good eve all, my first post.
so.. .we have a single socket outlet by the bed, which im changing for a double, i also wanted a double the other side of the bed, but have discovered the exhisting socket has already been 'spured' so i cant touch that. the two things i want to know is can i put a junction box on the ring (ovbiously not the spur) to get my new double socket and also how can i find out where the spur goes to. . is it possiible it was put in when the house was buit because theres no sign of it being added afterwards, ie no new plastering no cut floor boards. if i can add a junction box then i dont realy care were it goes. .
Hi Gary, your single could have been taken from a JB or more likely from another skt on ring which will have 3 sets of wires in it.
However as you say if you put a JB in the main ring then no point in tracing it.
BTW this is one of the few instances that do NOT have to be Part-p reported, but presuming old wiring in red/blk. & new in brn/blue it is required to label JB and con. unit with statement warning of mixed system.
As Steven says there is a project on here showing how it's done with a 30A 3 term JB,
