Consumer Units

Consumer Unit Replacement

The consumer unit in an annexe needed to be replaced.

It lacked RCD protection  and the SWA connection to a garden room had failed after 30 years.

After testing the circuits to confirm that the circuits were still OK to continue to be used the old board was removed and replaced with a small split RCD protected board. One side for the garden room feeding a swimming pool filter and air source pump, the other for lighting and socket circuits.
