Yes but it will last for years now - wont it?
The paint was so thick a mixing stick I left in the paint stayed upright whilst I got out the dust sheets & ladders etc. It was described as mono couche & for once it actually was. It covered well although it was hard work to roll on.
Tollens guarantee it for 12 years as long as you comply with their long list of instructions so I guess the answer is 'maybe' as I must have failed to apply it as they say.
Thing is, my missus changes her mind about the colour every few years so longevity is not that important. :lol:

We are meant to be working but other than walking the dog nothing else has happened.

Right now sitting down on a comfy sofa but about to plumb in a bathroom which should take about two hours to complete in plastic flexi pipes.
No soldering or copper in this house.

Is it your first time?

You will never look back!

Are you using raccords à cintrer? If not give them a try next time, the seeting tool is cheaper now in France but cheaper still on Ebay UK, several of the pro suppliers do good deals on bulk purchases on their websites.

One of my very few regrets is not understanding all the benefits and moving to this system earlier but in the early days there is so much to cope with.

Next move should be to steel stud framing for walls, ceilings and partitions, the weight and volume of materials that you will transport will be drastically reduced as will the cost, I can recommend a couple of must have pro tools that are not only good value but again you will never want to go back to working without them.

Watching the tennis and tidying up for the cleaner.

No idea what your talking about 8-) unless you mean PER. It's the plastic flexi pipe all run from a pipe with several exits with stop valves. Used it before it's quick easy and does not get damaged by frost

Mysty.

I was asking what type of connectors (raccords) are you using on the PER, you probably with have started with compression ones, if you move on to a better cheaper pro system I recommend the crimp type (raccords à cintrer) with the crimping tool like a bolt cutter, between the two is the push on fittings with a retention collar (raccords à glisser).

Most secure, cheapest in volume, biggest range of fittings and needing the least space to set are the raccords à cintrer

Had a lovely lunch on the patio with someof our friends. Now waiting for a couple of other friends to swing by later and collect some girolles which hubbie picked this morning. Another huge carrier bag full.
