Anyone know of a good one in Pattaya? My condo has really bad lighting so i want to add some more to the ceiling. Need to add a back splash in the kitchen so a tile man recomedation would help also.

I often wonder if there is anything such as a real, trained and licensed electrician in Pattaya and not just a handyman type?

If that's what you're looking for, I would go to a construction site where an obviously high quality building is under construction and find out who is doing the electrical work.

For typical home electrical work, I'll be sticking with Doon. Any time I've had an electrical problem I've always had Doon do the work and his work has been just fine. I have no idea what kind of training he's had or whether he even has any licenses, but when I watch him and his staff work, they certainly seem to know what they're doing and anything he's ever done for me has satisfied me.

Thanks Gaybutton, I'll call him. I know many things aren't grounded here in Thailand, so I'm nervous plugging things in.

No need to be. I've had no problems. I don't know anyone who has. If you are seriously concerned about it, Doon can set up grounding posts for you.

I've used Mr. Doon as recommended by GB
He's excellent and also has an electrician to assist if needed.

Assuming you have a modern system, the RCD should trip as soon as 30 mA flows through you, so I shouldn't worry about that.

From what I've seen of Thai electrics, DIY looks like an attractive option.

He did a great job. Had 4 down lights and 4 track lights put it. All done in three hours. I paid 3k baht and tipped the two men, 200 baht, and the women 100. The only problem was his first drill hit a duct and now i have to repair that.

I put two shelves in below the track lights and one is blocking some of the light. Mistake on my part but i dont want to remove it. Big bang for buck getting lighting, a must imo. The lighting sucked before getting this done.
