Do Thai electricians have any test equipment at all?

Seem the extra lights and ceiling fans the wife had installed 2 weeks ago were too much for the system.
Now have larger circuit breakers fitted to main board, along with new wiring where necessary,new sub boards, and power points throughout the house.

This one's already posted, but I want to post it again here...
A young British tourist died in Patong early this morning after he accidentally placed his hand on an outdoor, floor-mounted power socket covered with water.
Can you believe that, a power socket on the floor, outdoors! Can you believe the stupidity?!
The stupidity levels displayed in many parts of Asia regarding many different things are quite simply, shocking.

The air-con had a plug that was plugged in a socket and he decided to dismantle it in order to see whether there could be a problem there.
And he was happy showing me how smart he was, he found the problem right away, there were 3 wires in the plug but you only need two.
Not a joke.

All seems okay now as heavier wiring and decent wall plugs installed to take the extra wall fans and lighting. The confusion seems to be that I have 3 phase power into the house as that was the norm with houses that expats built for all the airconditioning.
Still problems in Lao finding a good electrician.I am a bit lucky in that I have a reasonably good local electrican the family can call on if I am not there.
