hi ericmark
this is my CU i have 2 blank slots available

old unit 1.jpg


I have a 32A MCB spare
I have 2.5mm SWA
i`m wanting to connect a 2.5mm SWA or bigger
from my main board and use the spare 32A mcb
to run power to this unit at rear of house !

this will eliminate need for a CU in garage
so one socket in garage the FSU for the light

i have looked at your suggestion and look's really good
just to power the outside lights and water feature
