We've still got no hot water (at least as of yesterday evening) - 10 days and counting.
I've seen a lot of posts on FB from electricians who would charge 150$ or so to bypass the pilot. Sounds a bit like a ripoff for 20min job to me but people are desperate. They also claim it's legal (which it might be) but I wonder if they notify Vector that the ICP is not on controller rate any more. I doubt it.
How does it work then? Can they just simply bypass the pilot or remove the ripple switch?
it is legal, nothing in the electrical regs/act/standards against it, but...........it may breach your power company supply agreement
