SWITCH OFF ELECTRICITY AT THE MAINS BEFORE WORKING ON EXISTING CIRCUITS
To fit a waste disposal unit, a fused connection unit needs to be fitted to a spur from the ring main. This connection can be made using an existing socket or from a junction box on the ring main, (see Adding a spur to a ring circuit from a socket and Adding a spur to a ring circuit from a junction box respectively).
Fit a fused connection unit with a 13amp fuse above work surface level (see Fitting an Fused Connection unit). From the fused connection unit run a length of 1mm2 cable to a flex outlet to which the waste disposal unit will be connected. This is a general guide intended to complement NOT replace any manufacturer’s installation instructions.
