One of those air-cooled, soft top CU's with with cover thats gone missing years ago...

Recommended Posts

SPECIAL LOCATION

Found this one yesterday....

No point saying spot the fault.. you'd run out of time & ink writing em all down!

 

P.S. I have removed no covers or touched any part of the installation...

this is exactly how it was .   

domestic property...

 

 

That black cable disappearing off on the right hand side..

is the Rubber incoming supply feeding it all.

Nooooo...  the rodent mesh is on some of the final circuits going out....:D

The incomer bends off to the right hand side above the round JB...

 

The other end appears here..

BUT they do have a nice insulated switch to manually cut off the power if needed!  :pmsl1:

 

I am guessing the switch was added by whoever fitted the meter?

I am waiting to see if Deke owns up to it being one of his early jobs.....

 

Its a 'B64' postcode area....

Which by my calculations is within range for deke to reach and still have more than half a tank of fuel left?   :C

 

 

I was asked to go there as the customer wanted a quote for a new consumer unit!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

So I thought...  Well at least they got that bit right finally realising it was out of date!.   :(

 

SO....

do you reckon an RCD would stay on if added to any of those circuits?  :D

 

I did explain to them it would take a bit more than a typical single day CU swap-over..  :pmsl1:
