Hi Guys wondering if you could give me a bit of advice here.

I had been asked by a friend of a friend to do a last minute job on a kitchen as he had been let down by his previous sparks ( now I know why:mad:)

Its an old wylex board which is full in fact client had brother in law come round and fit the shower, he did this by removing the cooker circuit and using that but cooker was gas and only being used for ignition.

Thing is when I went to split the kitchen ring found (bloody knew it) that they only had one power ring for whole house inc recent loft conversion:eek::eek::eek::eek: wtf. So JB ring back together and run new ring back to board. But now have nowhere to put cooker (changed to electric 4.9kw) and kitchen ring. Normally under 16th I would put in garage unit from separate tails , as I am still getting to grips with 17th is this still ok waddya think??

And also fiding hard to fing garage unit with big enough RCD 30mA as its two 32a circuits???

Actually let me revise above only ever used garage unit for loft conversions 1 x 6A and 1x20 or 32 depending on ring or radial etc. That was all ok as these rooms would not really have any large loads. But the kitchen in question is tiny only has one socket above counter and dishwasher thats it. wm in cupbard under stairs on house ring as is fridge.

So what do you recommend I did think about running away!

I did advise them to get new CU but they just don't have the money 3 kids blah blah lots of bills etc.


Can anyone advise please.
