    Just some friendly advise expect some load shedding in the very near future. Get those battery backups, battery air pumps or hydrogen peroxide.

    *******disclaimer: this is not officially from Eskom at all so please don't phone them telling them I told you :) - I just know what's lying ahead :) ******

    Just woke up to no power, and apparently it's been off since 4 this morning. Had a quick glance at the tank and it looked fine but worried as hell.
    @Perky pets superstore, David do you have any battery airpumps, what the price?
