Grooves up or down? Decking debate settled

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

The great kiwi deck, every home should have one. But there's a decking debate raging in DIY and Reno circles: Should the grooves go up or down?
We think we've settled the argument here.

This is why we have a water shortage.

Jay from New Lynn

In my little neighbourhood alone, in the last few years, 6 x 3 bedroom houses have been replaced by 34 x 4 or 5 bedroom dwellings plus a 100 child industrial sized childcare centre with 3 floors of 2 person, shoebox sized boarding house rooms on top, with yet more single house sections earmarked for intensive developments. Developers should be charged a lot more to pay for all the extra infrastructure and water needed.

Name and Shame....then fine $$$$.

David from Glen Eden

Obey just a few simple rules and we'd be fairly safe. As it is just one or two selfish people with either little intelligence and/or no respect for anyone go spreading the bug. They have no excuse and we should not be protecting their names with numbers. Anyone who deliberately ignores the simple rules should be named and shamed AND fined. Heavy fines were applied in Taiwan for just not wearing a mask. If self discipline is lacking it should be enforced. We are too darned soft. We are now in danger of going to lock down 4 and even becoming a little America and just because of a few who couldn't care.
