    Default Stripping (update)

    Update..............all got finished friday........this was after a minor disaster !!!!!!!!! when after tilting the radiator bk up after stripping behind it ...the blooming elbow joint from the down pipe decided to pop ...............HELP HELP HELP!!!!!!!!!!!! frigging water gushed out,as I was on my own I managed to some how jam the elbow bk up into the pipe with my foot while getting the rad to hook bk on ,so as it was now just a trickle rather than a gushing,I got up into the loft and tied up the header tank .then set about jambing the elbow on a bit more....PHEW!!!!!!!!
    End result plumber m8 managed to get around later and capped off for me,while he was there got him to drain down system and remove the other Rads ..


    Any ways I got 3 quotes tor the plastering ...£430......£450................................. .................................................. .................................................
    .................................................. .........................
    .................................................. ........................
    and finally £800 but he was very good (he told me) .

    So opted for the £450 as he can start thursday ..so ive got to twiddle my thumbs for a few days now .


    And oh yeah we went out and bought a new carpet as she didn't like the idea of the green carpet with the wall colouring weve gone for .............so I didn't get shouted at toooooooooo much lol
