White growth coming through grout in bathroom

Hopefully, thanks :)

Nope, can't find anything anywhere else which is why I asked if it was possible for water to travel through the grout over time.
If it was a serious amount of…

Interesting, figured it had to be related to water under the tiles. It's all in areas that never get wet unless mopped which is bugger all moisture anyway (plus windows…

Have some white growth coming up through my grout in the main bathroom. I assume there is moisture under the tiles somehow and the white growth is some type of…

Opinion/Reviews: DeLonghi vs. Technika 900mm Uprights?

Had it 3 years now and no issues. I rarely use the oven myself except for pizza which is great as its wide enough for 2 pizza stones at once.

Which gas instantaneous hot water system?

Current unit is rated at 26lpm (when it works) but not sure at what temp and has suited my needs (when it worked) so I'm sure then rinnai 26 units…

Thanks, will keep them in mind. Probably just get a classic 26 model rather than the Enviro. Have to do a bit of research on that one to see if…

Wow that's a pretty strong vote for the rinnai systems! Have to get some quotes.
I do now, won't be using the original guy that's for sure.

That's the sort of reliability I'd expect! Excellent.
Don't have the controllers now so only way they'd get added is if they have wireless models now. Haven't missed the ability so…

Currently have a re-branded chromagen T26 gas instantaneous hot water system. Long story short, the plumber assured me of this great deal blah blah and its ended up being the…

Citrus, Chilli and Strawberry problems.

Another good thing to know, we go though plenty of the stuff so won't have any issues spreading it across the patch :)

Interesting, what is the actual product name for these things? Would I find them at bunnings?
Fu, need a bit of help…

Which blower/vac to buy? (Need vac for endless leaf drop!)

Found dad has one, not sure the brand. He said it was 240v and noisy as hell so grab the earmuffs when I'm there! Will give it a run this…

Sorry I meant the commercial stuff being expensive which is why I'm keen to read up on your previous info :)

TBH I'm not a fan of all those products as they're expensive as well.
I'll have a search for your posts and do some reading, thanks :)

Universal Tile Ventilators

I read it on this forum somewhere that leaving a window upstairs cracked open a bit might help. So in a bedroom furtherst from the stairs, I've found on the…

Yeah, switch is simple in that respect.
