Under ground wires to water feature


Postby Stephen Mills » Sun Aug 12, 2007 4:22 pm

I'm putting in a water feature in my garden. I need to run the wires under my lawn through a hole in the wall and then plug it into a normal socket.

Is there any advice/regulations that say how deep the wires should be? I'm burying them in a pipe for protection.

Thank
Stephen

HI,
don't even think about it......
Charlie Dimwit/Allen Tithead got hung out to dry doing this kind of c**p 'installation' & the BBC prevented from showing it.
you may not bury flex or tw/e cable in garden hose, it MUST be in armoured cable & any wiring out of doors comes under bldg regs,
It must have RCD protection and other considerations such as IP rated joint boxes etc, Please seek expert help before starting,regards SPARX
