I’m only an apprentice and of course, I’ve curios about a lot of things. I was in my friends house recently, who is getting an electrician to upgrade there, rather old, consumer unit up to 18th edition standards.

I had a look, out of curiosity and seen this (uploaded a photo) and I was curious on how to make the board fully dead as there isn’t an isolation switch for what I can see as the meter tails go to the bullet? And obviously I won’t be pulling that out.
My main question is, how would I fully isolate this board?
Thanks for your help

Us us down south have yours them up north as the same DNO, I believes with slight tweaks.

Down here, down south, SSE allows Scheme members to pull main fuses with abandon, following certain criteria. Dunno how that pans out in bonnie Scotland, but you could enquire with your DNO.

Pull the fuse. It doesn't even have a seal on it.
No... I don't see a seal... never had a seal as long as I remember.....

Just phone the supplier, ask them to fit an isolator. Might cost a little bit, but makes life easy for the sparks.

Is that the going rate for an apprentice these days? A tenner?
and what did you buy with that? A big box of Jaffa cakes? Good man.

Ps... who took the front off the board? naughty naughty.

£160 in Bristol for DNO to fit an isolator. If you buy wylex isolator and put it up ready with your tails in they will happily connect to that. The isolator cost £23 bit of a saving eh?
