Hi, just finishing getting my 200l 3hp compressor going and at the moment its on a 3 pin plug.What are the options of upgrading, ie the power sockets in the garage are part of a ring main for the sockets in downstairs of the house on a 32amp mcb, can i just change the 3 pin socket for a 16 amp socket and rely on the breaker as protection, i fear not as this would not protect the cable would it?Do i need to get a spark to wire a new cable to a separate type c mcb?thanks.
