[quote="The Renovator"]Scottish Power are coming out tonight. By the sounds of it they will just do what ever is necessary to get the reading to what it should be.
I asked the sparky who fitted originally the board about R.C.D . PROTECTION and he said he left it out because I have an old house and in such circumstances fitting R.C.D tends to make things trip all the time! Are you saying, however, that if I get my current problem sorted out then R.C.D protection won't be necessary?
If it is necessary then is it just an upgrade to the fuse box or does it entail upgrading every socket in the house (excuse my ignorance again).[/quote]
NOT FAR AWAY FROM SORTING THINGS OUT.
