I know, from the heading your thinking toilet flush. This is the electrical section. Bear with me! :wink:
Last year I had my garden landscaped, and at that time I had electricians in to install a power supply from the house to a new cabin at the bottom of the garden. From the house the feed exits the end of the kitchen into a small outside loo, down the garden, picking up 3no garden lights and then into the cabin. I now want to add a light into the outside loo and power to an electronic sensor flush device for the loo. There is a fused switch in there already for turning the garden lights on and off. This fused switch sits direclty above a small box which the main armoured cable enters into from the garden.
Will I be OK just wiring into this switch to feed another small wall light in the loo and the loo flush device, so that in essence when I switch the swicth it turns turns the garden lights, loo light and loo flush.
The loo flush device is just a live, neutral, and I need to add in an earth.
seems ok, main thing is the fuseswitch fuse size, as long as the fuse is rated lower than the cables can carry, IE 1.0mm cable max fuse 10A
I presume you are going to connect to the out going term of the fused connection unit/fused spur/ fused switch u refered to.
Thanks for the reply. The fuse is 5A. The cable I will be using is 1.5mm Max 20A. Thats OK isn't it?
As for connecting to the outgoing term. I haven't actually taken the front off the switch yet. Will there just be markings for incoming/outgoing? Any tips if not?
