I know many cases of people getting ripped off by tradespeople in the Philippines. Hey whats new, its common in the west.. but take a look on some of the forums and you’ll see just how shoddy the work is in this country when it comes to building maintenance, plumbing and electrical work especially.
Check these examples of “workmanship” out I found online – That was a real fix for the plumbing problem. Yep, the plumber did that.
Another example –
THE PROBLEM – exposed wires put together with plain black tape which made sparks for the person concerned when they had a shower. We all know water and electricity don’t mix right?
THE FIX – The electrics were put through a pipe and a twining was suspended from ceiling by placing a screw into the ceiling to keep the unit propped up.Published in
