Having an updated consumer unit in an outdoor location is essential. Where water is present there is a greater risk of shock and corrosion of the metals on the connections etc. In this installation there was added risk had conductive pipes coming into the building, a garage. So an earth rod was required to satisfy regulations.
- a consumer unit with 30ma RCD protection
- Earth rod with a Ze value of 0.45 (well within safety limits)
- Certificate and building notification included in the price.
The result is a safe and reliable electrical installation outside for washing machine and other appliances.
