Why ?? Is it because the cable on the right isn't earthed ??

Hi Geoff,
horrendous!
I've seen mains wiring that is equally as bad!
[edit] Just done a frame grab of it from an old VHS video recording!
It's a stick of wood separating the 3-way join on the conductors of some out-doors mains lighting wiring
Yes and it's within touching distance!
Cheers, K.

My woes at my daughter's new place just do not stop!.

This home belonged to an "IT person". He was supposed to have sent >R 12 000 on getting his home CoC compliant. Says something for the state of the wiring.

BUT the work done was pathetic. I am "undoing" bad workmanship as I go along and find things.


Yesterday I was sorting out an issues with the Telephone drop wires touching the neighbours electric fence.

Last week it was sorting out the cabling for an XV decoder in a second lounge. Still have to move some cables but have removed all the lousy RF distribution and run 2 cables from the antenna to both decoder points. Awaiting a decision about what RF they want where.
Removed the TV feed to the LAPA. Imagine, an HDMI cable and a RCA cable just going through a hole in the wall and concreted into the paving! No duct.

This weekend it will be to sort out the UPS power feed to the garage door opener!

Have had to tidy up the CCTV DVR wall mounted rack and that cabling! Coax cable BNC connectors crimped on with pliers!

Now run into an issue with a poorly implemented UPS power system. The system is fancy! BUT because of the light load found in a normal home installing a typical UPS setup suitable for a small business is just crazy!
