I've been continuously been installing Warmup's UFH cable kits for the last 2 years. Next week I have a job that requires me to lay the Warmup UFH mat kit(s).
Anything I should know or are they easy enough? Some tell me they are easier than the cable kits. Any help and advice would...
Just wondering if anyone has one? I'm considering a double cab van LWB so if I ever have to pick/drop the kids off on my way to or from work I have the room. The missus is a nurse so sometimes is working unsociable hours and would make life easier if I could do this. I was speaking to someone in...
I'm looking at going on the 2394/2395 course which was previously the 2391.
Apparently the 2391 was difficult to pass and had a high fail rate.
Is the new one easier?
Does anyone have any info or a guide?
Need some help if anyone can, i have been trawling the internet and forums to find a basic wiring diagram of a non maintained emergency lighting circuit with a key switch incorporated. so far i have found nothing.
I DO NOT NEED IT EXPLAINING THATS NOT THE ISSUE.

Can we carry out the continuity test for the ring final by connecting the line, neutral, and cpc end to end at any socket or do we have to identify and disconnect the conductors at the C/U? I am aksing as i think it is much easier to link the line, neutral, and cpc end to end at any socket...
Fellas is it permissible to run a single 2.5mm in a loft or do really need double insulated?, there has been an attempt to add an earth to the circuit before but they missed the switches out and some fittings are 32Ohm R1+R2, it's in a bungalow so should be easy
Hello, as an electrician who frequently works in the United States as well as the UK, I was wondering why UK electricians don't adopt the US style conduit bender as shown below -
This style of bender comes in 3 sizes - 1/2 inch, 3/4...
When doing the rcd test on sockets. Do you repeat the test at every socket in the ring or just at the middle of the ring, and within what time does the rcd have to trip at x1 its tripping current 200ms or 300ms? Thanks
Is it acceptable to do a normal lighting circuit but have 2 x 1.5mm twin and earths coming out of 1 6a MCB for a full rewire?
Reason being is that the house has an awkward step upstairs which makes it difficult to get cables to the other two rooms.
Can anybody tell me if I need another RCD to protect a single outdoor socket in my garden?
I already have a 30mA RCD main switch at the C.U so would this be sufficient?
Also, would it be ok to spur straight from a socket on the ring circuit-using 2.5mm SWA to the socket, about...
I need to chase 4 walls for light switches shortly. Its in my own home. Had it re-wired few months back but due to time restrictions had to have wall mounted switches and trunking fitted.
Was planning on using my sds drill then 25mm chisel, covering cable with pvc channeling.
