I am moving my Electric meter from its current position on the outside
gable end of my wall to the inside next to my Consumer Unit.
Currently the consumer unit is inside opposite where my electric meter
is (Fitted in Recessed box on wall).
I have the 32mm black conduit and hockey stick. Is it acceptable the
the Electric board for be to fit the Hockey stick on the outside of the
wall and then just above where it ends drill a hole through the wall.
(this will take me in just above my foundations about 12inches below
floorboards and from there it can go up to where my meter new location is.
I want to be able to put the electrical cable directly through the wall
with out it going in ducting whilst it is going through the wall.
I am building an extension on the side of the house so the hockey stick
won't be visible once completed.
Being a weekend, I can't contact the Electrical boards team leader in
Do you have enough of the original supply cable to take you through the wall
to the new position? If you don't, then you'll need proper jointing
material to extend the cables. You will also need to protect the cable as
it goes through the wall. I've seen many unprotected cables being attacked
by the salts and minerals in the stone and mortar, so the cable really needs
protected by a rigid external pipe of some kind.
Never leave any sharp edges that may cause damage to the cables outer
