    lol i do the same - annoys me that this isn't a standard. like anything there is an issue have to shut off the whole house (except the toilet that's the only thing that seems to come with a semi decent shut off valve standard)

    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?

    Mind the speed ISP

    you on MTS already so no cost to change packages- its moving from one ISP to another or first time joining there is an activation fee (not installation this is another fee as well) - this is what i'm referring to - its a cost from Vumatel levied on all ISP - they in turn absorb or pass on the...

    Mind the speed ISP

    just FYI - before you switch - MTS never used to charge a connection fee on Vumatel now they do (like since May 2021) so add that into whatever calculation you do before switching

    Why load shedding and not brown outs?

    South Africans cant tell the difference between a power failure and load shedding, you expect them to be able to handle and understand what to do in the case of a brown out.
