Keep an eye on the timer.

Just noticed our white meter timer (cheaper electricity) is now SEVEN hours slow..
That means the water immerser has to be set to GMT -4 and sundry other things we thought we were doing right, weren't.
However, the bonus is, we have until 14.30 every day to do the heavy stuff.
(The man who changed the meter recently didn't want to reset the timer as he would have to do extra reporting associated with the job, but it wasn't as bad then as it is now.)
Sounds as though I need to keep a closer eye on it.
Another thought - if this is a common occurrance, it's no wonder we have to import during the peak times. It's their own fault.

When I had one of those things I was advised that judicial removal of the clock fuse to bring the timing in line with my usage and an underfloor connection to the rest of the house might save a bob or two - not that I ever stooped to such behaviour, you understand.
