    Data Cables with Power Cables

    Is it ok to install an RJ45 socket and a 13A socket in opposite sides of a dual galvanised box? Does the galv box provide sufficient separation? What distance does the Cat5e and 2.5 T&E need to be when run down the wall?

    Feeding Detached Garage

    It is ok to feed a garage from 2.5mm T&E on 20A MCB which is run in conduit to detached garage 4M away with conduit along fence. Then terminate into old type fuseboard with 5A & 15A circuits for sockets and light? Does it need seperate earth? Or is earth on T&E ok?

    Signing off my work.

    £350 to sign work off? pretty expensive i think! NICEIC will charge around £1000 for initial membership registration and 1st yrs membership, so that may be good option. You will need calibrated test equipment though and all relevant regs - onsite guide etc etc

    PAT Water Damaged Appliances

    He's not asking if its safe to use, he's asking if the lifespan will be effected??? Or will it dry out and be in the same condition as prior to water exposure? He just dosnt want to have tools pack up on him a few months down line thats all!

    PAT Water Damaged Appliances

    If a garage has flooded and the drills etc have been exposed to water, the drill not designed for exposure to water ie no suitable IP rating for this, then would this not fail an inspection before testing on a PAT test? If the items have been exposed to the water would i be right in saying they...

    Commercial Sockets

    The premises are small but it may be difficult to get feed back to DB for their own circuit as would need to go through concrete floors back to DB. The idea of RCD sockets in conduit may be only option.

    Commercial Sockets

    I'm a Domestic Spark so would appreciate a little advice from a commercial spark out there... If adding x2 extra sockets in a office kitchen, do these sockets need RCD protection? What if they are labelled for kitchen appliances only? If putting existing circuit on RCBO wouldnt this create...

    Protecting meter tails

    Are meter tails meant to be protected by RCD if buried beneath plaster? Meter tails need to be run from outside meter housing to CU in utility but utility will be plastering, buring tails - so if they are not RCd protected its against regs aint it? But if protect with RCD will have against regs...
