nice one John

we had all the mains flushed last year and since then the pressure has been a nightmare as it now runs normal then all of a sudden you get a burst of pressure which usually results in me getting soaked... lol

best water pressure i have ever had the misfortune of dealing with is in Lower Largo, when fitting a washing machine you have to install a ballafix and set it to almost fully off. turning a garden hose on results in 20ft fountain.. lol

You can get pressure reducer valve to reduce incoming pressure and maintain a constant pressure ( mount near to stop tap ), our whole house has hot and cold water ( pressurised hot water tank) at 3 bar ( 45 psi ) which is ideal and means a power shower does not need a pump.

The new pipe was connected today and what a difference to the pressure it has made. Such a small thing but it's brought a huge smile to my face.
Thank goodness houses have been fitted with plastic water pipes from water company stop tap to house for quite a while now, they don't corrode and block up and are flexible enough that they don't crack with soil movement - progress......

I had to fit a reducer to our villa in Turkey. The mains pressure was so high that it hurt if you put your hand under the cold tap when it was fully open. The reducer brought the pressure down to a more reasonable level.

Have to go to Aberystwyth tomorrow to deliver my little portable studio to a friend for repair. Weather forecast gives wall to wall sunshine and 17C so I think that means I'll be going on the bike then.

I have Krieger us10 and us20 bags that I bought back when they were a little cheaper, almost 10 years ago now, and they're still going strong...they may be over priced but I don't think there's anything as good out there...

Had a day out to the coast as Lady Poppy was off seeing her dad and I could trundle around at my own pace. Took the train unfortunately as the weather forecast was carp and sure enough I got soaked after 14:30 but I had a cracking walk along the Essex coast from Southend to Shoeburyness and found quite a lot of geocaches along the way. Feel shattered now and you don't realise how sh1te the old/noisy rolling stock is on your home line until you spend the day on a more modern line but it was a nice day out.

Sat in shorts and t-shirt, cup of coffee in hand, watching the sun rise over the sea. A few clouds about, and a breeze blowing up the valley. Don't you just love life!
