    Hello everyone

    I currently need to change a dual tariff (economy 7 & on peak) consumer unit situated inside a flat.
    One half of the existing split fuse board serves the storage heaters with the second separate half being the On peak supply.

    Am i correct in thinking a standard dual RCD board is effectively a dual tariff DB.
    Just making sure i am not being a numpty in my thoughts? which is quite often the case.,

    No it isn't, a dual tariff board should have two isolators one for each supply. A dual rcd board has one supply and one isolator with two rcds for the additional protection.

    Easiest solution if space allows is two separate boards and using rcbos will be more space effective.

    This is how we do it place the offpeak tail in the last rcd then link the main neutral

    This is how we do kind of implies you did it. The way that has been connected is nothing short of disgraceful.

    The yellow, black, red and blue look like they are swa cable which is floating behind the board. How long before the black lashed into the main switch starts giving smoke signals. If one of our lads did that we would sack them.

    Perhaps I'm mistaken, but the main isolator on the RH end no longer isolates the board? And I won't mention that G/Y has had a trim up ...
