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

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,

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
copyrighted by others and may not be re-used elsewhere without the permission of the copyright holder).
Camera photos of Coleus RHS Bedding Trial starts the process of displaying the complete 4000 x 3000 pixel original photos from Chris Garnons-Williams. Since each photo can be 3.5-6.0 Mb and there may be 11 of these on a page; each page may take a long time to download .

  • 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.

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, 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

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

We wrote the following on the 21.03.2021:-

"Questions concerning electrics

  • A. There are cables in the cloakroom with no obvious protection at the moment. We are not clear where they go and if they are protected from ceiling upwards. See photos
    10, 11, 28, 29, 31, 125 and 126. Photo 141 shows the bottom landing at the top of the stairs from the ground floor to the bedroom floor. It then shows the middle landing,
    the step up to the landing outside the dormer bedroom at the top of the picture. There is another step to the left to the stairs from the bedroom landing to the library/ study/ tank
    room of the top storey. When the carpet is removed and floor-boarding removed of the middle landing as shown in photos 145 and 146 one sees unprotected new data wire
    and grey cables in photo 145, these unprotected grey wires continue on to photo 146 and are under a coiled bundle of grey wire and data cable as shown in photo 147. This
    wire bundle continues to the kitchen as shown in photos 16, 17, 18, 37, 38, 39, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99, 100 and 101. Photo 102 shows the view from the kitchen along the hall to
    the front door, passing the lounge door on the right and the cellar door on the left, then the stairs to the bedroom floor on the left with the door to the dining room on the left
    before coming to the door to the left for the cloakroom where the old fuse box is and new fuse box 1, and then finally to the front door. This bundle of new cables in photo
    145 continues towards the front door and might be partly protected between photo 145 of the middle landing and when it comes out into the cloakroom. Are all these cables
    trunked? Photos 50-55 attempt to show what is inside this new ceiling space. There are 2 new data cables coming out of metal codex trunking, they are taped together, then they
    split up and each wire goes into another metal codex trunking, but between these 3 bits of codex trunking these 2 data cables are unprotected.
    When you look at photo 151 you will notice 3 cables have been laid over the top of the joist on the left hand side by chiselling a channel in the top of that joist, The bundle of new
    grey wires has been put through a new hole bored in the same joist. Where the original floorboard of the old step under these new joists were installed perhaps in 1984, there is
    a missing floorboard. The 2 sets of wire put into the joist and weakening it could both have been put into this missing floorboard hole. Has this weakened the landing so that a heavy
    person going down the stairs could break this joist?
  • B. The new acoustic wall see photo 132 in the dining room sounds hollow and may not be insulated, which we had requested.
  • C. There is a wire in the ceiling for a pendant light in the dining room; no evidence that it is encased in codex when it is wiggled see photo 133, so is the rest of the wiring in that ceiling
    trunked?
  • D. There are holes in the dining room wall below the new ceiling (installed because the old ceiling was old lath and plaster). The wires in the holes are not protected - see photos 40-47.
  • E. An extension cable is plugged into a power socket in the hall. This goes into the front bedroom from the stairs and is joined to a grey wire installed by the electricians and is
    connected to the new fuse box 2 in the wardrobe. The whole of the power supply for the attic and first floor including all lights and sockets and the hot water timer etc all seem to rely
    on this one extension cable. Is this load safe?
  • F. Are they on the same circuit as the lead from the power socket in the cloakroom to be the supply to new fuse box 1 (See photo 28) which we were told supplies power to the cellar,
    dining room and hall? If those 2 power sockets in the old wiring are on the same MCB in the old fuse board, is that safe?
  • G. There is wire from the new fuse box in the cloakroom going through a hole in the wall, but they do not seem to go into the second fuse box, so where do they go? To the kitchen and the
    rest of the ground floor and cellar?
  • H. Is the power and lighting for Chris’s study and the ironing room on the old circuit and fuse box?
  • I. Looking at photos 156, 157 and 158 at the 4 light dimmer switches beside the entry door and inside the lounge we find that the wires are blue, red, green/yellow (is the green/yellow
    the covering of the wire or trunking?) does this mean that the live of the old fusebox has been put with the neutral of the new system? If so, is it unsafe to mix 2 electrical systems
    together for a potential 4 separate light system of which 2 circuits have been installed and are working? 
The Conductor Colours of current IEC is green/yellow for protective earth, blue for neutral and brown for single phase live.Three Phase live is brown for L1, black for L2 and grey for
    L3. “Household wiring does not usually use three-phase supplies and the clash only occurs in three-phase systems. Wiring to the old standard can be detected by use of a red wire.
    The new standard colour code does not use red. Where new wiring is mixed with old, cables must be clearly marked to prevent interchange of phase and neutral.” from
    https://en.wikipedia. org/wiki/ Electrical_wiring_ in_the_United_Kingdom.
  • J. Is it usually safe to mix single phase wiring with three-phase wiring and connect both to Pre-2004 IEE Wired fuseboard? Unless we look at the conductor colours on each switch,
    light and power socket fitted, we will not now whether it is the old wiring, new single phase or new three-phase?
  • K. A new double power socket was installed in the back bedroom between the windows and the bedroom cupboard. The old power socket was taken out, the old wires to it cut off and
    then when the electrical work was completed in that room for the ceiling lights and power sockets, leaving the wall light wires exposed through the newly created insulation? Wall, the
    insulation wall was plastered, the new rectangular section of plasterboard in the ceiling from one end to the other covering where they had cut out that section to put the new wiring in
    and the holes where the old power sockets was plastered. The power for the power sockets in Chris’s study went off. I was told by the plasterer that once the plaster had dried then it
    would be okay within 30 minutes. 4 hours later the electricity to the study was still not on.
    The electricians fiddled and the power came back on. When you look at photo 28, there is a white strip over a circuit breaker on the old fuse board and that fuse is off. Why? Is it safe
    to apply wet plaster to live ends of wire?
    If you look at photos 138-140 there is a wire that comes out of the bottom hole and up to the second hole where it is bent into the hole and pushed down. When you pull it out, its end is
    unprotected. In the second hole is a cut wire with red and black conductor colours. Is that old wire still connected to the old fuse box and live? And it has a new wire which could be
    live pushed past it, which is in contact between its grey external cover. Is this safe?
  • L. If you look at photo 31, you will see an unprotected cable coming from the new fuse board 1 up to the metal codex in the ceiling and another unprotected cable coming from
    that same codex to join the bundle of wires in the hole on the left. 3 other unprotected cables come out above of new fusebox number 1 loop over and into the area screened by the
    plywood and loop up to join the bundle of wires in the hole on the left. Are these the 3 cables that go to the kitchen? What are the 5 cables coming down from the hole connected to, since
    they are not connected to either fuse board or power socket in the room - are they 5 red herrings?
  • M. If you look at photo 28, then there is writing under each of the MCB’s to indicate what circuit that fuses. There are no markings on the new fuse board 1. Is that safe so that if
    an mcb blows that we will not know where the problem is? Is that why when the electricians came to take their tools away on Saturday 20 March at 8:30am, that they wanted to put the
    cover on this fusebox number 1, so that we would not know what each fuse serviced because there was nothing to tell the client?
  • N. From the above, we do know if there has been more than 2 re-uses of old wire in the new wiring and looking at the dimmer switches in the lounge, that if the old fuse box is
    disconnected, then there will be no live wires to that circuit. Is there any safe new wiring in the house and is the old wire left in a safe condition instead of simply being cut off?

    The above is repeated below with its relevant photos:-

The fusebox on the left on a piece of new plywood is a new fuseboard 1 put in by Manderson Electrical Services Ltd.

The top left hand grey box and the 2 grey boxes one on top of the other on the right hand side are the current old fuseboxes installed in 1987.

The 2 smaller fuseboxes below the top left hand grey box on the right hand side are separate fuseboxes for the garage and workshop (pigsty storage area) originally installed by me and amended by a qualified electrician who came to check my wiring.

It is noted that the new Fuseboard 1 is not connected to the main electrical circuit from the main supply to the house, but is connected to a power cable to a 13 amp socket, which leads to a MCB on one of the 3 old fuseboards. This means that the new lights and power sockets which have been connected to new wiring which goes to the new fuseboard 1 are fed by a 13 amp socket for the cloakroom, hall, dining room, cellar and lounge.

When you look at photo 151 you will notice 3 cables have been laid over the top of the joist on the left hand side by chiselling a channel in the top of that joist, The bundle of new grey wires has been put through a new hole bored in the same joist. Where the original floorboard of the old step under these new joists were installed perhaps in 1984, there is a missing floorboard. The 2 sets of wire put into the joist and weakening it could both have been put into this missing floorboard hole. Has this weakened the landing so that a heavy person going down the stairs could break this joist?

B. The new acoustic wall see photo 132 in the dining room sounds hollow and may not be insulated, which we had requested.

C. There is a wire in the ceiling for a pendant light in the dining room; no evidence that it is encased in codex when it is wiggled see photo 133, so is the rest of the wiring in that ceiling
trunked?

 

  • D. There are holes in the dining room wall below the new ceiling (installed because the old ceiling was old lath and plaster). The wires in the holes are not protected - see photos 40-47.

Photo 40

Strange - this is the same lath and plaster system as used in the ceiling, but Manderson Electrical Services Ltd had no problem with making lots of holes through it, when they worried about anthrax from the ceiling of the same construction!!! Milk the client?

  • E. An extension cable is plugged into a power socket in the hall. This goes into the front bedroom from the stairs and is joined to a grey wire installed by the electricians and is
    connected to the new fuse box 2 in the wardrobe. The whole of the power supply for the attic and first floor including all lights and sockets and the hot water timer etc all seem to rely
    on this one extension cable. Is this load safe?
  • F. Are they on the same circuit as the lead from the power socket in the cloakroom to be the supply to new fuse box 1 (See photo 28) which we were told supplies power to the cellar,
    dining room and hall? If those 2 power sockets in the old wiring are on the same MCB in the old fuse board, is that safe?
  • G. There is wire from the new fuse box in the cloakroom going through a hole in the wall, but they do not seem to go into the second fuse box, so where do they go? To the kitchen and the
    rest of the ground floor and cellar?
  • H. Is the power and lighting for Chris’s study and the ironing room on the old circuit and fuse box? According to the conditioning checking electricians, the old ring main from the old fusebox system had gone to my study and then to 1 power socket in the lounge as a single cable and no longer as a ring main. It was attached to a 32amp MCB and because it was no longer a ring main, it was dangerous since the time taken for the MCB to fail might exceed the time taken to shock the person receiving the electricity, so they made the line safer.
  • I. Looking at photos 156, 157 and 158 at the 4 light dimmer switches beside the entry door and inside the lounge we find that the wires are blue, red, green/yellow (is the green/yellow
    the covering of the wire or trunking?) does this mean that the live of the old fusebox has been put with the neutral of the new system? If so, is it unsafe to mix 2 electrical systems
    together for a potential 4 separate light system of which 2 circuits have been installed and are working? 
The Conductor Colours of current IEC is green/yellow for protective earth, blue for neutral and brown for single phase live.Three Phase live is brown for L1, black for L2 and grey for L3. “Household wiring does not usually use three-phase supplies and the clash only occurs in three-phase systems. Wiring to the old standard can be detected by use of a red wire.
    The new standard colour code does not use red. Where new wiring is mixed with old, cables must be clearly marked to prevent interchange of phase and neutral.” from
    https://en. wikipedia. org/wiki/ Electrical_wiring_ in_the_United_ Kingdom.
  • J. Is it usually safe to mix single phase wiring with three-phase wiring and connect both to Pre-2004 IEE Wired fuseboard? Unless we look at the conductor colours on each switch,
    light and power socket fitted, we will not now whether it is the old wiring, new single phase or new three-phase?
  • K. A new double power socket was installed in the back bedroom between the windows and the bedroom cupboard. The old power socket was taken out, the old wires to it cut off and
    then when the electrical work was completed in that room for the ceiling lights and power sockets, leaving the wall light wires exposed through the newly created insulation? Wall, the
    insulation wall was plastered, the new rectangular section of plasterboard in the ceiling from one end to the other covering where they had cut out that section to put the new wiring in
    and the holes where the old power sockets was plastered. The power for the power sockets in Chris’s study went off. I was told by the plasterer that once the plaster had dried then it
    would be okay within 30 minutes. 4 hours later the electricity to the study was still not on.
    The electricians fiddled and the power came back on. When you look at photo 28, there is a white strip over a circuit breaker on the old fuse board and that fuse is off. Why? Is it safe
    to apply wet plaster to live ends of wire?
    If you look at photos 138-140 there is a wire that comes out of the bottom hole and up to the second hole where it is bent into the hole and pushed down. When you pull it out, its end is
    unprotected. In the second hole is a cut wire with red and black conductor colours. Is that old wire still connected to the old fuse box and live? And it has a new wire which could be
    live pushed past it, which is in contact between its grey external cover. Is this safe?
  • L. If you look at photo 31, you will see an unprotected cable coming from the new fuse board 1 up to the metal codex in the ceiling and another unprotected cable coming from
    that same codex to join the bundle of wires in the hole on the left. 3 other unprotected cables come out above of new fusebox number 1 loop over and into the area screened by the
    plywood and loop up to join the bundle of wires in the hole on the left. Are these the 3 cables that go to the kitchen? What are the 5 cables coming down from the hole connected to, since
    they are not connected to either fuse board or power socket in the room - are they 5 red herrings?
  • M. If you look at photo 28, then there is writing under each of the MCB’s to indicate what circuit that fuses. There are no markings on the new fuse board 1. Is that safe so that if
    an mcb blows that we will not know where the problem is? Is that why when the electricians came to take their tools away on Saturday 20 March at 8:30am, that they wanted to put the
    cover on this fusebox number 1, so that we would not know what each fuse serviced because there was nothing to tell the client?
  • N. From the above, we do know if there has been more than 2 re-uses of old wire in the new wiring and looking at the dimmer switches in the lounge, that if the old fuse box is
    disconnected, then there will be no live wires to that circuit. Is there any safe new wiring in the house and is the old wire left in a safe condition instead of simply being cut off?
