Diverting a Power Supply for Additional Water Heater

Postby jeffsmith » Wed Jan 15, 2020 8:59 pm

I have a dedicated 6mm2 cable supply to a water heater over a sink. It is protected by a 32A MCB. I want to be able to supply another 6kW heater (steam generator) in another bathroom, by using the same cable. Is there a suitable switch which could divert the supply from one branch to the other, i.e so that it is only possible to use one of the appliances at once?

You need ... ority.html

But you will need an electrician to install it
