Customer has asked if it can be done, he wants washing machine and dryer to go in old airing cupboard in his bathroom as kitchen is tiny.
it has slpit load box and as he wants spotlights as well, so they will be going on rcbo so all circuits will be rcd protected.

Is this possible ?

Bathroom isn't big enough for the 3m rule but they will be in airing cupboard, where insidently the controlls boost etc for the old immersion are.

No problem, if a door...assuming away from bath / basin taps etc. Just do it, use rcbo/rcd no problem................expect if council inspected, tell them to prove it is not within regs, they will always argue. If they don't agree take them to court. Simple. Some councils are ok some are crazy, most council sparks are complete idiots, I am mighty than you attitude...call their bluff
