  1. Why do so many people look into how their tree should have been treated and who by after they have had the work done? Seems arse about face to me.
  2. I would already be in reverse gear on this one! "and not look back". Derek.
  3. I've heard and use "crocodile back", seems to fit it.
  4. Which is why wire-free camera's and sound-less motion detectors are becoming the norm! It at least gives you a chance to get some people together and get down there.
  5. Now, that's a challenging wank!
  6. Yes, that works and it's not stupidity.
  7. Yeah! I spent this and I spent that, the best advice and comment I can make based on BITTER experience, is, don't waste your time on small chancey things do it ALL in one. Get in a reputable man, do the house plus wire in the garage/sheds and whatever else in one, use a hard-wired system they cannot block with plenty of sounders. They may still give it a go (they did me) but the word got around and the pro's leave me alone, you will always get the odd crack-head who wants drug money, but, they haven't the tools to get through decent building work. Good luck, Derek.
  8. I would walk away and leave him to it! This is based on thirty years of being caught out trying to help people do cheap jobs. Derek.
  9. No! Read what it says. I run with Fuel Fit in my cans 12 months of the year, towards the slow times I leave things to get low in the tanks and cans, but, I NEVER drain anything. Works for me. Derek.
  10. Use This I Do. It's worked for me for the last 10+ years.
  11. Yes, some of the wisest advice ever!! Work good, business head bad = hard time. Wish I had realised this forty odd years ago. Derek.
