Hi, im looking to add a double socket up on the wall behind a tv. I had planed to run the cables up into the attic. However i could only find lighting circuits so cant add it to them. the only other supply as far as im aware is for the shower. I was then going to break into the shower circuit and add a 13A supr outley before the socket. Is this ok or is there a better way? what other circuits in attics would be ok to add 1 double socket to?

no you can't f'ing do that. :eek:

the shower circuit is for use by the shower ONLY!!!! NOTHING else should be wired off it.. :evil:

you must take your new socket from the ringmain... it will be under the floor.. :rolleyes:
