Cooker socket change


Postby SWEEP » Wed Aug 01, 2007 10:52 am

I am just about to have my kitchen re-plastered and want to replace the existing cooker socket with a neon indicator type and also to change the pattress from a metal one to a plastic one. Is it OK to fasten a plastic one to the brickwork please and then plaster around it?

Sorry if this is a dumb question!
