sorry - another question - new house and a week off
I've seen triple sockets down the local DIY place and was contemplating
swapping out some the the older single and double sockets with them.
Unfortunately a most of the old wallpoints in the house are run as spurs
from the existing ring main upstairs. Assuming I don't do silly stuff like
connect up two fanheaters ande a microwave to one, are they a: okay / safe,
and b: following whatever current electrical safety regs that exist?
Even if you all diss them on spurs, I'm assuming that if I use them as the
standard on the new ringmain I'm putting in (one set of 3 in each of 4
rooms - shourt run of 8 m) the nthat at least is okay.
They are safer to install than twin sockets, because of the internal fuse
limits current to 13A. A twin socket is fuse limited to 26A, although I
believe you are allowed to apply diversity to bring it down to 20A.
