    ^ It might have been a Thai "qualified" specialist who ran the cable.

    Convincing.

    The way he's leaning comfortably on his left elbow adds genuine pathos.

    Finally. Someone ^ who can actually compose an objective, friendly, and informative post, without adding some favoritism intonation or an arrogantly subtle put-down slant, included with their reply. Way to go.

    There are no guarantees that the next electrician will do any better. I found the best way to get an electrician is to go to your service provider. Ask them if one of their electricians can come and check your house. Your provider only uses uni trained electricians.

    Reminds me of the good ol Latin American "Suicide Shower"- I didn't find shower time a particularly relaxing time when I lived in Honduras!

    Not my pic- these where the days before smartphones

    Don't know. Opening post says it's the water heater cable. He is living there - can't take a chance.[/QUOTE]
    When we moved from Samui to the backwoods of Surat, the gf took a shower she had bought, away from the rental property in Samui, to install it in the new rental house in the sticks.
    She called a local “plumber” to install it in one of the shower cubicles that were both cold supply only.
    He gave her a list of parts he would need for the job. Top of the list was an earthing spike and wiring for same. Civilisation ensued.

    Aww... come switch, you're just bragging, out of all the "monkey see, monkey doers" you hit a professional - well, someone's gotta hit the lottery, glad it was you. But, your experience was the exception, not the rule. Even the highly qualified and trained folk occasionally make mistakes, overlook or miss an error. Why in the US you need a permit, final inspection and approval of an installation/renovation. Always oversee and review the work performed. After all you pay the price of their mistake (be it intentional, laziness, or just plain overlooked).

    Oh well, it was a Holiday Inn besides Intercontinental, but the buffet came to only 450b per person including a service charge. You can't beat that.

    Cheaper than Sizzlers and the mushroom soup was much better
