    Why is the electrical UNANSWERED THREADS link full of plumbing posts?

    If I click on the "Please help the forum out by replying to UNANSWERED THREADS by clicking here.", for the last couple of days it is infested with lots of plumbing and tiling posts, so much so that it's hard to spot unanswered electrical ones! The link used to be just electrical unanswered posts.

    Electrical... electronics... plumbing?

Now before you all start, I...

    Seems like a dumb question, but is a socket underneath plumbing allowed now?

    I just moved into rented accommodation and found this (see pic) under my sink. When I was last in the electrical business 30 or so years ago it would have been classed as a horror show waiting to happen, thoughts?

    Recently had an extension done. Noticed electrician had run mains electrical cables right on to the hot feed from the boiler which gets very hot. Is this a safety issue? Can the insulation stand the heat for hours on end?..
