comment Are flexible PVC couplings rated for direct burial?
I'd find out who owns that utility line running across and make them pay for the repair.

I'm not sure what you mean by question 1.

comment What is the difference between a conservatory and an orangery?
Typically, and orangery is a brick structure with large glass windows/doors. A conservatory is a glass structure -- more like a greenhouse, but may have a brick knee-wall as a foundation..

comment Suggestions for a kitchen layout for my house?
Fantastic question. Unfortunately interior design and layout are off topic on this site. We'd be more than happy to assist you in implementing a plan, but we're not designers. However, come into chat, where the rules are less stringent.

comment How do I know if my power drill needs to rotate clockwise or counter clockwise to drill forward?
Ok. There's something wrong with the drill. I'd take it back, show someone what it does, and get a replacement. It's backwards.

See the edit to my answer. I've added an image of the drill in action with clearly indicated clockwise/forward.

comment Why is it taking so long for my house to heat up with no quality to the heat generated?
Seriously though, If the Radiators are hot, then everything is working fine. If everything is within the required tolerances and settings are as expected, then the problem is not with the heating system.

The manual is correct, you're thinking backwards. Clockwise and counterclockwise is from the perspective of you behind the drill -- That is, how you would normally hold it, looking down on the work. That being said, most drills use F and R, for forward and reverse, or have little arrows on the switch. Bad User Interface design in my opinion.

You've entered a temporal warp. The heat from the present is actually heating the past, which is why it seemed to work so well before. Have the technician come back and remove the flux capacitor. This may have the effect of changing your recollection of past events.
