Workshop Wiring - Prep work before Electrician



was running armoured for power,

: phone, data etc., so

cheaper in DIY quantities,

this circumstance.

Grateful for all the info guys. Mike, I did take your advice and went to get some coloured pipes to run the cable through, quite subconsciously I chose black!! - only to return to find a colour pipe frenzy in the thread ;-)
To be honest, now that I've read all the threads I'm glad I chose black as like Andy said, I intend moving house in about 5 years and wouldn't like to leave any nasty surprises for the new tenants!! - besides..... I'm trying to learn as much as possible as I go along and the whole 'this colour for this type' was new to me. My trench is now done (approx 400mm) and the warning tape etc is on order.
Thanks again to all who replied

Nonsense. It's not a safety issue, in this example. If you want to waste money/time/effort doing everything to comply with every concievable standard, that's up to you, the rest of us just get on with it.

It isn't a case of wasting money, time and effort. There is no difference in time and effort and very little in the materials It's a case of doing the job properly or bodging it. Therefore it is not reasonable to say that "the rest of us just get on with it", because doing so is to suggest that everybody is bodging jobs, which clearly is not the case.

Out of interest, what would a 4-inch red pipe be used for? Never seen that before AFAICR. One is being installed the length of my street at the moment.

Fire main? ie a separate water supply for sprinklers and hoses.
