Homes On Show - Save My Bathroom

Behind every job there is a story. This one starts with a homeowner, and a vision to renovate her bathroom from an outdated 1970’s relic to a modern, clean, and functional bathroom. The Dilemma The story starts with Joanne and her first tradie, a referral from a friend. The tradie seemed great. The homeowner and the tradie agreed that Joanne would buy everything that was needed for the bathroom, and the tradie gave her a cost to install and renovate to her plan. Fast forward three months and the tradie was nowhere to be seen and uncontactable. With the goods for her bathroom waiting in Mitre 10 and a loan taken out for the project, Joanne was desperate to get the job underway. The Solution “I spoke to someone at work, saying I didn’t know what to do. I needed to have my bathroom renovated, and my colleague said, have you put it on Builderscrack?

Galvanised Pipe Replacement - mains water meter to house only

Posted 4 days ago

I have an older house in which all the galvanized piping has been replaced except for that between the mains water meter and the house.   The water pressure has been constantly lower than normal mains pressure since purchasing this house in 2012. When the galvanised pipe to the hose tap, in photo 1, was replaced a few years ago, a lot of corrosion was found inside the pipe. I therefore believe the corrosion in the pipe between the water meter and the house is lowering the water pressure in the...
