I am looking to replace the existing bathroom pull cord light switch by a waterproof (IPX5) one, as recommended by the regulations.
Trouble is, after much searching I cannot find a supplier and am now wondering if they actually exist.
The existing switch is RCD protected and outside of zones 0,1,2 but too close to a movable shower head for my liking.
The switch is ceiling mounted but just 90cm from a flexible-hose type shower head, I think a typical bathroom. The jet could easily be directed at the switch if someone was daft enough.
Is this arrangement considered to be OK ?. Thanks.
