the glass cut to size or from a wooden template if it's an odd size. https://www.kerolhardware.co.uk/wall-mounted-shower-door-hinges.html
  12. You can use a HepVO waste Valve if you want to keep a trap and save space. Just remember to buy the elbow for a horizontal installation.
  13. How about using a thermal store? Would have the advantages of bringing all the heat sources together, takes car of the vent,feed and expansion of the solid fuel, diesel heater and rad circuit. Another benefit would be that you could do away with the heat dump and pump for the solid fuel.
  14. Delivery Drones - what's the point?

    Wages, Amazon and a lot of other big companies are trying to automate as much as possible. Have a look at an Amzon warehouse robot: Driverless cars, just think of the money that could save the likes of Uber etc
