    Where can I buy five core cable in which the conductors have the same colours as most central heating two-port zone valves (i.e. grey, orange, blue, brown, earth). Thus is so that I can re-route some cable runs.

    I know I could use five core with other colour schemes, and I can get plenty of that other stuff from local retailers. However I'd prefer the grey/orange/blue/brown/earth if I can get hold of it as it just makes future maintenance just that little bit easier. None of my local plumbers' merchants or electrical merchants seem to have the stuff. I have also had no luck with online retailers. Perhaps I should just give up?

    Why do you need it?
    FFS there are only 2 wires differently coloured and they are switch wires.
    How difficult is it to use Black or white to be orange or grey.

    I'd just use ordinary 5 core and sleeve the connected ends with tape / heat shrink of the correct colour.

    You don't put your location on your profile!

    If you lived close to me then I expect that I could find an old valve and cut the wire off that to give you!
