    But it is within arms reach sorry for the poor sparkie who has to trace a neutral fault...at least the DB is labelled.

    My view of your electrical installation ...it has got so bad that you cant tell the difference between the alarm installer ...the cctv installer or the sparkies mess ...they all just as bad.

    If I quoted R3000 to change a 20A 1pole cb in a db similar to this would it be over priced? What would the recommended price be as per the ECA? The customer warned me the slightest scratch on the cupboard, and it needs to be replaced. This also needs to-be done after hours.

    Oh the joys of being self employed. A customer like that I do not need. Probably wants credit as well ... know the type. I would actually quote more to make sure I don't get the job ......
