Consumer NZ answer a query about an electricity retailer:

Annie Bannister from Utilities Disputes

"I recently received a shocking letter from my electricity retailer, stating I owed a small fortune. The letter says that in 2013 my smart meter glitched out and stopped transmitting readings. My power company has sent me an invoice for more than $10,000 for unpaid electricity charges. What are my rights?"

5 Top Tips to keep your drains flowing freely

Master Plumbers NZ - Wellington

Blocked drains are inconvenient and unpleasant to deal with, but here are some things you can do to make them less likely to happen:
1. Scrape food scraps off plates into the bin (not down the sink)
2. Put fat, oil and grease into the bin too
3. Use drain strainers to catch food residue in the kitchen and hair/fibres/soap scum in the bathroom & laundry
4. Run just hot water in sinks and showers at least once a week to prevent a build-up of dirt and residues
5. Only flush The Three P's (pee, poo and paper) down your toilet

If your drain gets blocked, avoid using harsh chemicals as these can damage your plumbing system over time. Contact your local Master Plumber for a professional service: www.masterplumbers.org.nz...
