I am a Plumber by trade and this is my first thread so i apologise if i am in the wrong place. Would like one question answering - as a plumber am i allowed to spur off an unspurred socket to install underfloor heating for example? I know it needs to be tested by a fully qualified electrician so the certificate can be issued but am i legally allowed to create the spur and does it need to be fused?
Hi David ,i take it that your socket is on the ring main you are going to spur from ? also assuming that the underfloor heating is not with a bathroom or in a kitchen or other high risk area ?
You would be able to create the spur if you could get an electrician to test it out and certify its integrity , a lot of electricians will not do this now as they don't like certifying other peoples work,this is certainly so if you are NIC EIC registered who actually prohibit you from certifying others works.
The arrival of part P of the building regulations has made a lot of grey areas David
