Install Magnaclean

  • Begin by starting a drain on your central heating, as well as your expansion tank and your plug-off feeds. Let the system’s pressure be totally released. Now, start making markings on sections. You will make a 110mm section for a 22mm unit, and a 195mm section for a 28mm unit. This is fairly simple to do, and again look for professional help if you need it.
  • This is super important – make sure that you always leave a gap of around 250mm between the bottom of the central heating system and the top of the Magnaclean canister. This will make it much easier for taking off and cleaning out for servicing down the line.
  • Using cutters, remove the pipework section that you need to add in your Magnaclean system. This should be fairly easy to spot where it should be,

Properly Maintain Ponds

  • Protect your fish. If you have any fish in your pond, they need to be removed safely and carefully before you can begin cleaning.

Successful Wheelchair Ramp Installation

Higher entrances require longer ramps. Once you get steeper than a 9.5-degree slope, the incline is no longer safe for an occupied scooter or wheelchair. Ramp installation experts suggest a 4.8-degree slope for maximum safety.

To reach a 4.8-degree slope, the height of your staircase in inches is directly related to the length of your ramp in feet. For instance, if you have two 5-inch stairs – a total of 10 inches – you can expect to have a slope that is 10 feet long.

As you can imagine, higher staircases necessitate longer runways. You may find that your slope needs to wrap around the house or go in a zigzag pattern rather than a straight line. What if you have a small front yard and four 5-inch stairs leading to your front door? Somehow, 20 feet of runway needs … Read the rest


Install A Tin Roof

Once you have these things, you should select the type of tin roof that you want. There are two main types that you can choose: an R-panel or V-crimp style. The difference between the two is that an R-panel requires you to use 5/16 inch lap screws while a V-crimp doesn’t use screws.

For you to make the decision you need to consult your roofer. You can also make the decision depending on your budget.

After making the decision you should measure the length and width of your roof so that you are able to determine the amount of edging needed. When taking the measurements you should add two to four inches for the overhang. If you need to deflect rainwater, you should add a slightly larger overhang at the door.

Before you install the tin roof you should remove … Read the rest
