    Encapsulated downlights

    Very few products are manufactured with a high level of build quality nowadays. Its build cheap maximise profits, with minimal consideration of reliability. You see all the time over a broad range of products; tools, clothes, furniture, electronics, etc, etc,. so why would anyone think lighting products would be any different? Whatever items you do choose to supply, you must factor in potential losses due to repeat visits for premature failures. As it is certain they will come along at some point. Doc H.

    TT system

    Cheers mate
  5. Another thing to check (if you have it) is the bathroom fan, if on a timer. I had a timer module that was in the throws of burning out and it caused weird faults with lighting. Only when the bathroom was switched on.

    Mandatory testing of rental properties.

    Thanks for that Dave , that gives me some ammunition .....actually it gives me am atomic bomb . OK Murdo ...is that just because I should include my own MP out of respect ? He'll ignore it anyway but I'll do that . We are fighting the council in this constituency over demolishing a flyover on one of Brum's main arterial routes ....( because it will look unsightly when we host the Commonwealth Games ) . What does our MP think /say /do ...bugger all . Is there any point in me involving our ex MP , Lord Rooker of Perry Barr ...I presume the House of Lords doesn't represent the common man in any way .? Jeff Rooker was a excellent MP even though he was Labour .
  7. Building on the success of its recent solar PV installation schemes in London and the East of England, Solar Together has announced it will launch further schemes across the UK in September. These schemes will, for the first time, include battery storage where appropriate. iChoosr, specialist in group buying schemes, will partner with local authorities in the North, East and South of England to offer good value systems to local domestic consumers. Installers with the capacity to deliver high volume domestic installations are invited to register their interest before 16 August here: www.ichoosr.co.uk/suppliers and begin the qualification procedure. Installers must be MCS-certified and a member of a CTSI-approved Code such as RECC. Once they have satisfied the strict quality control criteria successful installers will be invited to take part in an auction as a result of which the prices will be set. For further information about taking part in the scheme contact Ruud Frijstein, Project Manager, Solar Together UK, on ruud@ichoosr.com or +44 2035144667. View the full article
  8. Very helpful, thanks for the explanation. It makes sense to me now. Wow, I hope that NEVER happens to me. Thanks for the tip though, I would always first suspect my workmanship or my testing kit. It would not occur to me that the system itself had a fault but now you've highlighted it, I'll bear it in mind. Thanks again

    Just washing the car .

    Ah well thats fairly normal I suppose , you tend to get used to it . Someone's girlfriend we know has just spent two years in digs in Heeley Rd I think it was . All was well. I think a good thing with students is , they are nearly always in groups , may I suggest that may be a good thing to do .

    Just noticed this one on the computer

    It's that that made me suggest getting the DNO involved. Those cleats are still used today but obviously now made of a hard plastic. The porcelain “bobbin” insulators are way before my time.
  12. I would also suggest you look at computer or cloud based packages for estimates, invoices and record keeping - massive time savers and this helps keep you accountants bills down too

    Only common courtesy.
  14. I tried a number of fluorescent starters. Found one which is perfect and gives the desired effect on high wattage lights. I used 75-125 Watt T12 Single Fluorescent Tube Lights 240v General Electric (GE) 155/800. Thanks for the other advice. This was a bit left field!

    Welcome to the forum "FilterMonkey". The only advice I can offer is; Dive in and get involved, Do not try to pretend to be something you are not, Be open honest and real with any topics you decide to get involved in, And most of all:- keep your sense of humour controls set to 'Maximum' and your misunderstanding filters set to 'Tolerant' and 'Very-feasible'. Then I guess you should find it a worthwhile environment to visit. Doc H
