got a call earlier this week from someone asking me to look at there shower as they had had an electric shock from it. intially advised them to switch of at pull switch, (not able to do so in fuse box as it was ild wylex 4 way and not marked up, customer unsure how to pull fuses etc)

Ayway,told em if they hadnt sorted it I could get today. basically found 2.5mm cable in pull switch and in shower, checked rating, 9.5kw,,,,,that didnt add up...lol. unable to get any proper test results, readings all over the place, (tested to satisfy curiosity of termination in cu, wondered if it was say 10m in cu and choky block joint somewhere) told customer of cable faults etc, looked in loft and found a molten lump of cables and signs of heating on loft woodwork etc.

asked em who fitted shower, "it was the chap who tiled the bathroom about 3 years ago, he seemed to know what he was doing and it's
been ok for all this time"

Part P is a good idea but still wont stop these sort of peopl eh!!!!!!
