Hi, i'm in the process of installing a new kitchen, i'm going to get an electrician to connect the cooker to the CU, but i've run the cable under the floorboards to the CU and the cooker ready for him (or her!) to make the connections.
I'm second-guessing myself, but i've run 6mm2 cable from the kitchen to the garage (10m) and the cable's come up short by about 2 meters.
Can i extend it using a 45a junction box or does it need to be a single cable stright through.
BTW, the proposed junction box would be in the garage and accessible.
Thanks for the response, can you explain what an expox resin filled joint is, You're probably right, just to go and buy more cable might be the easiest, it was a real nightmare to run the cable though and i'd like to avoid having to do it again.
Is there any other method of extending this cable?
