jacuzzi bath supply


mikel

Question

Tomorrows job is to provide a power supply for a jacuzzi bath that a plumber has already fitted. He has removed an electric shower to do so but the circuit for the shower is still there, terminated at a 45a a switch on the outside of the bathroom. The plumbers suggested I can use this to feed the bath as its redundant for the shower. He wants the connections to be under the bath which will have a panel on the side which can only be removed by the use of a tool so under the bath will be out of the 'zones'. My question is do I make the connections with a fused connection unit or a plug and socket connection. The bath only needs a 5a supply.

If you put a plug down there there's nothing to stop a future numpty plugging in a portable TV. The bath isn't portable so I vote FCU 100%

:D

I agree totally with Apache on this one.

I have fitted a few of these and all instructions I have read have required a fused spur outlet (outside) the zones.

The connections under the bath I do with an adaptable box, it gives better IP ratings than a JB and can not be mistaken for anything else, especially with a warning label stuck to it, for isolation and testing.
