I want to add about 4 extra sockets in a daisy chain from a 13A FCU in a bedroom. There are no sinks or showers etc. in the bedroom. Is there any point in putting in a 13A RCD FCU and then running the additional sockets from this, or would this be considered unnecessary and a bodged job? One of the sockets might be used to light a fish tank. Ta.
If the socket you are taking the feed from is not already a spur, you can indeed install a 13amp FCU and extend a circuit to protect any number of plugs there after, be carefull not to overload the extened circuit remember you only have 13amps.
Myself I would consider extending the whole circuit, so if it was a ring final circuit I would extend the ring, very little extra work involved.
As for RCD protection, if the circuit is already RCD protected at the CU there is no need, if not, it is now a requirement to do so.
So any new work carried out will more than likely need a RCD protection.
