    Is this a job for your own property?

    Is the basin in a bathroom?

    If so, what zone is the light fitting in?

    Remember there are no zones round a basin.

    Use Extra Low Voltage if you're in doubt.

    thanks for clarification on zones ,, appreciated ...... thats why i advised basin/cabinet about 1 meter away from bath/shower the cabinet is going above the basin... the toilet/pan is between the bath/shower and the basin
