    Bulkhead light for conduit

    Hi all, I'm looking for a metal oval bulkhead that has two entry points (or suitable edges) for 20mm metal conduit to be connected from both ends. They will be horizontally mounted in line with horizontal galvanised conduit. The sort of thing you'd get in an industrial unit. I can find...

    Immersion cut out

    Oldbuffer, maybe you're right and the problem is elsewhere. The new thermostat now cuts out, so I'm guessing this is a plumbing problem, not an electrical one. Is there anything that would cause an increase in temperature enough to trip a cut out? I don't understand how the thermostat can be...

    Immersion cut out

    Yes the stat and cut out have continuity/no continuity when they are below or above limit. The cut out seems to go randomly. Also the supply is fine.

    Immersion cut out

    1. That's correct 2. Yes Hopefully it will do the trick, I don't see how it wouldn't. Unless the new stat is faulty. I've got a TS230 Dual Safety Thermostat as a replacement. Is this ok? All I have to do is wire straight into the new stat, missing out the cut out.

    Immersion cut out

    Thanks for the replies so far and I realise the importance of hot water safety, but I still need to know whether I can replace the thermostat and cutout for a dual thermostat that does both?

    Immersion cut out

    Thermostat is set to the original setting under a dot of paint, about 60 I think. Cuts out at different temperatures

    Immersion cut out

    Hi all, I have a standard vented copper hot water cylinder, less than a year old, with one immersion for hot water only, no boiler. The immersion heater has a cut out in the body of the immersion and a separate thermostat. The cut out keeps tripping for no apparent reason. The thermostat...

    No, I agree with you, I just can't see it conclusively written anywhere.

    Bathroom zone 2

    Just a quick question.. At which point on a light fitting do you measure its height to the floor? I have a light fitting outside the shower enclosure but within 600mm of it. It is fixed to the ceiling at 2.4m The 3 adjustable spotlights on the light fitting are 2.2m from the floor when...

    RCD on TT supply

    That's good advice ericmark. Unfortunately the generator installer isn't local, probably a mistake, but it is what it is. Incidentally, the whole of the outbuilding installation is on a TT system, not just the standby generator.

    RCD on TT supply

    I'm not sure this does apply, as there is a cable from the CU to the ATS and then to the downstream RCBOs. I think having read these posts, that a time delay RCD is the way to go. After all I'm simply trying to avoid one faulty pump from tripping the whole lot (which defeats the object of...

    RCD on TT supply

    There is a separate CU in the outbuilding for lights, power etc, all on their own RCBOs.

    RCD on TT supply

    I'm guessing from the replies that maybe if the cable to the ATS had been armoured or in earthed ducting then we could eliminate the first RCD?
