I will never understand an installation in which the pipes (electric conduits and pipelines) are crossed, mixed or hung from the ceiling… That, for me, will never be installing. And, of course, the one who does it will not be an installer. It may be a “pipe hanger” or a “cable hanger”, but not an installer.
I’m strict, I admit it. Quite. And very headstrong too, when the goal is to get the job done really well. And in the facilities I like things to be in their place. Although later the plasterer arrives and covers them forever.
Someone once asked me why I was so worried about what was going to be cover. And my answer was that the one who did it, the one who saw it and I, will know that “it” will be hidden there. And better that it never has to be reopened, because then someone from the future will say “made by amateurs”, at the very least.
Another time someone told me that ordering the electric wiring in straight lines, meant spending more material, more cable length and more voltage loss (in the case of power lines, obviously). And that made me calculate what losses we have for each meter of cable “over placed”, imagining the circuit at full load. The result was 0.1%.
That calculation allowed me to calculate how strict I am: 0.1% more than any amateur.
