Recommended Posts

Fitting stand alone unit as requested. Find brand new CU had been fitted. Builder used his own sparks. No EIC, no test date. All factory neutrals finger tight. Plus no cpc in at least the down stairs lighting circuit. Plus a radial for a boiler fused spur in 2.5mm on a 40A breaker.

So the builder charges customer for the services of a spark but doesn't use one?

Well,if he did use a spark then he needs finding and dry reaming with every version of the regs since 1850, all amendments and guidance notes, then going for a swim with barrymore

OP - who asked you to fit the board you turned up with?

The house owner mate. Why?

 

The house owner had an extension built and the builder used his own sparks. He stated, at the time, that due to the extension a new CU was required. He then fitted the above leaving no spare ways. I was then asked to carry out works for them which required a two new circuits and hence another way which wasn't in the board. Due to the poor install I put both new circuits in my stand alone board rather than touch the existing board.
