2 ceiling roses were unscrewed per lighting circuit , cooker DP switch, and a couple of sockets, no switches were removed, It was not thorough by any means, no idea what he charged it was for her LL.That sounds like they only tested Dave, without taking any fittings off for inspection or anything like that ? And you'd have to access the ends of circuits such as lights, cooker, immersion heater and shower for RI &R2 measuring. Any idea what they charged for doing all that in around an hour ?
The whole thing, testing inspecting and cert. So first thing I do is inspect CU and Cut-out, then earthing then all fittings for damage and security of fixing. Check the physical tightness of bonding clamps and labels. Then remove fittings usually starting as 25%, more if there are signs of poor wiring like no earth on metal boxes, poorly wired sockets with no earth sleeving, remove electric shower cover and switch to check for thermal damage. Then the testing. Everything unplugged, noting neons for IR testing. Do ring final circuit tests. R1/R2 on every circuit, just attach L to earth bus bar for each circuit, use the plug device for sockets for R1/R2 this also ensures continuity of cpc and polarity. If present also check function of emergency lighting, not full three hour test though. I use my ipad as I go to note all test results and this forces me to do everything as I go. Last three bed I did was 6 hours. That house had a loft ladder so easy to inspect it quickly cables flopping all over the air space in there very poor wiring.to do the tests or does that include paper work
