hi, have to wire up one of those whirlpool baths for a client. It comes with a 13amp plug and with reading the new rags I am taking it as that i can put an outlet or fcu under the bath, since its only accessible with a tool. Is this correct???

The whole board will be RCD protected btw. Or shall I run a radial up the other side of the wall to the bathroom, and connect the bath through the wall to an FCu. Help appreciated as always.

Thats regs! sorry!

Yep, that's fine. As long as all equipotential bonding is in place and the circuit is RCD protected then that is fine.

Thanks cirrus, so a fcu under the bath is fine.

I have only main protective equipotential bonding in place. Are you lot still supplementary bonding?? The motor to the whirlpool does however have a fly earth, i would imagine that that should be supplementary bonded?

Under the bath is zone zero if a tool is required to access it. If RCD protected supplementary bonding is not required

erm.....no it isnt

if a tool is required to access then its OUTSIDE the zones, regardless of 16th or 17th

Zone zero is IN the bath!!!;)
