Iwi checkpoints will also not run at level 2. What do you think of the rules? And what are you looking forward to the most?

What do you think of a new report favouring Manukau Harbour over Northport?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

A new report on the Ports of Auckland favours a new port being built at Manukau Harbour, rather than moving the freight to Northport. The report, which says Manukau will cost less and have less environmental impact, has been criticised by Wayne Brown, whose own report recommended a move north. What do you think?

Heat pump

Rob from Central Whangarei

can anyone suggest an honest Heat pump tech that will give a true appraisal of a heat pump efficiency. Many things are part of the Dark Arts when somewhat of a novice and any one can spin a yarn and pull in an extra quid. Ours is Two years old and never cycles.(heat, to off, to heat. ) Told at purchase. "That will do job" " We have ours on and never turn it off" Ours has never turned off except when turning it off manually. To get installer out costs $110plus, before sighting heat pump.
Warranties are nothing, unless an obvious breakdown. Smoke, or Fallen from Wall, The rest is easy money. Might have been sold a Pup. Just by saying that gives an opening for smoke screen. "The whats a ma jig has failed".
Ideas and suggestions. Thanks.
ooh If I direct a hair dryer in direction of thermostat, while machine is use, that should solve one Question.
