    Hi can anyone advise please. I have bought a small pump/fountain to put into a belfast sink to make a small pond. Now what I was going to do is, the old Ariel cable came through the side of window. Can I put the pump cable through that hole and use the socket inside?. The pond is about a foot from window/wall? Thank you

    then yes just run it through the aerial hole as long as there is no chance of the cable fraying or getting cut into by any sharp edges from the plastic.

    yes its fine to plug in doors as long as its 240 volts with a three amp fuse depending on rating.
