Re: Descaling American fridge freezer dispenser tubes?

That´s correct, mine is also fitted to the mains, and without the mains pressure you cannot dispense anything. It now takes over a minute to fill a glass of water. I would be very interested in sorting this if anyone knows anything?

Re: Descaling American fridge freezer dispenser tubes?

Hi Sid, should have mentioned earlier. I looked into that on the web. Seemed straightforward. Fill tubes with vinegar and run it through. Thing is , when I remove the inlet from the tap, the dispenser will not run. So I have no way of getting the vinegar into the pipes if there is no pressure to pus...

Descaling American fridge freezer dispenser tubes?

Hi all, I have a Whirlpool american fridge freezer with built in dispenser. I´ve had it for about 5-6 years now and the dispenser is getting painfully slow. I am guessing limescale. I called whirlpool for advice, but we all know the Spanish and their wonderful customer service :thumbdown: Wouldn´t e...

Movember is about raising much needed funds and awareness for men's health specifically prostate cancer and depression in men.

Re: WhatsApp ?

The messages are sent via internet and it is more like a chat style messaging system,than texting. It´s the same type of thing that Blackberrys have with BBm messaging,which again is "free" but you pay for internet instead - Yoigo for exaple offer 500meg for 8 euros a month.

Re: Spanish court ruling !!!!!!!!!!!!

So why doesn't this work the other way? Think about it. The bank feels they have lost out on a property since it has devalued, even though they themselves lent the money after valuing it as such. Does that mean a repossessee (is that a word?) could then go after a bank and demand his extra slice of ...

Re: Walkable skylights/good window company?

Thanks again for the help guys. I gues we are stuck with these ugly skylights we have, unless we go for glass ones, but which again will not be flush with the floor. Oh to be a billionaire.

Re: Walkable skylights/good window company?

Thanks again for the great suggestions. Only trouble with the glass blocks - they're not openable like a skylight and therefore we wouldn't be able to ventilate in the summer/winter!
