Rated 5 out of 5 by from Weatherproof switching unit Replacement unit for my fish pond equipment, certainly an improvement on the old one, easy to fit looks like it should be long lasting. good value. Have not had it long enough to judge performance or reliability but I am sure it will be good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Versatile Switch Unit I needed a power supply controller for the new pond I am building to isolate the water pump and UV filter lamp. This unit fits the bill perfectly and with four fused outlets I am able to incorporate the patio lights (retro style LEDs) and pond floodlight (20w LED). The highest power drawn is only 50w for the pump so this unit is ideal. I found it easy to wire and fit. I cannot comment on its durability yet but it is well made so I am confident that it will last.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fantastic muilty switch I have bought 3 of these controllers for my fish pond so I can turn the pumps and other things off and on easier. two of them performed fantastic but one of them filled with water and tripped my RCD, but screw fix replaced it no questions asked. Over all great value for money. Worth a go and I would recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult to wire , faulty swi The first unit was faulty, one switch would not latch, returned for replacement. Before wiring up suggest checking functionality. Because of restricted space inside difficult to insert wires into connectors. If possible suggest tip soldering stranded wires before trying to insert into connectors.. Price very competitive.

Remote WIFI Socket Compatible

Hi, I wanted to use this with a remote WIFI socket. I was going to connect pond pump, led lights etc to it. If these were all left in the 'on' position, could the complete unit be controlled by a wifi socket, by fitting a 13A plug on the supplying end?
Asked by: noballsyank
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The switches on this BG 4-Way Weatherproof Power Controller will stay latched in the ON position regardless of whether there is power being supplied to the unit or not.

would it be possible to use this in my shed to run my fridge and security light .

Asked by: willow57
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This BG 4-Way Weatherproof Power Controller is primarily intended as a lighting control box, and as such has fairly low switching capacities on each switch (1x 5A, 1x 3A & 2x 2.5A). Depending on which switch is used, and the consumption of your fridge, it may be possible to control it without causing an overload (the security light is not a concern). The 5A switch can cope with a maximum of 1,200W; the 3A switch 720W; and the two 2.5A switches 600W each.

What size cables can this unit accept?

I have 12mm armoured cable and would like to know this will accept this size.
Asked by: DIYerkiller
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This BG 4-Way Weatherproof Power Controller comes pre-fitted with 5x 20mm compression glands with an absolute maximum cable diameter through the rubber seal of 13mm (although you may need to lightly trim the outer nut to accept your 12mm armoured cable). Alternatively you could choose to replace any of these glands with a suitable SWA gland if you would prefer to.

Do you supply replacement fuses for this unit?

Asked by: gpsrock

Is this suitable for use with a low Voltage (12v) circuit?

I would like to run in a 12v input cable and have 4 12v output circuits controlled from the switches. Will this work with this please?
Asked by: Mike2345
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This switch is designed for 240V use primarily, but 12V will not present any problems to it. The switches are rated for loads of 1x 5A (1,200W), 1x 3A (720W) and 2x 2.5A (600W).
