    Went into a house rewired at the start of Jan to extend the old immersion circuit to feed a FCU for the new combi boiler. Should of taken more pics now i think back. Makes me laugh because I asked the owner of the house who did it, they told me and are happy with it.

    Why bother cutting chases deep enough, the rough as hell coat of bonding will 'just' about cover me cables!

    Wow! 19 years between inspections. That's stretching GN3, Table 3.2, initial I&T frequency, recommendations and some. Talk about over confidence in the standard of their work and the state of the installation. If the company's QS has signed off on this ... to quote Jeremy Clarkson "He what's shooting." ... and the electrician fired ... but I quess it's yet another self-certified job, that has not been checked by a QS.

    Why wouldn't they be happy with it? Probably a good few hundred cheaper than the highest quote and everything works.

    And there's the problem, we see the 'tails', the 'next inspection due' and the abysmal mini trunking, all painting a picture of a poor quality installation, the client sees.......the price.
