I bought into a sunbed business last year, for my partner and the electrics are a shower of ****e....there isa problem with the ampageanddespite the fact the shop does need a larger supply, we can run approx 80% on what we have....which at the moment is a better option than paying e-on loads of cash to upgrade the supply.
Anyway, the shop below us (where the meter is - which we own) is not ours, and access is a nightmare. Can we request the meter to be relocated FOC into our premises?

Bear with me now, as i am being explained the following via phone....
There is a main isolator from the incoming mains. Then the meter. Then a 2nd isolator, contating three fuses (3 phase obv) all rated @ 30A :confused:. This has been bul****ted / bodged to 90A via 3 x 30A fusewires...nice! then off we go into our premises and a 3 phase board.

The 2nd isolator has rotted / burnt away over time (Obv the connections we're rating at less than the fuse wire!) so we now have a phase down. I am planning on replacing the isolator, then installing a 2nd in line in our shop so any future issues can be resolved inhouse. What i need to know asap is what cable will be feeding the burnt isolator if they were 30A fuses (16mm meter tails?)? Why is the board trip's not isolating firstly? I appreciate this is as difficult for you to answer as it is for you to understand!

The shop is 3 hrs from me so it's not a matter of poppingto see for myself!

Any help appreciated!
