Doing an EICR today and customer has a tumble dryer in the shower room.
Room is an L shape with shower directly in front of door and around corner under stairs is a tumble dryer.
it is fed from a socket in the lounge next door, cable has plug on it in socket that goes along skirting through wall to a junction box on wall where tumble dryer connects. its outside the zone as the wall is out of the zones and has a wall between the shower and junction box.
not sure of reg in 18th but it was 701.55 in the 17th regarding appliances in bathrooms/special locations.
would you C2 or C3 it? based on this description and picture below?
suitability of accessories/means of isolation are just some of the issues that come to mind.
I have for now coded it c3 as its not powered from the shower room but needs improving and there is no loose connections or thermal damage. the junction box is now rotated to be sealed better. In anycase customer is having me fit a switched fcu and run a proper feed to it.
