Re: double pole MCBs in consumer unit

As long as you have a 30mA rcd up front you will be fine. A common double pole mcb would be an rcbo which is an mcb and rcd combined. Problem is they are slightly taller so a bit of a squeeze. Current regs state you cannot mix a match brands so you would still not comply. http://www.parkelect.co.uk/...

Re: Electricians question

As long as it is outside 600 from the edge of the bath/shower enclosure then you can have the spur inside the bathroom. If you have just fitted it though and all the circuits inc lights are not on a 30mA rcd then you need to install supplementary bonding. ( link all pipe work and electrical connecti...

Re: Devon roof help please

New gas struts will sort out the roof staying up problem. You could cut some fabric into small strips and glue them on to replace the duct tape. I would redrill the holes in the roof slightly bigger and use a bigger rivet. They are the weak point of the roof. :ok

Re: Best thing to remove scuff marks from beige vinyl doorcards?

I marked my cushions as I was loading them up from my upholsterer and it was him that used white spirit in front of me. Says it is the best thing for it.

Re: Hook up - can i use a toastie maker?

An RCD will not make any difference to overload. It is the mcb that will protect from that.
