One of the main points to place tiles correctly is to have the support on which we are going to tile well prepared , having a firm and clean surface will ensure we get a good grip, if the support is very flat it will facilitate the laying without the dreaded ones « teeth »between tiling.
To get a good base, different types of mortar are usually used, from an aggregate and portland mortar to carry out a drilling process, to a self-leveling mortar if it is a matter of tiling, each case will be different, but we must ensure firmness, cleanliness and flatness of the support.To get flat surfaces it will be necessary to help us with rules of adequate dimensions, make some masters that serve as guides and spread the mortar following the masters, this whole process has nothing to do with tiling but it is a vital point to facilitate good tiling .

As for the cleaning of the support, a good sweep will suffice, the support should not drop pebbles, because if they do not pass the trowel, they will come off and complicate our lives.For different mortar supports, for example wood, plaster walls, old tiles, etc ... we must use a special glue cement for each type of surface , although personally I think it is preferable to remove those materials and level the surface with mortar and then tiling.
Sometimes, when removing the old tiles, we have the wall almost ready to tile, in that case if the old tiles were well placed, we will already have the plumb and smooth walls, so it will be enough to cover the remaining holes and we can tile on top perfectly.Once we have the surface prepared, the tiling will be much faster and easier to do by spreading the glue cement with a notched trowel.

The easiest way is when you need to replace a faulty mixer, in this case you will roughly imagine which model you need, how long the hoses will be needed, to which supply the hot water is connected and to which cold water. Today we will talk about how to install a faucet on a washbasin. If the faucet was already on the washbasin, and it was convenient, such models should be considered, but special attention professional plumber should be paid to quality and maintainability.

Preference should be given to high-quality mixersand cranes of the most common brands, having previously checked with the consultant whether spare parts are available for repair, and in what range the prices are.

The car broke down on the road. We'll have to tow it to the service. But how? In a driving school, this topic is touched only in passing. Therefore, knowledge of the transportation of the car will be useful to everyone. We decided to share them. First of all, you need to decide how exactly you will transport your car to the place of the proposed repair. There are several options: on a flexible hitch, with the help of partial or full loading. Towing service  on a rigid hitch is carried out using a special design. Unlike a conventional cable, it provides a constant distance between vehicles. This is a plus. Typically, this method is used for towing heavy equipment and trucks. And quite rarely - passenger cars. The usual towing eye of a modern car simply cannot withstand a rigid hitch - with regular jerks it can break off. And hardly anyone will carry with them in reserve a device for a rigid coupling of cars. The most accessible from a technical point of view and at the same time the


It's amazing how one and the same stone can awaken in a person a variety of intentions and aspirations - an unfair struggle has been fought over diamonds for centuries, today these precious stones are the most valuable exhibits at exhibitions, and the cost of Pink diamond at auctions rises to unimaginable limits. Diamonds evoke the brightest emotions, delight, but at the same time give rise to dark thoughts, inspired by the desire to single-handedly possess the treasure. In the world of jewelry, everything is not so categorical, diamonds in products and accessories are so widely represented that each buyer can choose stones in any price category, literally from several thousand rubles. This gem is a diamond cut in a special, ultra-precise way: the facets are arranged in such a way that the natural beauty of the stone is emphasized - its color, transparency, light refraction. Jewelers have developed enough types of cut to find a personal approach to each  Pink diamond , a way that
