I've tried three times to write an appropriate comment but words are letting me down. You'll have to invent some colourful new vocabulary for your report... I don't think standard English is up to the job.

E2A sorry I can't stand the suspense. You have to tell us what the polarity of the 'submain' is, what with the brown wires all being connected to the case and that. Pleeeease say it's the neutral or show us the other end.

In reality you can't stop stuff like this, Part P or no Part P. If someone is that clueless, exactly how the trade is regulated is neither here nor there. They will ignore any and all regulations and cheerfully carry on.

That is terrible …...


I mean who in their right mind would install BG
what's wrong with BG? never had any problems with loads of BG kit since the issue with tight screws being backed off and secured with loctite.

Nightmare.

Cannot find the other end (the supply) at all. Must be buried in a wall or a JB under a floor. Maybe I'll find it tomorrow. Floorboards up tomorrow.

Polarity?

The grey to the bottom of the MCB is permanent live. This then makes the neutral bar top right an....erm...ehhh...'live bar'?

Then you have the three circuits, grey live and brown neutral on each, all from 1.0mm three core with black snipped.

Oh - and one of those 3 cores feeds sockets, including a washer/drier (or at least it did).

Worse still, this 3 core supply seems to have been put 'in-line' with an older radial socket circuit on 15amp BS3036 which serves bedrooms upstairs. so when I disconnected at this new CU, the upstairs sockets went dead.

What a mess.
