Hi guys, im having a hot tub delivered in the next few weeks. the hot tub is 32a and will need a 40a rcd from my consumer unit to an outdoor isolator then to my tub.
Ideally id like to install an outdoor socket aswell.my consumer unit is an old steepler one using series e and the largest breaker i can get is 40a.i was thinking of coming from main consumer unit to an outdoor unit which will contain a 40a for the tub and 16a for outdoor socket and ensure that i dont use socket whilst tub is being used??? up untill a time when i can get main consumer unit changed enabling a larger breaker to be fitted.
Would this be ok or would it be better to still install outdoor unit but forget the outdoor socket for now.
Any thoughts and advice would be appreciated.
cheers
