Re: HOUSEHOLD TIPS NOT FOUND IN WOMAN'S WEEKLY

Re: HOUSEHOLD TIPS NOT FOUND IN WOMAN'S WEEKLY

We do, of course, have buildings insurance in case the house burns down but the premium is low because we've never had to call on it - these people calling their insurance company will have the final insult of having to pay a higher premium after they've gone through all that trouble.

Spent the last 2 hours replacing the nsf electric window register on the car. An interesting project made easier by watching a Youtube video first. The cable had corroded and snapped about 6 months ago.

Re: Borehole at Lower Burnt Hilĺ.

No pump, no water Kev. We do have two storage tanks that supply two hot water cylinders and there is a large cold water storage tank out in the barn. Col has started on the wiring today and it will be added to the "emergency" battery system along with the central heating and the tv. We need to buy ...

Col is pondering whether to add it to the circuit which will run on batteries if necessary.
How long would your water last without power to the pump?

I'm confused (I think). I'm watching Wimbledon and it's 2.10pm in London but the OG time says 1.10pm. Is the site not bothering to change it?
It's OK, I can handle it haha, but it's just a bit weird.
You have to change to BST in your OG settings...

Octopus recommend waiting for SMET 2 if you don't already have them. I have SMET 1 and will wait to see what pans out.
There are very few with SMET 2 at the moment and those are at the testing phase. It'll all come together soon :-)

Re: ENERGY MATTERS

One temporary downer is that I'm doing meter readings again. Not a biggie, Octopus are waiting for the 2nd generation universal smart meter rollout before changing meters, should be later this year. Plans are afoot to enable communication to all smart meters, SMET1 and 2, to the central data centre...
