Do You Really Need an Electrician?

There are a LOT of misconceptions about electrical work. Like who can legally do what and do I have to employ an Electrician.

Trust me when I say even electricians argue this point!
Sometimes (believe it or not) down to lack of knowledge and sometimes because they insist that only “qualified” people can do any electrical work. They say this because they do not want to loose business. I get it but alas, for them at least this is not correct.

Electrical Work - FAQs

Here is what you DO get.

  • You get the grey box, which contains the thermostat and connectors.
  • You get the two short hoses that connect to YOUR outside Hot & Cold taps.
  • You also get free delivery and set up in the TAMESIDE AREA by me – Tameside Handyman.


What you do NOT get is the final hosepipe. Most people will already have a useable hosepipe.

You do NOT get the outside taps, which you need to connect “My Dog Shower” to!

I can install a Hot or Cold – or BOTH outside taps subject to conditions set out here – Outside Taps This service must be booked separately.

I have tried to keep the price as low as I can based on the cost of (ever increasing) parts and taking into account my labour costs.

The price is currently £130

I have always said, well yes I can but I don’t. The reasons I give are cost and practicality.

PRACTICALITY – more often than not I am installing under a kitchen sink.
This is challenging enough sometimes, due to space and being able to work around pipes and other such obstacles.

COST – Due the materials and labour it would, for many be too costly.

So after some thought I figured there must be a way to combat the objections of cost & practicality.

PRACTICALITY – To address the space issue I figured it would be best to use the space on the exterior wall.
Much more space there and no obstructions.

COST – Whilst there are parts and labour to take into account these can be fixed.
That helps me and YOU. 
We both know exactly what it will cost with no nasty surprises.


Well as I say, and make it very clear when I am installing an outside hot tap – They are HOT !

Sounds obvious but if it is not temperature controlled then, just like it would inside the house it can, and will scald!! So if you are planning on using it for washing the dog you need to be able to control the temperature.

Now there is a way to sort of mix the hot and cold using a hose pipe and joining them together. BUT, this does not “control” the temperature. It just mixes the water. It can be very difficult to maintain a proper mix to maintain anything close to a suitable temperature using this method.

Also, another reason is that if you just use the hot tap to fill the pool or jacuzzi for example, you run the risk of damaging your hose pipe, especially the newer non kink flexi hoses. These can be damaged at too higher temp.

These are great for cleaning your dogs outside BUT also great for such things as filling hot tubs as it is quicker and more cost effective to use warm/heated water than trying to heat cold water using electric. And what about cleaning the car and paddling pools etc. etc.

The short answer is YES. You need a Hot & a COLD outside tap.

Furthermore they need to be within a reasonable proximity to each other. It is no good having one tap on the back of the house and the other on the front for example.

I can, in most cases install one or both of these taps if you do not currently have either of them.
