Shed tiles...

Posted: Yesterday at 23:35

We are splurging a lot on this so we can use the greenhouse part as a bit of outdoor space too so looks are going to matter. Hence, no felt!

Why, thank you Zoomer!

That's what I am wondering, price quoted for the shingles is several hundred quid BUT the plastic ones are nearly a hundred quid per square metre anyway and a bit of maths suggests the savings won't be that huge...

Sorry to bore everyone with the ongoing shed saga, does anyone have any opinion on the use of red cedar roof tiles vs recycled plastic ones?

I am loathe to put a link in as I don't want to look like spam.

Sump is already dug (you can see in some of the pond pics), just need to put wiring for pump and work out the pumping piping dilemma and then Thunderbirds Are Go!

That was option two!

Googling has revealed 32ml hose that I suspect would fit tightly with a bit of huffing and puffing! Plus there are commercial hose reducers of assorted sizes.

It didn't come with a bung, I was wondering if a red rubber one for brewing (they come in 31mm) would do the job!

This one is new but doesn't have an adapter. Doesn't come with a hose either!

I have a fountain to set up (one of the stone spheres) and it has a 30mm drilled whole for the water to rise out of. The pump that I have has a pipe diameter of around 13mm, any wisdom as to how to get this to work? Are there adapters?

diatomeacous earth??

No, it won't work. Next?

More seriously, I've had people try to tell me all sorts of rubbish about this stuff. Apparently it kills fleas too... It doesn't!
