comment What is this red powder under my carpets?
Thanks. It was only in one spot in one room. But it did certainly stick the pad to the floor.

comment Can dimmable (triac) LED bulbs be used on a motion sensor switch without neutral wire?
Thanks. I should probably rephrase my question to - is there any way to use the sensor I listed with LED bulbs without installing a neutral wire? some people have mentioned things like putting an incandescent light somewhere along the line, but I haven't been able to make sense of that advice. It seems to me that all I need is something inline before the LED that deals with the trickle power.

comment Can dimmable (triac) LED bulbs be used on a motion sensor switch without neutral wire?
Hi, I edited to reduce confusion. Also, the switch only runs inline to the live wire. So it has a red wire coming in and a white wire leading to the light. The light then has a white wire coming in (live) and a black wire leading out (neutral). The ebay seller says it's discontinued - but only for his own store. They still sell them everywhere. Especially since you need a neutral wire for the switch and most houses don't have them as I understand.

Thank you - not only have you shown me exactly what was going on there but the diagram above shows me exactly how to rewire it for the newer modern light fitting. Thanks!

The region is NSW. The ground is two grounds from two cables wrapped together with a little strip of green sheeth around it.

comment Is it safe to install this hot water tank from ebay?
so you're basically questioning the safety of the actual unit, not my installation plans? they've sold hundreds of these units on ebay with 99.7% positive feedback... so I'm happy to assume that the unit itself is safe. I'm just wondering about my installation plans.
