    Looking for advice to join 3 x 2.5 cables. Iv two 2.5 cables coming for my jacuzzi and 1 cable thats on a fused switch that I plan on joining. my electrican can't get back to us for a couple of weeks, was planning on connecting the cables up myself, would I be best to use 3-way wago connectors and put them in an Ip65 adaptable box? Or could I just use connector strips in the same box?

    Why have you got two 2.5 mm cables coming from your jacuzzi?

    Is this a bath indoors or a hot tub in the garden?

    Not sure why, its a whirlpool bathtub in a bathroom.

    Neither do I, so I cannot tell you what to do with them.

    I would expect something a 1.0 mm or 0.75 mm flex for the pump and possibly another if there’s lights, but generally I only expect there to be one cable going into a control box that supplies both the pump and lights.
