Hi,
I have just joined as I have a non urgent but nagging question...hope you guys can give me peace of mind!
Thank in advance.
I have just checked the amperage coming in on the meter tails prior to the meter (Between the main fuse and the old style dial meter) this is 0.85 amps. However the measured amperage in the tails between the meter and the consumer unit (actually between the meter and an old 50mA RCD that then goes onto the consumer unit) this is 0.97 amps. Why the discrepancy?
Any thoughts/revelation or 'that should be bleeding obvious mate' answers?
