Dont know ware to post this MOD to let me know and ill move it.
At the moment it appears if something bad is going to happen its going to happen to either Moscow Wolf Or me!
Since the Petchka was installed a month ago i have had no problems and im delighted with it - however last night i was very hard on asleep when the cat came into the bedroom and started mowing and mowing and Mowing.
Eventually i awoke and immediately began to cough, switching the light on i could not see the door 2m away, thick white smoke had filled the house from top to bottom, i got downstairs as quickly as i could - its hard to state how difficult that is when you carnt see the stairs.
Thick smoke was billowing out of the air intake vent of the petchka - something had blocked the chimney.
I immediately, then put the fire out opened every door and window in the house. I do not know the exact cause of he problem yet but thats not the point.
THE POINT IS:
SMOKE DOES NOT WAKE YOU UP!!
I had been breathing thick smoke for i dont know how long.
Just cos there is NO possibility your Petchka can set anything on fire does not mean it carnt kill you and your family - I am 100% convinced i would be dead now were it not for the cat!
Dont be like me, fitting smoke alarms was on my "to do" list, TAKE IT OFF YOUR TO DO LIST AND PUT IT ON YOUR DONE LIST, Practika is open today so DO IT.
To all who have, go test them today.
ADDITIONAL a large Petchka well stoked up for the night takes about 20L of water to extinguish - very difficult to do with a jug in thick smoke; go spend the 20lv and buy a car sized CO2 fire extinguisher - that's all it would have taken.
If your thinking something like - why dint he use a bucket instead of a jug; one thing you dont realize is YOU CAN ONLY USE WHAT YOU CAN SEE and if visibility is 1m then its very difficult, so keep that fire extinguisher in a fixed location so you can feel your way to it in zero visibility!!!!
