I changed a socket cover today, when i tested the circuit, i could not take any zs and the meter showed earth fault and reverse polarity. the voltage was 0nly 180v on that circuit as well. I have been round the whole house looking at all the sockets most of the installation is crapy. wires twisted together then 1mm feed from that.
i replaced anything that looked or was dangerous but still never found the fault as didn't have enough time.
I warned the customer that the fault is there and they would never of known unless i told them but it is in need attention asap.
the board is well old and the suppliers earthing is total ****, tails looked only 10mm.
What else can i do other than advise them?
any ideas on the fault?
Am i overlooking something?
got to go back there when they return from holiday i recommended a rewire because of the rubbish wiring i uncovered.
i hate telling clients the bad news get worried they think im tryin to con them,
what would you guys normally do!
