Ensure standard electrical installations

It appears that most houses are highly susceptible to catch fire as the installations that supply the mains appear to be very shoddily fixed and risky.

It appears that most houses are highly susceptible to catch fire as the installations that supply the mains appear to be very shoddily fixed and risky.

It is in this regard that standard measures in conformity to the institute of electrical engineers (IEE) should strictly be adhered to, in order to deter calamities that would result from the same.

Another irregularity that is characterized by the seemingly negligent Electrogaz, is the case of sagging high tension current wires that are in contact with nearby trees.

There are also many connecting points along the ground wiring where insulation is done through the use of polythene bags instead of using T or Y joint boxes, I think some thing urgent should be done to address such technical problems.

There is another problem which is common within many houses whereby cables used while carrying out wiring don’t conform to the regulations.

Example of wires of cross sectional area of 1.5 sq mm are used in the supplying sockets, whereas in actual fact they should have used wires with 2.5sq mm in supplying sockets, as required by IEE.

The wires with 1.5sq mm are meant for supplying electricity to the lighting systems only; therefore Electrogaz should do some thing to rectify this danger.
