Hi all,

I have just got given a hot tub which i am installing. A friend of mine has put in all of the SWA to the area into a termination box and ran this all the way to a new 32 amp breaker within the CU. This all happened prior to the hot tub getting delivered and while i was sorting out the base for it. I am more than happy with terminating the swa from the hot tub and glanding etc but when i have stripped it all back the colour scheme is not what i was expecting. 3 Cables as follows:

Grey
Black
Brown

The question is: How do these relate to the standard line, neutral and CPC???

Really confused and any help would be appreciated. My sparks friend is on his hols hence i am not asking him.

Thanks

Carl

Use brown as live. Over sleeve black and grey as blue and green/yellow.

I know this is obvious , but i take it you are making the terminations back at the board as well and your not just assuming the sparks that is on holiday has made them off this way ?
I know this is a daft question but as they say , theres nowt so daft as folk sometimes !:goofy:

Any electrician should know B,B,G.

What colours was the O.P expecting; Red, Yellow, Blue, or Brown, Blue, Green/Yellow?

I do hope you are not relying on the MCB as the only device to isolate it, you should have an isolation switch accessible outside.
One other thing, if you are more than capable, you really should know what the harmonisation colours are!
