    If we deleted the 'B' surely that would be more appropriate.

    Yes, but he would report me again and get me banned again.

    He can post inaccurate dangerous info, but I get banned for name calling.

    I have pointed the issues out to you, bit as ever you are in denial.

    You still have answered the question and I gave you a clue.

    I did report one of BAS’s post for being dangerous advice quite recently.
    Can’t remember which, I think it was the one where he said an FCU wasn’t required to spur off a RFC to feed a boiler.

    just a thought, do you have a shower ring circuit in the loft? maybe use that? When in the shower just turn the cctv off and shower on, vice/versa? unbelievably when we brought this house i went in the loft for whatever reason and happened to notice that the shower circuit went to the shower, bathroom lights, heater fan and extractor! apparently the t**t was an electrician!

    Electric showers are generally on a circuit of their own. CCTV is usually meant to be on 24/7 and with the low current draw, it could be left on all the time on a shower circuit.

    If the circuit for your shower etc. is appropriately rated, there is nothing wrong with running the other items you mentioned. Not conventionally done that way as you'd normally have the lighting and extractor on the lighting radial.

    A FCU is obviously not required if is is feeding a socket as the plug has a fuse.

    It is required when it’s feeding a socket and a boiler.

    I wonder if @Seelda decided it wasn't worth all the hassle to install the CCTV/NVR and lights! :rolleyes:

    Not if the boiler is plugged into the socket.
