A picture would probably be worth a thousand words, but in the absence of that, I have the following:
1) The mains input to the controller. This is 1.5mm T+E, surface mounted ;-o 2) a mains input to the ('emergency') immersion heater. This is 2.5mm T+E, under the plaster and coming into a double back box 3) a proper immersion heater switch which allows the cable to come out from the surface corner 4) the flex to the immersion heater, which comes out from the switch 'properly' 5) the flex to the CH pump (I have a 'zone C') system ;-o. 6) The controller itself backplate, which is currently rawlplugged into the plaster surface
It is how to 'properly' manage (1), (5), and (6) which I am wondering about.
- how to get the surface-mounting (1) to neatly be wired into the backplate? I don't want to change things too much. I don't mind perhaps hiding the T&E in some plastic conduit, then sinking the last few inches into a backbox. But then: - how is one supposed to get the flex to the pump out neatly/correctly from behind the backplate? I know about blank plates with one cable outlet - but *two*?
I can't help thinking that I am missing a page in the catalogues with just the right wiring accessories for my needs. Any pointers, or links to photos to show how it might/should be done?
Thanks a lot J^n
