    waterproof switch replacement for standard 2way

    Any one come across a waterproof IP65 or similar replacement for a standard 2way switch in a 35mm recessed back box? Ive been looking around but have come up blank. Its a finished and tiled internal wall, and furniture makes its unacceotable to have the added depth of a surface IP switch.

    Why is Solar so Great?

    I'm poised to spend £11,500 on a 4kW installation. Here in NI, we still have top-end ROCs and the installer ran some figures for us. He projects an annual return from the installation of around £2,000. We even have a loan option which means we'd only earn around £1,000 for the first 5 years...

    Pulling the fuse on top-up meters?????

    For my billionth question today, does anyone know what happens if you pull the fuse on a top-up style electricity meter (you know, the one with the card or fob and you buy credits from paypoint or whatever), would the customer lose all their credits?

    The Green Book

    Hi all, I read in this forum some days ago about the amended 17th and a new book. So, we have to buy a new 7671 book, a new on site guide and of course the guidance notes as well? :eek: I think they should go for an electronic version which then can be updated easily and cheap and it won't...
