Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nifty product, very waterproof Great product for extending electrics outside. For a few days I fitted this product it has rained heavily and it seems very waterproof

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spot on Great little device and at a brilliant price. Such a neat idea for spurring outdoors. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value bit of kit Great addition, used on an older property where the board was still fuses but wanted additional Outside lights. Placed inline at the supply end. Loads of room for swa glands and terminals are generous and well laid out. Self reset feature is why I picked it for this application. Can’t comment on reliability but a much cheaper solution than ip rated db. Before any comments I did change the fuse to 6a.

Being single pole device will it isolate as safely as a double pole fcu

Want to install it before a double socket outside to add extra protection but am unsure how good it is as an isolator for maintainance
Asked by: Orchy
Hi Orchy, As with any Residual Current Device this spur breaks both poles when tripped out with the TEST button.

16A with 4mm armoured

I know the description says 13a. But I have a pool heater to power that can peak at 16a. If I upgrade the fuse would this be ok?
Asked by: Ovios73
No. You won't even find a fuse larger than 13A that will fit it. Consult an approved Professional Electrician.

Can i run a 2.5mm armoured cable from this to a shed to run light and small heater 2kw

Asked by: Lockwher
Hi Lockwher, The terminals in the FCU will certainly accept 2.5mm² cables so there shouldn't be any installation issues with your proposed setup.

Have just wired this in and it functions correctly BUT, I'm confused by the "warning light". When you press the Red button you get a flash of green if you look really carefully in the right light conditions. Dont see any Red colour at any time. ???

The wording on the face of the unit say Red On, Green off. What does this refer to?
Asked by: Anonymous
Hi Paul, The safety RCD circuit includes a red mechanical indicator `flag' which is moved into view of the window when the mechanism is reset (to allow power through) and away from it when tripped/tested (with power flow being cut off). Basically a visible red flag means the circuit is love and so should not be worked on due to shock danger, no red flag means that the circuit is isolated and thus safe to work on.

spur off

Looking to spur off a socket of the ring main inside the house for garden water feature and will be fixing to outside wall. Can this be done DIY?
Asked by: Johnseadog
Hi Johnseadog, Regulations allow for a DIYer to make like-for-like changes on existing wiring, but any installation of new permanent wiring would need to be signed off by a Part P registered electrician.
