    Please tell me what this switch is for?

    Many thanks for the reply. I will do that test tomorrow. The switch must have been there for umpteen years! I was hoping that if I do decide not to use it I could finish the 2 red cables like the 2 black ones and put a blanking plate on the front. Will that be OK? Mick

    Radiator on it's side??

    Hello I'm replacing a couple rads and changing the position of them. I was looking at 2 of those 'designer' long thin rad's but the prices are mental. So I was thinking about getting a standard long thin rad and putting it on it's side, giving me a tall/thin radiator. Well that's the...

    Hello I want to add an extra double socket. I will be running a spur from the closest socket. The only issue is the laying of the cable to the new socket. If I chase out the walls it's quite a distance. However, if I chase out the concrete floor it will be a slick job. So my question is...
