Common Problems

There are many common problems that we come across in Phuket that can be rectified and made safe.

Installation of RCBO's which will cut out the electric if a problem occurs preventing lethal shocks.

Installation of solid copper Earth Rods - Most earth rods installed in Thailand are solid metal with copper plating which breaks off and rust comes through meaning the earth no longer exists.

The linking of Neutral and Earth should not be connected together, but for some reason they are. The reason this is bad, is because if there is a fault at the transformer where Neutral becomes live, everything that is earthed in your house will now become live, so touching things that are metal can result in a fatality.
