I have a Steam Shower cubicle which is a free standing unit that basically replaces an existing shower. It is designed to sit flush up against the tiling. It has a 2.8kw steam unit attached and lighting etc....
The unit comes with a built in 30ma RCE at the end of the mains cable and then 6" further a 13a 3 pin plug. Surely it is not allowed to have a 13a socket in the bathroom even behind the unit it is or could this socket be connected to another RCE and a breaker switch? I dont want to terminate this in another room but would like to be able to hide everything, plumbing, wiring etc behind the unit
I presume I would need a part P qualified electirican to fit anything in the bathroom, even though I would be quite competent to fit it myself but it seems a lot of hastle getting the BC to certify it.
Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas how best to terminate this appliance so at least I can explain to an electician what I need to have done..
Has anyone had any experience with such a unit?
