after my rather vague thread Friday about finding the 30 mtrs of 10mm 2 core swa In the back of me van.....after some views on earthing to the shed, 3 options as far as I’m aware are
1. Run a single 10mm from main met upto the shed and use that
2. Use the armour of the swa, adiabatic permitting..
3. Connect the swa to the main met at source end and TT the shed
Each option is appruthe same cost wise and it’s my own house so Labour is not a big issue, as per title just after others views and preferences....
