    Double socket spurred off of Ring.

    Ok so I'd like your opinions on this as I seem to be the minority on this. I'm fairly newly qualified and obviously still learning everyday. Electricians I work with and everywhere on the web says that spurring a double socket from another that is on a ring final circuit is fine, as long as...

    Ring final fault - please help !

    I'm doing a PIR on my flat and I've come across a fault I can't work out. I'm getting a very low (about 0.1Meg Ohm) insulation resistance between Neutral and Line conductors on one of the ring circuits. However I'm not getting continuity between Line and Neutral and the MCB isn't tripping...

    Domestic Cables burnt behind fused spur supplying immersion heater

    I went to a house last week where the live cable on the supply side of a spur (old colours, red) was coloured black as it had been burnt by what looked to be arcing due to loose connection. So i changed the old spur for a new one, as the old spur was all burnt and discoloured. Now the customer...
