MOVING a CONSUMER UNIT


Postby daveh123 » Fri Sep 28, 2007 2:44 pm

I need my consumer unit resiting! a move of around 10 feet. There is not enough spare on exsisting cables. Therefore will all new tails require running in from the last fittings? or will the spark take them back to a convenient place and just use JBs or similar to extend the exsisting tails?

Thanks in advance

YOUR PART P SPARKIE HAVING ASCERTAINED THAT THESE
EXISTING CABLES R STILL FIT FOR BEING IN SERVICE, WOULD PROBALY
AS U SAY WIRE FROM THE LAST CIRCUIT OUTLET /FITTING BACK .
THE BOARD THEN WOULD BE LABELLED WITH A STICKER TO SHOW THAT
HARMONISED CABLES HAVE BEEN ADDED IF EXISTING RED AND BLACK.

Cheers Blakey

He has quoted £250 for the move so from that, he's either very cheap or not going to run cables from last fitting as some of these runs would be very time consuming, plus he made no mention of rerunning cables.

Time for another quote me thinks!!!!
