  1. Just to preempt any concerns, all the works below will be carried out by a qualified electrician. In the process of buying a house and just trying to get a head start on planning electrics. As I am trying to eliminate untidy mess is putting a Henly block inside a consumer unit allowed? I only need a 3 way (1 in and 2 out) for 25mm 100A and seems a waste to have yet another thing on the fire resistant board when there is a load of space inside the consumer unit. If not allowed does such a thing as a 3 way din rail connector of this size exist and would this be allowed? Thinking of something like this with 1 x in and 2 x out Or this but for 25mm cables
  2. Just to preempt any concerns, all the works below will be carried out by a qualified electrician. In the process of buying a house with an outdated meter, mains fuse etc which I intend to get UK Power Networks and the electricity supplier to replace with 100A Smart meter etc. I will be running power to the detached garage at some point and may as well add enough umpf for an EV charger. Currently there is no Isolator switch and my question is considering an already crowded electricity cupboard, does such a thing as a combined Henly Block and Isolator exist? I've seen these 4 pole 100 amp isolators so in my unqualified mind joining the two left lower poles and the two right lower poles with a chunky busbar would do the same thing as a Henley Block. The outputs would then feed two respective consumer units, one in the house, one in the garage. Am I thinking crazyness or would this make sense/be signed off?
  3. up at horses yesterday morning helping daughter, wife decided to stay and do the ironing. daughters phone rings, mine flat battery, 'come home, there's a smell of burning'. got home and 'oh yes and it smells electrical' wife already pulled some of the 'stuff' from under stairs, i pulled a lot more, felt a cushion which was warm. it was the big black fuse before the meter and it was HOT, live wire going black and popping ocasionally. emergency sparky called 'you need scottishpower as it's the power going to next door' (we're a semi). he pulled the fuse as he said it would go on fire. so 3hrs later we now have two nice new henleys, i was reading about them in another post and was wondering what they were, now i know! so glad it was during the day and someone was in, we would have had a fire otherwise, seriously scary thought, house still smells of burnt wiring.
