  1. I am buying a property and a survey has shown that the solid ground floor (likely concrete slab) is damp in some parts and is also uneven. Recommendation is that the floor is re-laid with a damp proof membrane (as a DPM would not originally have been installed).The affected rooms are a small kitchen and lounge. Have been quoted £3300+VAT to include taking up kitchen and lounge floor, re-hardcoring them, lay a damp proof membrane and insulate with a 75mm finish (includes skip hire).I’m wondering if there is a cheaper way of doing it. For example, lay membrane over existing concrete subfloor and screed over that? Or any other alternative?Thanks!
  2. and i am looking for a quick response
  3. We are going to be at the Yacht Club from January 6th-11th and received word from Disney that their super cool pool was being renovated and that "parts" of it would be closed. Does anyone have any more detailed input as to how much will be "down"??? Thanks!
  4. Hello, new member here just getting my toes wet with solar. We just had a 24' above ground pool installed and with no power on that side of our property, I set it up with a DC pool pump connected to (2) Jinko JKM270PP-60 270w panels, wired series & ground mounted near the pool. Setup works great, kicks on at sunrise and off at sunset with no timer needed.Where I need some insight is the 40w/120v Salt Water Generator for the pool. I currently have a 200ft extension cord running out to the pool area for the SWG, which runs 18hrs per day but needs power 24/7.I have a 3rd matching 270w panel (pump ran too fast for my sand filter on 3 panels) that I'd like to hookup to my EPEVER Tracer 3210AN charger controller and battery bank to get the SWG off grid as well.I'm stumped on trying to determine A) 12v or 24v battery bank? And B) I assuming I need to account for how much power the inverter itself draws as well?Thanks in advance for any/all insight!
  5. Can anyone recommend a painter that does a good job on exteriors? Old paint will obviously need to be prepped, and some spots will need to be scraped down and filled to make it look decent prior to painting.Brick house, no siding, single story, 1683 sq ft, trim and eaves only. I'm in the middle of a complete yard renovation, and complete bathroom reno. No time, or patience to do the work right myself on the exterior paint.
