Therapy pool and electrics


Postby jardov » Mon Apr 21, 2008 8:40 am

We are hoping to set up a therapy pool in our garage which is below our living room and beside our basement. The incoming elecricity supply and consumer unit are in the basement (separated from the garage by a solid wall), within 2m of the pool - do they fall within zone B or C or does the wall effectively mean they are not within a zoned area?

Also, does a ceiling act as a limit to the zones or will zone B and C apply to our living room?

thanks

Walls ceiling and doors limit the extent of zones. I think your looking at an old book Zones are now 0, 1, and 2 plus no socket outlets within 3.5 meters but also for locations containing a bath or shower for medical treatment, special requirements may be necessary. (701.1) only sauna's have zone 3 and it all changed this year. Old regs go out on 1st July 2008
