Am installing a hot tub and the electrics have already been installed. 32Amp, RCD protected, run in 6mm SWA. Problem is this terminates in an isolator with a BS 4343 blue socket right next to where the tub is located. Having read the regulations on special locations this is permittable as long as the socket is 1.5m away from Zone A (inside the hot tub/swimming pool). This socket isn't and could be easily reached while customer is sitting in spa. Customer is insisting that it is safe and wants me to go ahead but I need to know who will be liable if something were to happen. Electrician has done everything by the book as it has been terminated properly and obviouslly was not advised of spa location before he certified. I am unhappy about installing it so close as all my other installations have been done so the isolator is more than arms reach away from the water no matter what the IP rating is. Who would be liable in the event of something going wrong, I, the seller of the hot tub, the electrician, or the customer? Would a signed disclaimer by the customer cover my derriere !!!
