    I have an inflatable hot tub that is showing E6 fault Nothing wrong with the hot tub itself but I think the problem is a heater pump

    Can a registered/qualified electrician let another person who he claims is an electrician to do an electrical job in my property and self certify the electrical job when he was not supervising the friend/apparently an electrician the whole time but only in the morning telling him what has to be done and returning hours later when his friend has finished the electrical job? Also, he refuses to provide me any information if his friend is qualified and registered as a qualified electrician to do the job? Thank you.

    I live in a part of the UK that is susceptible to flooding. In the event of floods, what steps should I take in terms of the electrics? Should I turn off the power? If it’s not something I should myself, is there any way to have emergency workers come out to help with the electricity during such a scenario? Is it best to just evacuate?

    Hi If my electrician can’t get the works booked and completed by the time the domestic certificate runs out mid July as shortened due to two advisories is the property insurance invalid or is it that is is okay as long as works booked and ongoing . My certificate is one for a landlord tenancy that I thought was valid for 5 years until 2022

    I would like to replace my current Triton T80si pumped (8.5kW) with a Mira Elite SE (9.8kW). The current Triton shower wiring seems to be 6mm (tbc) on a 40A MCB (30 mA protected). I need to know if the Mira shower can be installed and if any of the electric setup needs work.

    I tried to replace a pull cord, I cut the old one off and tried to unscrew the socket to loop the Bree string through, realised after it was much more complicated! I unscrewed a smaller white socket inside the socket and the lights went out and I accidentally dropped it with little pieces everywhere and have no idea how I can reattach the pull cord. Probably just need a new one? Issue is now the light was still on whilst it fell out and i can’t isolate the bathroom and turn that off only.

    My old Everest Garage Door 2004 will not close when I press the switch & the fob. It goes to the top of the frame & no further with the light flashing. It still has power. What could be stopping the electric garage door from closing?
