Sad I know, but I recently built a wiring test setup in my garage containing consumer unit, 2 x ring mains, 2 lighting circuits etc etc. I am wanting to purchase a second hand multifunction tester to play around with testing etc for when I finally qualify.

Can anyone tell me what tests are required for domestic installations?

And can anyone recomend a good tester which will allow me to practice these tests on my setup?

I have seen Megger 1502/2 for around the £200 mark or the 1552 for around £350 which is a little higher than I really wanted to pay.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Cool thanks for your help. I have decided to go for a 1552 and have consequently just put a load of stuff on evilbay to help fund my purchase.

Thanks again
