    should you install a earth rod if running a feed to a shed which is built on timber frame and is all timber , no metal parts and will have no services ie gas or water in it so no need for bonding only a supply for a light and a couple of sockets or can you use a pme earth from fuseboard if the shed supply is run in 6mm armoured from the outside of the house ( inside house 6mm t+e to fuseboard ) protected by 32amp rcbo will be installing a 2 way board with rcd main switch in shed approx 25 meters away

    That helpline is technically only to help them obtain payment from a bank account!

    As Mudroch and Des mentioned don't install two30ma Rcds in line with each other and why use T&E how are you running it outside ?, I Would use Swa and so there will be no nead for a rcd at the supply end
