Welcome to The PAT Tester (South Wales)

Providing a Portable Appliance Testing service primarily for voluntary sector organisations, community centres, small businesses, housing associations, stall holders, the performing arts, church halls, private landlords, residential care home owners and many others in South Wales: Swansea, Neath, Port Talbot, Bridgend, Brecon, Cardiff, Pontardawe, Llanelli, Ammanford, Llandeilo, Carmarthen, Cross Hands, Gower, Kidwelly, Llandovery, and surrounding areas. I also have a great deal of experience PAT Testing for supported-housing projects, including residential properties for men and women in recovery and safe houses.

My name is Bob Grainger. Trading as CompuTech Computing Services, I provided computer support for the voluntary sector, small businesses and individuals for more than twenty years up until 2012. I now concentrate on providing a PAT Testing service only, and have been doing so since 2006. I am fully qualified in PAT Testing (City and Guilds 2377-200: Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment and 2377-100: Management of Electrical Equipment Maintenance). I have carried out many hundreds of PAT Testing jobs, and have tested tens of thousands of items.

For your peace of mind, please note that I have full Public Liability Insurance, and that I am also CRB-checked (Enhanced, January 2011, all clear). Click here to view my Proof of Insurance Liability document and click here to view my Enhanced CRB-Check document

I charge £1.25 per item tested (no VAT). The minimum charge is £60 per site (negotiable for same-day multiple sites with few items), but this does include up to the first forty-eight items at that site. There are no additional charges, not even travel expenses. See 'What do you charge for PAT Testing?'.

“It shall be the duty of every employer to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare at work of all his employees.” The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974

I am City and Guilds qualified in PAT Testing, and fully insured.
