Rated 4 out of 5 by from Weatherprood Switch Good product that delivers what it says in the description. Plastic feels a little cheap but it does the job and the price is fantastic. Strongly recommended.

Is the power indicator light always on so that you can find switch in the dark?

Asked by: Mishcum
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. All of the range of BG Weatherproof switches have 3 options for how to wire the indicator light, one of which is an Always On option (requiring a Neutral feed into the switch housing to achieve).

Can I use in place of wether proof sockets

Can I use these switches as opposed to a weather proof socket. I would like to connect 3 pumps in a pump chamber for a koi carp pond. These switches would make switching them on and off without having to open the socket covers
Asked by: Buppal
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. With any device which interacts with water it is advisable to use Double Pole switches rather than Single, as this will disconnect the Neutral feed as well as the Live feed as an extra precaution. Capacity wise, these switches are rated at 20A inductive (4,800W) each so should be easily able to cope with the load.

How do you take the front off to replace a wire? no visible screws.

Model 20AX narrow model
Asked by: DeBee
There are 4 small posi bolts holding the front to the back, these are covered with grey grommets which are almost invisible in the image on the Screwfix website. Fixes really securely into brass studs molded into the back box, not cheap self tapping screws like some makes.
