When we turn our taps on and off the plumbing makes a noise,

When we turn our taps on and off the plumbing makes a noise, like a valve being opened and closed. It is quite noticeable when the washing machine is on, like a sort of loud clicking. We live in a old house (Edwardian) and I just thought it was normal but I have read something about pressure problems and water hammer, do you think it sounds like something I should get a plumber to look at? Thanks for your advice.

My central heating system (radiators) badly sludged. Plumber

My central heating system (radiators) badly sludged. Plumber has pressure flushed and now put Flomasta Cleaner (Screwfix ? ) into system. Says run heating system hot continuously for 5 days ! He will then come back flush and put in Inhibitor. I'm concerned. Is it safe to leave cleaner in system for 5 days ? Is it necessary to run heating for 5 days ?Magnates Pro also fitted.

The radiator in my conservatory stopped working last week.

The radiator in my conservatory stopped working last week. All other rads hot. In pipe by TRV is hot. Drained rad to change trv. Lockshied is open as I drained it from that side past the Lockshied. Trv was OK but unusually not stuck closed but actually wouldn't close all the way. Physically blew through the rad, all OK. Changed trv. Reconnected, pressured up system and bled rad. Still not heating up. Changed every rad in the house to Mon setting on trvs. No change. Don't know where to go from here.

I've just had a smart meter fitted and now my Danfoss RX1

Hello - I've just had a smart meter fitted and now my Danfoss RX1 thermostat appears to have stopped working. There are no lights on the receiver and the thermostat is showing 0F. I've tried holding the LEARN button down, which doesn't change the 0F display, then pressing the PROG and CH1 buttons together - the green light does flash but nothing else happens. Boiler seems fine and I do have hot water, just no CH.

My bath is starting to show signs of wear - if the bath was

My bath is starting to show signs of wear - if the bath was removed in order to replace it it would cause a few problems as the tiling goes from ceiling to skirting boards or to the bath's rim (on three sides).... I am certain that many tiles would be broken and I cannot get any more?............. I know that baths etc can be 'dipped' in order to re-coat the bath's enamel, however, can this be done while the bath is still in situ ie, as it now in my bathroom and if so where can I find a company who could 'dip' my bath and how much would it cost? Many thanks
