is this the order you do it in, or is this what your brain thinks but not what you actually do?

Amazing how no one has mentioned continuity of CPC's INCLUDING main & supp bonding!

Mind you, if its an upgrade or the like, then i dont bother with main bonding. Pain in the ass most times to get out the wander lead:D

For a PIR i tend to do INS res tests first because this will (hopefully) confirm that everything is disconnected and there are no issues with circuits.

Then i move onto cpc continuity etc etc.

My bad.
