    You mentioned in another thread that you do not like Add A-Zones. I have installed two lately and "so far / so good" but I know they have only been in service for a couple of months.

    Why do you not like them / what should I be on the look out for down the road?

    (I am in no way being critical of your comment / I am just trying to learn!)

    Thanks / Regards,

    Mex

    They are fine, I use them when backed against the wall. I do not like doing things that would lead the next guy to service the system to think we hacked it. I just like running another wire.

    has anyone ever tried using one of those "invisible-fence-for-dog's-wire-laying-machines" for adding new zone wire?

    Too shallow even in conduit just like phone, cable and fibre optics. We've hit them all. :dizzy:

    This is the reason why I always try to do the best job possible with all aspects of service and installation.

    I want the next tech or competitor to realize the "guy before me" does a better job than I do..


    Does that make sense? its been a long day.

    Thanks for all of the replies!

    When it is a "bad wire," I do everything I can to repair/replace it.

    My recent two situations were where it was a couple of hundred feet back to the clock and no spare wires (Was not multi-strand. All single conductors.) in well established yards.

    I very much respect your desire to "do it the right way!"

    Regards,

    Mex
