Problems with electrical re-wire in my home, with the knowledge after the event that the client can do nothing about it, since NAPIT requires you to re-use the same contractor to fix the problems. Would you after reading these pages? Manderson emails to us about re-wire.

We wrote the
concerns about the electrical work on 21.03.21;
Questions concerning electrics on 21.03.21 and
re-wire narrative on 19.04.2021
which had no effect on the credit card company or NAPIT. So we commisioned the following report to see if that will make any difference.
Pages 10, 11, 12, 13 contain information concerning the condition of the electrical installation of the complete rewiring of my home by Mr Manderson of Manderson Electrical Services Ltd, with the report by a qualified electrician and this statement about the work carried out:-
"The result of my observations and testing, I am recommending that all the fixed wiring be recovered and a complete new fixed wiring installation is installed. Unfortunately the work previously carried out is of such a poor standard I cannot re-use any of it."
Mr Manderson is a Part P Registered Electrician with Napit; Registered Competent Person Electrical; Approved Electrician from Napit; City & Guilds Qualified; Part P Electrical Safety; and Honest & Transparent. His firm was employed to replace all the wiring, power sockets, light switches and lights and make sure that rodents could not attack them to chew through the cables or cause an
electrical problem.
Pages 10 lists 18 electrical faults on the new wiring, re-use of the old wiring, and old wiring that was still either in use or had been cut at the old power socket, at the old light fitting, or old light switch (the plasterers filled an old power socket metal box and short-circuited the fuse - it will be fine in 30 minutes sir; 4 hours later it was still shorting, so presumably that would explain why they switched off one of the fuses in the old fuseboard - see photo on page 15 of the report. As clients; we do appreciate having the opportunity of electrocuting ourselves from their re-wire work) where

  • fault 2 is a Code C1 'Danger Present' and immediate action is required from March 2021, (the electricians testing 2 of the double power sockets installed in the kitchen in 1987 found that they were polarity reversed. This risks a short circuit, shock or fire. They corrected the problem immediately)
  • Faults 4, 12, 14 and 18 are Code C2 and Urgent remedial action required,
  • Faults 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 13, 15, 16, 17 are Code C3 where improvement is recommended

Site Map - Ivydene Gardens Site Map - usually each of the educational not commercial 212 topics (none of these 212 linked websites sell or buy anything, nor do they take or give commission, and the only adverts are of products/services that I believe would benefit my visitors and are inserted by me) has its own Site Map, which is normally the first page of that Topic linked to from other topics.
Every page should have 3 separate tables - the Topics Table, the Data Table and the Pages/Index Table.
Each page has its own resources and is not data-base driven, so can be downloaded - downloading the whole website of 20.44 GB (3 Dec 2021) annually, with pages being between 1200 and over 6000 pixels wide and between 16k and over 33k long would provide you with an updating resource when either visiting a garden or planning your own. Usually 3 or 4 clicks gets you to any page in these 9763 pages in these folders from any other page.
Usually the top gallery of a plant type has all the flower images of that and the subsidiary galleries in 1 of 6 colours per month pages, with that flower thumbnail being in each month page that it flowers.
Clicking on the middle of that thumbnail will transfer you to that flower's page or row in data table within that page description; and
its link - the link may not work the day after it was created - to a mail-order nursery selling you that plant directly should be in the Comments row of that Plant Description Page.
The majority of the original images in this website are inserted, published in Freeway which produces a 72 pixel per inch Freeway image. This is exported to a File, and the image published by Freeway replaced by the re-imported Freeway image file as a pass-through image; before that is published again and the resulting folder website uploaded for visitors. The lower resolution speeds up the display of the 28,398 JPEG images - some of these images are re-used in different comparison pages of different galleries and therefore added to the resources of each of those galleries (6,508 images have garnons williams or garnons-williams as the ending of the filename and those can go in the public domain as of 5 June 2019, but all the remainder are

The UK Labour or Conservative government has been humiliating, degrading and dehumanizing its population for over 40 years, without its population realising:-

  • SUMMARY OF ITS EFFECT in row 2 and
  • WITH HOW THAT HAS BEEN DONE also in row 2,
  • to lead to THE UK IS SUFFERING ANARCHY in row 4.
     
  • Row 6 - If members of the UK public complain then Government's Public Order Act 2023 will put them in jail.

    If workers strike, then the Strikes (Minimum Service Levels) Bill (passed by House of Commons and House of Lords 4 July 2023) will kick in so you could be fired by ignoring a "work notice" ordering you to work on strike days for you in health, education, fire and rescue, transport, border security and nuclear decommissioning and radioactive waste management.
     
  • Row 7 - Water companies in England have faced a barrage of criticism as data revealed raw sewage was discharged for more than 3.6m hours into rivers and seas last year (2023) in a 105% increase on the previous 12 months, including that 38,000,000 tons of waste going annually into the River Thames from London. Environment Agency confirms 54% increase in sewage spills to more than 4,000,000 hours of raw sewage thought to have been discharged into rivers and seas in 2023. This kills the fish, marine life, as well as people/ visitors/ students from the UK and overseas/ swimmers in the waterways and the beaches in the UK, and via the seas to surrounding European countries of 1,000,000's of tons of raw human and animal sewage, microplastics and glyphosate pollution.

    My Experience with raw sewage in the sea and the Camber Sand staff stating it was only the result of a dead sheep in order to get adults and children to swim and play in human sewage, but it was because their was actual dumping of raw sewage in the river each side of the camber sands - I went to CAMBER SANDS beach last week with my wife, her 2 brothers and 2 children of 1 of the brothers.
     
  • Rows 8 and 9 provide further details on the dehumanizing of the UK population.

    Amazing how you can con 65,000,000 UK citizens, who will vote for this con-merchant in 2024. -
    Con 1 - by setting up a system that tells you a ratio to lull you into thinking finances are okay, but does not tell you how much extra debt that they have created that year.
    Con 2 - Also create a series of government departments to give the impression of controlling the privatised water boards, but actually they let them dump raw sewage into rivers and the surrounding seas. Southern Water gets most sewage dumps into rivers between 7am and 10am as people get up in Kent, Sussex and Hampshire. As it cannot treat its present population's human sewage waste, so any addition to the population such as students and immigrants coming into Kent in the UK in small boats across the Channel will simply add to these sewage spills.
    Con 3 - Using the Sewer Flow Diagram in the next table for Mains Water flow instead, you can see that if you increase the weirs to get water to separate new customers instead of to sewage treatment plants, then you will run out of water when there are too many for the capacity of that mains pipe laid in the 1800's.

TABLE SOS where the action of humans breathing produces carbon dioxide and the trees/plants/algae cannot process that; because we either cover the roots in concrete/tarmac or kill the algae in the sea from the phosphorus in the human produced sewage. So we are slowly asphixiating ourselves in the UK.
The level of oxygen refers to the amount of oxygen present in the atmosphere or water. Oxygen is produced by photosynthesizing organisms that live in the ocean, in fresh water, and on land. These organisms include bacteria, algae and plants. Photosynthesizing algae in the ocean produce around 70% of oxygen in the atmosphere. The UK pollution going into the sea is killing the algae which provide 70% of oxygen for UK, France, Holland, Portugal, Norway, Sweden and Denmark.

Medway Proposed New School Comments in September 2019

Neighbour cutting branches off our trees without Conservation Area permission and attempting to sink our house with 1000's of litres of their sewage by blocking the drain to our cesspit. For the following week, they continued to download their sewage after we had written to them stating that the cesspit was full and that the drain was blocked.

Problems with electrical re-wire in my home, with the knowledge after the event that the client can do nothing about it, since NAPIT requires you to re-use the same contractor to fix the problems.
Would you; after reading these pages? Manderson emails to us about re-wire.
We wrote the
concerns about the electrical work on 21.03.21;
Questions concerning electrics on 21.03.21 and
re-wire narrative on 19.04.2021
which had no effect on the credit card company or NAPIT. So we commisioned the following report to see if that will make any difference.
Pages 10, 11, 12, 13 contain information concerning the condition of the electrical installation of the complete rewiring of my home by Mr Manderson of Manderson Electrical Services Ltd, with the report by a qualified electrician and this statement about the work carried out:-
"The result of my observations and testing, I am recommending that all the fixed wiring be recovered and a complete new fixed wiring installation is installed. Unfortunately the work previously carried out is of such a poor standard I cannot re-use any of it."
Mr Manderson is a Part P Registered Electrician with Napit; Registered Competent Person Electrical; Approved Electrician from Napit; City & Guilds Qualified; Part P Electrical Safety; and Honest & Transparent. His firm was employed to replace all the wiring, power sockets, light switches and lights and make sure that rodents could not attack them to chew through the cables or cause an
electrical problem.
Pages 10 lists 18 electrical faults on the new wiring, re-use of the old wiring, and old wiring that was still either in use or had been cut at the old power socket, at the old light fitting, or old light switch (the plasterers filled an old power socket metal box and short-circuited the fuse - it will be fine in 30 minutes sir; 4 hours later it was still shorting, so presumably that would explain why they switched off one of the fuses in the old fuseboard - see photo on page 15 of the report. As clients; we do appreciate having the opportunity of electrocuting ourselves from their re-wire work) where

  • fault 2 is a Code C1 'Danger Present' and immediate action is required from March 2021, (the electricians testing 2 of the double power sockets installed in the kitchen in 1987 found that they were polarity reversed. This risks a short circuit, shock or fire. They corrected the problem immediately)
  • Faults 4, 12, 14 and 18 are Code C2 and Urgent remedial action required,
  • Faults 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 13, 15, 16, 17 are Code C3 where improvement is recommended

Because we had paid part of the cost to Manderson Electrical Services Ltd using a credit card, then after we had contacted them and sent the report, the credit card company re-imbursed us. We then used that money towards a total removal of all wiring and total rewiring by the electrician who had produced the report.

 

The above was a pointless waste of time - we have now had the house completely rewired again without any recompense from the original contractor's lies, thiefery and extremely dangerous work with the government body Napit being no help at all. The unfortunate consequence of either buying a house or having anything done to it is that you the owner can and will be totally screwed by the majority of the British Workforce.
I have looked at a job of the third replacement of turf in a back garden of a new house. The back garden was clay and sloped down to the house - that house will have subsidence problems within 10 years. The only way that it might save itself is to rip up the lawn and plant shrubs that will absorb every drop of rain that falls on that garden -
you are not allowed to either drain into the storm drain of the house which is what takes the rain from the roof of the house/garage or
drain the rainwater from your garden to outside your property onto either public land or into somebody else's property.
I refused the job and told the owner to get onto the builders to rectify their error.
Since builders are repeating the same error on a massive scale in Ashford in Kent, the poor owners of new £500,000 houses are going to be upset.

Mr Manderson of Manderson Electrical Services Ltd was employed to rewire our home, due to rodents eating our cables.
Mr Manderson is a Part P Registered Electrician with Napit; Registered Competent Person Electrical; Approved Electrician from Napit; City & Guilds Qualified; Part P Electrical
Safety; and Honest & Transparent.
His firm was employed to replace all the wiring, power sockets, light switches and lights and make sure that rodents could not attack them to chew through the cables or cause an
electrical problem.

We wrote the following on the 21.03.2021:-
"Concerns about electrical work

The work was needed because we had an infestation of rodents and cables had been chewed through, so as well as restoring all power, arrangements to stop this happening
again were paramount. We are not confident that this has been achieved, but it is what we thought we were paying for.
Not all wires have been encased in a sheath and even when they have, there are still areas exposed. We relied upon Mr Manderson’s expertise to provide a very high level of protection
from rodents, so we would have expected other arrangements to be made to protect ends of the metal sheath:-

  • 1. We provided wire wool, but little may have been used on only one hole in the wall in the lounge.
  • 2. Photo 78 shows one of the new ceiling lights hanging out of the ceiling in the back bedroom. Besides the lighting cables to the ceiling being partially covered by
    metal codex trunking; parts of those 2 wires are unprotected. Does that mean that all the other new ceiling lights have sections of wiring leading to their
    transformers without trunking?
  • 3. It would appear that all the new ceiling lights in the house for the top floor, bedroom floor, stairs and cloakroom, dining room, hall and lounge have these
    unprotected / untrunked cables between the transformer and light. Does this mean that every wire between the transformer and the new low-voltage light can be
    chewed through by rodents, which is directly against the contract?
  • 4. There was an occasion when Chris has remarked that a hole had been left in the lounge ceiling and not filled in (The electricians cut through the ceiling
    twice in parallel to the hall about 6 inches apart see one cut in photo 58 with the other hidden by the batten to the left of it. They then removed part of the
    plasterboard between these cuts closest to the kitchen see photo 23. This would have have given them access to that space to bring the new wiring to where it
    was required. This exposed a large hole in the ceiling with old lath/plaster ceiling above the new plasterboard put below it. For safety reasons, they were told to
    batten the ceiling and put up a new plasterboard under this frame. When I pointed out for the new ceiling in the dining room that the new ceiling
    lights were longer than the depth of the batten and the plasterboard, so that if they did put them up then they would have to make holes in the old ceiling
    above, they were astonished. So I said if the battening is doubled would that get over the problem and they said yes. This would be okay if they did not take
    down the old ceiling lights leaving holes in the old ceiling for the rodents to drop down into a complete open box of new cables and exposed wire. We did not
    see the state of the old ceiling before the new ceiling was up under it in the Dining Room, nor in the lounge or extra walling in the back bedroom, dining
    room and front bedroom. Also, anywhere where the new cable came into or out of that ceiling through the side walls with no filling in of those holes would also
    provide access for the rodents.
    The following day I asked about the filling in of the other hole leading to the hallway in the ceiling before they would cover it with another section of new plasterboard.
    They said sorry, they had not got the wire wool from me, but if I provided it then they would squirt foam in the other hole then the wire wool and then more foam. I was not
    aware if they took down the new ceiling and filled in the other hole. I did not stay there and very quickly the plasterboard went up and in that last day, they installed
    new ceiling lights in the newly erected plasterboard, without me seeing that they had secured that hole). This undermines confidence that other holes have been blocked.
  • 5. We provided 100 bags of anti-rodent poison so that each new light could have a bag alongside it, so that if a rodent got in it would probably eat it. Photo 20 shows you
    20 boxes with 4 bags in each. That means that in about 14 separate areas in the top floor, bedroom floor, ground floor and cellar that they had put down only 20 bags,
    when more than 20 new ceiling lights had been installed. Protection of wiring can also be carried by poison as well as by trunking.

Specifics:

  • 6. There are two holes in the kitchen wall above the door from the hall with bundles of wire, none of which is sheathed - see photos 16, 17, 18, 37, 38, 39, 96, 97 shows
    exposed wires of brown, blue and bare for modern up to date wiring), 98, 99, 100 and 101. Jason said this was work in progress.
  • 7. In the hall, close to the kitchen door, there is a switch on the wall between the lounge and the kitchen. The wire from that switch goes into the void by the cellar door
    with no obvious protection - see photos 103, 104, 105-111. We know that these void areas are vulnerable to attack.
  • 8. There is a hole in the ceiling under the stairs with a bundle of wires including data
    wires which goes to the cellar stairs without protection - see photo 112.
  • 9. At the bottom of the cellar stairs, there are wires - see photos 116 and 117 going to a junction box in the ceiling where new wires seem to be connected to old wires and
    new lights - see photos 118, 60, 61 and 62. Areas of this are not protected, but we were told the cellar was finished.
  • 10. In the cellar, there are new power sockets with wire in plastic conduit - see photos 64, 65, 66, 119, 120, 123,124 but again, so is it all protected. ??? Photos 120, 121 and
    122 show that the wire comes out of the white plastic trunking and is then tacked to the wall round the corner before it goes up into the ceiling and probably into the acoustic
    wall built in the Dining room in Photo 73 without any trunking.
  • 11. In the hall, there are wires in the wall by the dining room that are not protected.??? Would these not be plastered over??? See photos 138, 139 and 140. Yes they might well
    be plastered over, but these are in air gap behind the plaster so could be attacked by rodents, unlike the cable in the wall in Photo 103 which would be plastered over, but the
    cable above the ceiling would not be in photo 103. In looking closely at photo 139 the conductor colours are brown, black and grey, which is Three-Phase wiring. Why has
    new single phase and three phase wiring been used? Since “household wiring does not usually use three-phase supplies”.
  • 12. On the main stairs, middle landing, there are wires not protected. See A in Questions concerning electrics.
  • 13. Front bedroom new stud wall. Lights don’t appear to have any protection. No insulation visible
  • 14. Ditto back bedroom In addition - see photos 74, 75 and 76, there is a light hanging from the ceiling with some codex, but also a length of unprotected wire see 1 above.
  • 15. In the cloakroom, we are not sure if any of these wires go towards the second fuse box. No evidence of protection. New Fuse box 2 seems to have only the power from one
    socket downstairs in the hall on the old fuse board see section E on Questions concerning electrics. Is there any wiring between new fuse box 1 and new fuse box 2? If not then
    part of the new ceiling in the dining room will have to be taken down to accommodate this.
  • 16. Given findings regarding insulation behind new walls see photo 73, is the dining room new wall sound insulated?
  • 17. Also in the dining room, the wire for the pendant light (a 6 candle-shaped bulb candelabra) doesn’t feel as if it has codex round it - see photo 133.
  • 18. Also there is wire for a light on the other side of the dining-room door to the gap between the new ceiling and the wall, which seems to be unprotected - see photo 137."

This undermines confidence that other holes have been blocked.

Photo 58 Looking at this photo on Tuesday 20 July 2021, there appears to be electic lighting between the new ceiling and the old. Does this mean, that not only have they left the old lights in the old ceiling, but also that they have left them connected? Does that mean that elsewhere where new ceilngs have been added, that not only will we be paying for electric light in the room below but also for electric light in the box above for the rodents to see where they are going?

  • 9. At the bottom of the cellar stairs, there are wires - see photos 116 and 117 going to a junction box in the ceiling where new wires seem to be connected to old wires and
    new lights - see photos 118, 60, 61 and 62. Areas of this are not protected, but we were told the cellar was finished.

  • 10. In the cellar, there are new power sockets with wire in plastic conduit - see photos 64, 65, 66, 119, 120, 123,124 but again, so is it all protected. ??? Photos 120, 121 and
    122 show that the wire comes out of the white plastic trunking and is then tacked to the wall round the corner before it goes up into the ceiling and probably into the acoustic
    wall built in the Dining room in Photo 73 without any trunking.

Photo 121 taken on 18 March 2021.

In Photo 123 you can see an old double power socket with a new double power socket below it on the right. The Grey cable is inserted into the white plastic tube. This white tube goes to the other new double socket in Photo 124. The power cable then goes into another white plastic tube and up the wall to finish in Photo 120 where the new electrical power cable comes out of its protection, turns left and is tacked to the cellar wall until it reaches the second brick along to the right from the Arch brickwork as shown in Photo 122, where it then goes up into the ceiling and is still unprotected as shown in Photo 121.
All exposed cable was meant to have protection such as the white tubing or the Codex to prevent it being chewed by rodents.

Photo 73

In Photo 121 the new electric power cable gets inserted into the ceiling of the cellar. It then goes through to be behind the new stud wall erected by the electricians in the Dining Room above. This shows that new stud wall with its plasterboard screwed to it. I wonder if this new power cable is still unprotected in that stud wall.

When we have spent another £30,000, we will find out, since according to the statement by the person making out the electrical report, that since the job done was so poor, then

  • everything including all the old and new wiring, the lights, light switches and replacement of old fiittings re-used by Manderson Electrical Services Ltd instead of them replacing them will have to ripped out and started all over again,
  • thus causing full redecoration of the house after the plasterers have finished,
  • removals of our belongings, storage and bringing them back by a removals firm after the work is completed,
  • and re-laying of all the carpets.

 

 

  • 11. In the hall, there are wires in the wall by the dining room that are not protected.??? Would these not be plastered over??? See photos 138, 139 and 140. Yes they might well
    be plastered over, but these are in air gap behind the plaster so could be attacked by rodents, unlike the cable in the wall in Photo 103 (see Photo 103 in point 7 above) which would be plastered over, but the
    cable above the ceiling would not be in photo 103. In looking closely at photo 139 the conductor colours are brown, black and grey, which is Three-Phase wiring. Why has new single phase and three phase wiring been used? Since “household wiring does not usually use three-phase supplies”.

  • 12. On the main stairs, middle landing, there are wires not protected. See A in Questions concerning electrics.
  • 13. Front bedroom new stud wall. Lights don’t appear to have any protection. No insulation visible
  • 14. Ditto back bedroom In addition - see photos 74, 75 and 76, there is a light hanging from the ceiling with some codex, but also a length of unprotected wire see 1 above.

  • 15. In the cloakroom, we are not sure if any of these wires go towards the second fuse box. No evidence of protection. New Fuse box 2 seems to have only the power from one
    socket downstairs in the hall on the old fuse board see section E on Questions concerning electrics. Is there any wiring between new fuse box 1 and new fuse box 2? If not then
    part of the new ceiling in the dining room will have to be taken down to accommodate this.
  • 16. Given findings regarding insulation behind new walls see photo 73, is the dining room new wall sound insulated?
  • 17. Also in the dining room, the wire for the pendant light (a 6 candle-shaped bulb candelabra) doesn’t feel as if it has codex round it - see photo 133.
  • 18. Also there is wire for a light on the other side of the dining-room door to the gap between the new ceiling and the wall, which seems to be unprotected - see photo 137."
