    Most pubs would have a metalclad 32amp double pole isolator, located by the unit.

    With a large 25mm stuffing gland for the flex.

    Sorry! Mind you, I did get the rating plate bit in on an edit, but that was before I saw that you'd asked the same thing.

    No, it needs to be on it's own radial circuit.
    Best call an electrician in.

    I think you accidentally typed confidence when you meant competence.

    Although this is rapidly turning into a bash-the-OP thread, I think there's good reason for it. You have just admitted yourself to having a lack of confidence, and what you've said here doesn't exactly inspire a lot of confidence in you either, so perhaps that's a wake up call? If you're really serious about getting this glass washer wired in, you need to employ the services of an electrician.
