    I have had an elderley customer asking about having a generator in case of power cuts after recent bad weather. He doesn't want an automatic changeover just a manual switched one and he isn't looking at trying to run 10.5 kw showers off it either. Just wondering if anybody has any tips and advice on equipment and the best way to go about it. Its the first time I've been asked to do anything like this and I have told the customer this but he is happy for me to look into it.

    Not enough information to give a safe answer. Generator type being the main one.

    DON'T EVEN THINK OF A SITE GEN SET!
