One of the items on the Env. Agency information pack which arrived to
day was to raise the height of electrical power outley sockets to 1.5
A few things;
Is this ok to do under the electrical wiring regulations?
As the cables will certainly not reach to the new socket outlet, would
it be in order to join an additional length in the lower socket,
sealing the joint with some kind of waterproof - er seal? If so what
can do this job?
Also, is there (does such exist) some kind of kit for water-sealing
the entire distribution board switchgear - ie Consumer unit, mcb units
meteres etc? The work (and cost and finding a suitable high location)
of moving it would be a last resort solution.
Who sells sandbags? The Env Agency tell us to get some - but never
Ditto for airbrick waterproof covers
Fianlly they advise fitting non-return valves in the watre supply.
Reckon I can do that ok and B& Q probably have them. Where should they
be fitted through. Hot and cold supply?
Thanks for any pointers on any of the above.
