We have a new project on the website for those of you who are needing to replace or lay a new floor for your bathroom or kitchen.
Your bathroom is obviously a wet place and the type of flooring you choose is very improtant, just as in your kitchen where there are often spills, so a waterproof flooring is a great idea. This project introduces a waterproof laminate flooring by Industrial Plastic Solutions Ltd (IPSL UK) called Aquafloor, which is 100% waterproof and can be laid yourself. It is an easy to fit interlocking system just like any other laminate flooring but instead of being manufactured from MDF, it is made from polymers, which as well as being waterproof is also very tough.
The ‘how to waterproof a floor’ project gives step-by-step instructions on how to prepare the floor, how to lay the boards and how to get the best finish. There is a range of colours available and you can get samples and order online.

DIY Doctor spends a great deal of time researching for each page we write. New products and methods are appearing all the time and regulations change like the weather. We need to keep abreast of these changes and our team is always searching and researching.
Our projects team were recently asked to research the problems of hard water and the subsequent limescale in certain areas of the country and we uncovered a fact that stunned us a little. We have always assumed hard water is bad for you and soft water good for you. NOT SO !
Certainly we found that the salts and minerals picked up from the ground in hard water areas will leave big chucks of limescale on your appliances, but are they harmful to humans?
Watch the video to find out. We have no hesitation in recommending the Eddy Water Descaler as it really does do exactly what it says on the tin.
