    Last week, I went tomy local B&Q store and found a leaflet how to select the correct consumer unit next to the shelves with MCBs and Consumer Units etc.

    I looked at one of the leaflets and it does not explain everything properly, no mention of RCBOs and when it comes to trying to identify the type of supply, it just said overhead supplys requiring an RCD consumer unit , No mention of Time Delay RCDs etc.

    Go have a look for yourselves and you will understand what I mean.
