Leaking Bath DIY Plumbing

My husband and I recently had a problem with leaking water from our bath and manage to fix it using DIY technique! But first, I would like to inform you that my husband had an experience with plumbing before so this problem it not really new to him! I know that leaking water from a bath is a frustrating problem, so on this blog post I would like to tell you some ways to stop a leaking bath. 

Things to do: 

The first thing I would advise you to do is to do a proper visual with your bathtub, that means you have to look for cracks on the bath, check the tiles and silicon the seals on the bathtub. The next thing you have to look through is the drain; you can do this by taking the drain off using a metal knob tool. Once the metal drain is off, inspect for damages! If there is no damage on the drain, check if the plumbers putty (the sealant on the drain) is still on. If not, place new plumbers putty around the drain and place it back in the bath and make sure that it is tight.

Checking time:

After checking the pipes and sealing the drain, cover the drain or hit the stopper and fill the tub with water. Then check for water leaks! Now if you won’t see any leaks, that means you have solved the leak problem!

If it is still leaking:

If you can still see water leaking from the bath, and still want to fix it using DIY, you can open the side of the bath using an appropriate tool (like a screwdriver) to unscrew the side panel of the bath off. Then check the plastic pipes underneath. In our case, the plastic tube underneath the drain has started to deteriorate and needed a replacement. If you got the same problem, all you have to do is buy a replacement tube from any DIY shop and replace the old one underneath the bath. What I have noticed is that most of the plastic pipes are threaded so it is easy to connect from one pipe to another. After that, check again for water leaks!
If water is still leaking from the bath, you may trace up the pipes by opening the floor board and check for holes or broken pipes.
If the problem is with crack tiles, the best thing to do is to re-tile it, otherwise you can seal it with a sealant.

Good Luck!

Sakura 12v Car Power Inverter

This Sakura converts the 12V in-car power source into a 240V household socket and is suitable for any electrical appliance up to 80W. Multi-angle head and adjustable size 12V plug for optimum versatility, has a
LED power indicator and a built-in fuse for additional safety. I got this Sakura power inverter for about a year now and probably only used it 3x. It does work, but only plug it in if your car is on, because it will drain the battery of your car quickly when you plug it in without starting your car.

Product description from the manufacturer:

It is a simple device with a multi-angle head that plugs into the cars 12V socket & provides you with a 3 pin household socket allowing you charge any device up to 80W including laptops, PDA, game console, mobile phones, MP3 players and even TVs.

Domains promo codes new fish logo


Has anybody seen the Domain Promo Codes new logo? Well if you haven’t, it it's now changed into a fish logo and I think, this is far better than the old logo! The old logo by the way is just pale green with white text, which is not very noticeable in my personal view, so having this big eye fish splashing is a massive change to catch everyone’s attention. Also I have noticed that the website color is a lot brighter than before! As of what I can remember the old color is very pale, I think it is also a very light green and white, which I think is a little dull!

I also think there are more vouchers given away now than before and more and more popular registrars giving massive discounts over domaining, renewals and hosting’s.

Steam Mop


I recently bought a steam mop (Holme brand) that says it does carpet as well as tiles, laminate, and vinyl flooring. I think I have already tried it 3 times and I it does a great job in cleaning and freshening the carpet! But as far as getting rid of stains; I would say you still need some stain cleaning stuff to get rid of the stains on carpets. Have tried this steam mop on dried paint stain on our living room carpet and it did not clear the stain! Instead, I have managed to get rid of the stain by cleaning using a damp dish cloth and a washing powder. Overall, this steam mop it is not bad for the price, so if you just want to buy to try it out, I would recommend this make!

Here in the United Kingdom, Mother’s day is celebrated every 3 weeks before Easter. So this year 2013, Mother’s day in the UK along with Ireland, and Nigeria was yesterday, March 10, 2013. I have not blog lately, so even if it is a little late, I would like to greet the wonderful mom’s from Ireland, Nigeria and UK a Happy Mother’s Day!
