hi there, can you help,can i run electric shower cable around the outside of the house,out of the loft and under the gutter.consumer unit at front of the house and bathroom at back .thank for any help.
You can run cable around the outside of the house, SWA(steel wired armoured) would be best suited for this application. With it being a shower 10mm2 is likely to be size needed.
As it is a shower installation and a new circuit and also runs outside house.
It must be done by a registered Domestic Installer as buiding controls need to be notified.
check these links out as it is a legal requiremnet;
