    I am adding some extra sockets to the ring main in my bedroom. I have done this before and used open grommets in the back boxes to protect the cables. However I've seen in one diy book that we should only use blind grommets and cut a hole in them just big enough for the cable - apparently this is to hinder fire / smoke spreading in event of a fire. Is this correct?

    Do I need an electrician & a plumber to have an electric shower fitted, or are there companies that will have both so I pay one price for the job, rather than get an electrician to do electrics then a plumber to do plumbing?

    I have 2 lights in my Kitchen/Diner and looking to replace them with a dozen spotlights. These will need to be fitted from underneath i.e not taking carpet up from above. What should i expect to pay for the job and will a plasterer be needed after ?

    I have a socket switch that powers my electric shower. It started smelling “fishy” and the socket/switch was very warm/hot. Now it has stopped working. The switch turns to ‘on’ position but there is no power. How can this be repaired cost effectively?

    Asked by Joy on 18th Apr 2020

    Hi can someone help me work out what’s wrong with the plug socket? The switch is permanently 'on' on the faceplate and when I press it to turn it off it won’t stick down, it just clicks back into ‘on’ position. I had another one do this last year but one day it just worked again and I have no idea how it was fixed. How can I fix the switch?

    Hi, I’ve got questions about putting up lights in the garden. 1. What’s the safest way to string up lights in a small tree? We’re talking 12ft high. 2. Will old outdoor xmas lights work? 3. How can I hide the wire between the garage and the tree safely?
