Captain Cook fountain brought down by “electronic value”

By johnboy - 17 December 2012 16

The National Capital Authority have given notice that the beloved fountain is not working:

The Captain Cook Memorial Jet is currently out of operation due to a fault with an electronic value.

The National Capital Authority will advise when more information is available.

Once suspect an electronic valve might actually be to blame, but given the litany of miserable failure that is the NCA who can say?

Here’s a screenshot for posterity:

One suspects “Once suspect” is incorrect.

Are these the same people responsible for Bvlgari?

And Evropa in the Canb Centre?

The electronic value? Last time I checked it was 240 volts …

I seriously doubt the Jet runs of 240v, single phase, that you would power a kettle from.

The NCA have now tweeted that the problem is, in fact, a valve.

Re-read the original post. I stand guilty of second guessing.

Just guessing that the proofreaders have again gone missing in action.

Value = Valve

That blasted carbon tax! Now the NCA can’t even afford to pay the bills.

Put the letters out to tender, a vowel was cheaper than a consonant.
