I need to add a new socket as a spur on my ring main - something I've done before, but this one needs to run for a longer length before the new socket. According to your article on doing this there's a limit to the total length of cable for the ring main + spur:
"Please also check the rules very carefully for ring mains and radial circuits. You are limited in the length of cable you are allowed to use in both circuits and long spurs could make you exceed the limit. If this is the case you are asking the circuit to use much more energy than the circuit is designed for. More energy = more heat and cables can catch fire."
Can you tell me what that total length is please so I can check I don't exceed it ?
Many thanks, John.
