This just one of our customer story “DIY GONE WRONG” His name is Mr Low. We have also sought his permission to share his story. He hopes that we can use his account let people aware of this. On Sep 2017 Mr Low’s wife keeps grumbling about him for two weeks on a broken electrical socket. Finally, he found some time on a Saturday afternoon to replace the faulty Socket. He searches on the internet and manages to find some “DIY tips”.
He hurried to the nearby hardware shop to purchase an electrical socket. Mr Low bought a packet of chicken rice with a drumstick to reward himself for DIY. His wife saw him coming back with the electrical socket got worried. Mrs Low asked: “since when you know electrical work”. He replied: “I learn it 20 min ago from the net, It simply remove and put back“. Like what written on the internet. Everytime you also learn cooking from youtube. His wife reminded him you to off the main switch before replacing doing the work. After 20 min Mr Low manages to replace his socket. He was delighted to switch on and test his work. It was the first time and the last time flip the main circuit breaker again. Boom he got a shock of his life. Mr Low: “is sound like an explosion”.His wife running out of the bedroom asking what happen? He replies I don’t know.
Mr Low contacted us for emergency help. Our electrician Thomas reaches Mr Low house in a short time frame. Thomas restores the power and replaces all the faulty parts. Explain to Mr Low that he has done a wrong wiring. The colour code is different from the internet result he searches. The total repair cost more than the original repair. Mr Low was very grateful that we help him to solve his problem and he didn’t get someone injured. Mrs low joking said “See la you don’t now don’t do now pay so much more, lucky you never die”
