    Vumatel Price change

    How to tell when LPG gas cylinder should be refilled?

    yes you would think but wait till there is a shortage and / or you run out on the day when your regular dealer doesn't have stock and you stuck looking around. Trust me its better to have 2 9Kg isn't big doesn't take up extra space.

    Geyser question

    simple as everyone said no non return valve installed on geysers. i imagine this happens whenever water is cut off - people end up inadvertently emptying their geysers

    Why load shedding and not brown outs?

    Not exactly what you suggesting but city power tried something a few years back (Think there was an article and thread about it on MYBB) - they would signal the resident and they would advise them to lower consumption by x amount if they did they would not be load shed - if they didn't then...
