Thanks in advance

Should be about 1 weeks from you sending the letter off to getting an appointment from them. The appointment will probably be about 2 weeks after that date - unless you have specified dates that you are not available.

Big Thank You

by adz8192 • Mon 13 Apr 2015 16:31

Today I had my CONSUEL visit and am pleased (relieved!) to say that my installation passed first time.
I am not an electrician and would not have achieved this pass without the assistance from this forumand especially the knowledge and postings of Robert Arthur.
So, thank you very much.

Thanks for the wealth of information.
I (think) I am now fine with the earthing principles.
One further question though.....
I have installed a shower and it is fully tiled and finished.
How do I now go about earth bonding to it and make it aesthetically pleasing?

ok, went shopping and opted for the Cantal Entre Deux...... Our French friends from Normandy are in the village at their holiday home. They came today and we gave them the last of our real Cheddar which they begged for. So I have just had a supper of Crackers with the Cantal. Yeah, just not Cheddar ...
