Nuwanda:Back to your install - I would have instaled the hybrid cable into a section of electrical conduit, from the ETP to the vent (and possibly under the floor), to protect it from the elements (for its long term stability).
Thanks for that. Since Chorus is subbing to Downer, you think there's any point in asking them to apply that conduit at least into the vent?
Actualy the installers will be subcontractors of Downer (Employees of Downer and their subcontractors, working on the chorus contract, are normaly only identified as being 'from Chorus') - they wont come back and install a section of conduit now as it will mean rework for no money (unless a Quality Team Member requests it) and your service will have to be disconnected. - if the cable breaks down in the future (3-5 yrs)it will not be an expence on you to have it replaced but on Chorus
