    So bad for this, I suppose that’s what a test is for if it doesn’t show a leak on the test it’s all good.

    The common one is flue test points on boilers.

    Did a gas hob put electric oven back under the hob, and thinking did I tighten connections, but tightness test held up so must of been done automatically without thinking, just can’t remember doing it

    Yep, had this myself when I was renting. Noticed it 5 days after the enginner had done a landlords and service. Boiler was in cupboard in bathroom. I went mad at the guys who had the service contract.

    Yep same thing I do that too but like we said there is a reason for a test if it doesn’t drop it’s fine and tight

    For locking things I say to myself (but out loud) something like "It's Tuesday and I've locked the door" immediately after I've done it. It's the saying it out loud that seems to fix the memory for me. It's important to include the day for obvious reasons.
