VPhase launch training video

VPhase has launched its first technical training video. I commissioned this project and was recommended to the Navigator Productions, in Kent. They’re the team behind the Learning Lounge range of technical training videos. They were extremely professional and their technical background and knowledge proved invaluable, with their insight helping us explain the technical concepts in an easy to understand manner.

Please note that installing a VPhase voltage optimisation device should only be attempted by a qualified professional. This is not a DIY solution, as it involves hard wiring the unit into the mains power in the home.  For more information about VPhase, please visit the web site:

Great idea – home made paper plant pots!

I came across this video today and thought it was a great idea to be green, save money and recycle unwanted paper – make your own plant pots!
