How To Fit A New Bathroom Mono Lever Tap

After fixing my cold tap I discovered the hot tap was completely seized and I destroyed the brass nut in my attempts to unscrew it. Before anybody ask I had ALL the right spanners and tools it just wasn't for moving at all. Having removed that mono hot and cold lever tap I now need to install my new mono lever tap. First I need to descale the hole and the surrounding scale which cover from having a water leak in a very hard water area. Once its clean I'll take you through the step LIVE (it was when I did it) on how I fixed1t in place. Please subscribe to the channel and give the video thumbs up if it helps.

How To Remove A Bathroom Mono Dual Tap

After fixing my constantly dripping cold tap I discovered the dripping hot tap was completely seized and the nut got destroyed in my attempts to unscrew it, even with the correct tools. But looking on the bright side I got a fixing the cold tap video out of it.

So before I can fit a new mono tap unit I need to safely remove this one with the minimum of damage to the sink unit, plughole and pipes as I want to use them all again ;-)

So here is how I fixed1t

How To Fix A Dripping Pedestal Sink Tap

If your taps are dripping after being turned off you have a tap leaking valve or valve seal. I had such a problem on a ceramic valve tap and this video details how I fixed1t. Before I started the repair I turned off the emergency water stop valves to the taps. If you don't know how to do this use the in video link to find out how to do that! What this video shows is that quite often it isn't the ceramic valve which is faulty but scale building up inside the tap. Malcolm aka  @FIXED1T  #fixed1tMONEYSAVINGtips #fixed1tPLUMBINGtips

How To Get To And Close A Pedestal Sink Tap Emergency Stop Valve

If your bathroom or ensuite taps are dripping or you have a leak, then you will need to turn off the emergency stop valves under the sink or behind the sink pedestal. It sounds like it should be simple but Its almost as if plumbers make this inaccessible just to prevent DIY plumbers and techies like me from doing it ourselves. Often to get at the pedestal to remove it you first have to remove the sink, taps and all that entails so I figured out a quick way to do it. This is how I #fixed1t Malcolm aka  @FIXED1T  #fixed1tMONEYSAVINGtips #fixed1tPLUMBINGtips

Fortnite Worst Player One Shot 2nd Place So Close To A Win

Yesterday Oliver aka #trickshotmaster2022 introduced my alter ego #fixed1t_fixer to ONE SHOT another crazy variant in Fortnite which was full of incredibly skilled 'Sweaty' players who can No Scope snipe somebody whilst flying through the air and bouncing around. I didn't do at all well, so I decided I'd have another go in the early hours. The first few games I obtained 16th, 9th and an 8th all of which was pretty good as you start of against 100 skilled players (I know they are killed because the unskilled players who don't like being slaughtered avoid such things). The last game before I went to my bed in the wee hours I got a stunning 2nd place against a flying sniping sweaty DEKU_0023 As usual my slow painful old arthritic fingers weren't quick enough and my reactions quick enough to pull off the win. This was made worse by the fact I was stupid enough to alert DEKU_0023 to my presence rather than doing my usual of waiting for the shot. But if only there were disability options that allowed me to build with the few remaining working fingers I'm left with.

Unboxing A Must Have Camera Articulating Crab Clamp Tripod Arm

Please use this free Link to purchase the arm to support fixed1t, it will cost you nothing but give me fractions of cents lol :

 Any photographer or videographer will tell you its those shots in tight spaces or odd closeups which are hardest to get, where there isn't enough space for a tripod or anything decent for your Gorilla Grip hand to grasp. This also goes for lighting macro shots or setting up a flash.  I've tried a number of items on the web but even the most attractive turn out to be easy to break plastic.

I was therefore really excited when I saw this Articulating Arm so I bought one.  In this Part 1 video I'll be unboxing what arrived and In part two I'll be testing it and putting it through its paces.

Today I'll Be Unboxing An

11 inch Articulating Magic Arm+Super Clamp Crab for DSLR Camera, LCD Monitor, LED Light Or Mobile Phone Tripod Head

Please Subscribe To My fixed1t YouTube Channel To Be Informed When The Part 2 Review is available along with my other Unboxing, Tutorial And Money Saving Tips

P.s. This reminds me to purchase another before they are all gone.

Giottos Tripod Head With Perished Rubber Handles And Knobs Repair - Par...

I bought a GIOTTOS tripod from eBay but discovered that the GIOTTOS MH5010 Tripod Head controls were covered in a disgustingly sticky black goo which made it dirty and pretty much impossible to use. So I decided to attempt to clean it off. This video is in three parts as there are three parts to clean two arms and a screw knob. In this Part 1 I'm going to attempt to clean the vertical control arm with some 99.5% ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL. Its something I've used before, but not on such an awful sticky mess. If you find this or any of my other videos on my  @FIXED1T  channel useful then please Like, Thumbs Up, Share And Subscribe. Thanks Malcolm aka  @FIXED1T  #fixed1tMONEYSAVINGtips #fixed1t

Fortnite Arena Duo Division 3 Teams With Division 8 What Could Go Wrong ...

Fortnite Arena Duo Division 3 Teams With Division 8 What Could Go Wrong + Item Shop Giveaway fixed1t_fixer Fortnite (Jan 2021) A friend of #trickshotmaster2022 Josh agreed to take me into Fortnite Arena Duo's. He's division 8 and the algorithm matches the division of the highest player with others in the same Division, so I'm up against deadly D8 sweaties. I convinced him to go to the end bus drop, as dropping straight into the action means my instant death, so I could live a few minutes. Getting 20th would be great for me. Also, watch out for the Fortnite Item Shop Giveaway item to the value of 300 VBucks, so watch carefully, you could get lucky. Players: Josh - Fortnite: joshmagill fixed1t Fortnite: fixed1t_fixer Sorry for the apparent repeat posting, but Oliver told me YOU CANT GIFT VBUCKS quite loudly and its true, despite the thousands of people claiming they can and go, so I'll send an item from the item shop to the value of 300 VBucks.
