Rated 3 out of 5 by It's good but! The red indicator light is very poor, just installed in garage and with the lights out there is only a faint glimmer. 4 Jul 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy fix for existing system I have used this to protect an outside cable run which had no protection and was run on the surface in a hedge with ordinary cable (installed by a previous owner) and is now underground and armoured. Two issues (both minor). The cut outs are not that well defined, I finished up drilling them out as I was not confident of breaking them out (20mm cutter). The waterproof seal is fiddly, it keeps falling out of position and combined with a plastic case which can pull out of shape under the stress of an armoured cable it can be a nuisance. Make sure the armoured cable is well aligned and secure It seems to work well when installed. 31 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just the Job My garden has an Irrigation system protected by an RCD. Went on Holiday came back to a desert. There had been a power cut and the old RDC is not "latching". Bought this one and fitted it without any problems. Can't say about reliability yet but so far so good 25 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Switch I bought the switch in store - as usual good service. The instructions with the switch and in fact on it were very clear. It was easy to fit and worked first time as you would expect. Too early to know about the reliability hence the neutral rating. 11 Dec 2015

Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
Yes, using a fuse with a rating below 13A is perfectly acceptable as it has no bearing on the operation of the Safety RCD circuitry.

This unit has a 13amp fuse, housed under a std looking cover/holder on the face plate of the ceramics.
Is this changeable by 'lifting' the cover as you would a house type unit (after removing it from the weatherproofing face place casing)?

Answer: 
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
Yes, as you have correctly identified the RCD protected FCU is indeed a standard internal faceplate fitting just enclosed within a weatherproof housing, so the fuse is replaceable as with any normal FCU once you have freed the plate from the enclosure.
