To return to my recurring theme of rambling letters that have missed the point printed in the local press, a long letter in this weeks “Euro Weekly” about a gentlemen down in Cadiz who installed his own gas oven and gas boiler which then – predictably – exploded due to his dodgy gas connections. Much pain, suffering, destruction of his house and three months in hospital, etc. Finishes with an impassioned plea to everybody to please don’t try to save a few pennies by installing gas appliances yourself and to use an authorised installer.
Sorry – please? Sorry old chap, but it’s illegal to install gas appliances yourself, (and carry out electrical installations) for this very reason!
