We have a new boiler and thermostat. DH wanted to know why I chose the Honeywell CM907 and looked a bit bemused when I said because PigletJohn said so.. :-)

Dh also looked hmm when I told him not to use PVA glue on our newly plastered walls prior to tiling as our builder had told him to. I didn't go as far as to mention PigletJohn by name though grin.

What boiler did he recommend to you OP? Google of Honeywell CM907 took me to thermostat controller stuff.

DH was very impressed with my knowledge of industrial hoovers grin

I bought an Aqualisa shower for our just-fitted bathroom, because PigletJohn said so…
DH and I are both very happy with it!

We have the Yale alarm because pigletjohn said so grin. I also never ever EVER dry washing indoors coz pigletjohn said it was equivalent to throwing buckets of water at your walls.

Dh does that face too.

I have been cross hatching wallpaper before soaking and stripping today because PJ said so.

My husband just smiles as he asks me to check what PigletJohn has to say on any given (building type) subject...

In an alternative world I'd like to be apprenticed to pigletjohn and never touch spreadsheets again!

LeLivre it was just the thermostat that was mentioned on numerous previous threads. PigletJohn would get on well with our heating engineer as he agreed. We are oil so have just had a Grant fitted.

Oh and we had an aqualisa put in for the same reason...

Does Google not work where you live?

Who needs google we have PigletJohn.

I wish I'd asked PJ which boiler to get!

I'm jealous.

PigletJohn is the unofficial Honorary Grand Poobah of Mumsnet DIY.

Strike that, all of MN grin

Thanks to PJ I don't have a smelly washing machine and always open the windows when I dry washing indoors.

sillymillyb Wed 26-Nov-14 18:58:26

I want to know more about piglet john. Is he married? Kids? Favourite colour?

fairypond Wed 26-Nov-14 19:14:27

Piglet John did hint that he is a virtual person, a sort of male Lara Croft. I don't believe him though. wink

No one know who/what PJ is, he is an Enigma wrapped within an Conundrum.

culturemulcher Wed 26-Nov-14 21:59:11

Could someone <I'm looking at you Bunbaker> tell me what the hon. PigletJohn said about smelly washing machines? because mine is For a friend.

I wish he was a woman cause it would be cool for a female to know so much about heating etc but I suppose he is male

PigletJohn has solved my condensation problem.
