I come home, and I'm like, “I left it nice and tidy, what happened?”.  Michelle and her son moved into their home three years ago, and with a laugh explains “how things were starting to fall apart and in need of repair”.

Replace wire on hot water cylinder

Posted 16 hours ago

Hi there, We had a new hot water cylinder installed and the plumber recommended that the wires be replaced. “I have wired the cylinder up and it's safe and working. However the wiring is a little tired (the outer casing is cracking) and I think it would be good practice to get an electrician to replace it. It's not urgent so long as it's left alone but better safe than sorry. It's very straightforward and shouldn’t take more than an hour.”
