Discuss EICR and RCD's. Is it a C2 or C3? in the Looking for Domestic Electricians? area at ElectriciansForums.net
No you're right but we all know a lot of sparks who go in an start sucking their teeth whilst rubbing their hands telling the client something is unsafe whilst already counting the pound signs.Not strictly true. Whether it was permissible when installed or not is completely immaterial to how safe or unsafe it is now.
A single RCD for the installation would not be a compliant solution.No you're right but we all know a lot of sparks who go in an start sucking their teeth whilst rubbing their hands telling the client something is unsafe whilst already counting the pound signs.
Ive come across a few who tell people they need to splash out on a new cu simply because its not metal.
If nothing else was wrong and it was simply a lack of rcd the electrician could have also suggested putting an rcd before the board.
Nobody here knows as we have not done the inspection nor know what the issue regarding lack of RCDs actually is. There is no regulation that says "a consumer unit must incorporate RCDs", but rather a number of specific regulations that require RCDs for different applications.I am confused sorry. To be compliant for the EICR to be satisfactory I need RCD's?
