evenin all

asked by chap who is partner of customer I do work for to run armoured cable that he has supplied. Down a stream in his garden to two double waterproof sockets. These are to be mounted on post as area can flood approx 50metres down garden. I said that I would not be happy laying cable in stream without any protection ie service ducting. what are your thoughts on this.

I told him that I would only do the job if the cable was put in a ducting, he said its my stream no one goes in it etc etc. I said I have to certificate my work so if you where to move out and someone in the future where to get injured due to the cable I would be liable. He then started to talk about cash so like a good electrician I put a high price in. Hopefully that will be the end of it.

You leave that coat where it is "K", IMHO - That was a cracking one.
