  • Thai Electrics

    Scares the sh1t outa me.

    Are you handy enough to undertake your own electrics, or do you always use a qualified thai electrician to do your electrical work.

    Lots of instances around where people have been killed in thailand by electricity, that could have been avoided by implementation of improved standards.

    I do all my own electrics. Far less dangerous than having most Thai "electricians" do it.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

      Not just in the home, but when I walk down the sidewalk I am continually avoiding all the low strung balls of knitting of electric cables that seem to be everywhere.

        At least here you never have to ask why, during a light breeze or six drops of rain, your lights start to flicker and your internet connection no longer works... Electric city se-pah-get-tiiii !

            Whilst I agree it looks and probably is atrocious it has to be said that we have fewer outages here than in bloody Darwin.

              One of the more riskier places looks to be in an electric shower cubicle.

              Lots of fatalities due to poor earthing and circuit protection.

                Used to do my own, though I am not all that good, learned my "skills" during my squatting years in London, but a few years ago the village standard has risen several notches, seems one of the locals did a proper training.

                  Sure. It's a rare item, but there are a decent handful [Thai professionals] that are properly trained and are quite fit for anything that you might throw at them.

                    I was wondering about this. My Inlaws house does not have grounds. When i plug in the computer you can feel the static on the machine. Charge it on the floor now. How hard is it to "ground" a house system. I swear here only 2 wires to the sockets. Also new water heater in shower 2 wires only.

                      Darwin, London, Thailand...

                      Hayseed idiots.

                      It's all about standards. American standards. Get with the program you provincial 'tards or suffer the consequences of your lax standards.

                        Then get with the plot and convert to 220- 240 volt.

                            So the American standard toilet is built with British standard specs. I am about to use an American standard toilet soon, to have an kiwi standard dump, so that makes me happy, happy & happy.

                              I suggest you get that shower earthed pronto. If it develops an electrical fault as it is then it will electrocute whoever is using it and they will DIE! At the bare minimum you need to have a consumer unit with an RCD that has a connection to an outside earth before even contemplating using one of those shower units. The same goes for a washing machine or, indeed, anything that has water associated with it. Wet skin will lower your resistance by 10-20 times and what was dangerous becomes too risky to think about.
