Am I right in thinking that if the bath has a side panel which requires a
tool to remove it,
the underside of the bath is outside the bathroom "zones"? In which case
does this mean
that I can legitimately route some wiring under the bath? I'm planning out
the route* for
a radial circuit for a cooker and the soil stack from the upstairs bathrooms
runs down the
(inside) kitchen wall and it is nicely boxed in. Therefore it presents the
perfect place to
drop the radial circuit back down the wall. However, to get to the top of
the soil stack
box I either have to run the cable under the bathroom floor, cutting through
x many joists
or I can simply run it under the bath.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated?
* Spend the entire day lifting floor boards, why oh why do people make
traps in floorboard then insist on nailing them shut again, have they never
heard of screws?
I lifted one trap and it was like the London Underground map, most of the
ring and lighting
circuits seem to pass through the same area along with the heating pipes.
Most of the pipe
work has been insulated however the wires are in close contact with it when
through the various notches and holes in the joists. I seem to remember
elsewhere in this group that this can leach the PVC out of the cable
sheathing, is this
