    Time limit on getting the 18th edition update

    Having just done the 17th edition in January I am in no hurry to sit through the torture all over again to do the 18th, a friend of mine has mentioned on his assessment he has told up to two years before he has to get the 18th as long as he works to the new regulations from January 2019 can any...

    Is there a time limit for upgrading to 18th edition

    I'm recently retired, but still qualified and pick up some of the smaller jobs others won't do. When the 18th edition is inflicted on us, how long before I need to pack in completely because I'm not doing any more f#*****ING exams....

    Limit to number of devices on BT Homehub 6 (infinity2)?

    After a lot of t-ing and fro-ing, I got a replacement HH6 from BT as the original was disconnecting devices at random. I was asked on the phone once about how many devices, and when I listed them, they said that was the problem. As my wife and I both work from home, with 3 kids, I probably have...

    Roller Shutter Limit Switches

    Hi, Does anyone have a wiring diagram of a typical roller shutter limit switch config. My shutter is working but I would like to see what the switches are actually telling the board. I could get a ladder out and measure the voltage on the screws but a nice diagram would be better ;-)

    How long does DNO approval last for?

    It looks like one of my customers may be having an electricity supply installed. If we ask now we can have single phase that will take 10kwp which seems sensible. The cost of getting the supply is expensive and so there's only enough to pay for 4kwp after installation at the minute. If we get...

    CRC energy efficiency scheme
