    been to a job looking at a replacement shower ,having looked at the shower .nice job ,but no shower RCD ,I have spoken to the customer and have told them should have been a shower RCD in play, now considering it the old wylex 3036 board and now needs a RCD putting in , the fuse is 3036
    30 amp ,now considering weather I put in a inline RCD or a new consumer unit ,your thought's chaps, and to top it off not much money .

    If at all possible and the customer can afford it I'd discuss a new board to include all circuits, makes more sense to do the lot at once ?

    If not at all affordable, an in-line to cover that circuit.

    IMO, new CU, at the very least inline RCD. If the price is tight for the minimum walk away.!!

    Are the circuits in the location supplementary bonded together connecting any class 1 and class 11 equipment to any extraneous conductive parts serving the location ?

    If it is a like for like replacement not technically required but I would be writing it on cert that recomendations to fit one had been made. I have just had one where I have explained that the cost of me fitting a 'shower' CU or RCD is a bit of a waste of money and that they should change the board, added problem was that the CU was in a very small cupboard where I couldn't fit it in, they have decided to go with a board change. Depends on the customers financial situation, the bottom line is if they cannot afford it they will get someone in to change the shower anyway.

    Manufacturers instructions will certainly specify an RCD though, so even if it's like for like you cant ignore it.

    You should take the manufacturers instructions into account, and could then choose to ignore them, following a risk assessment of course. Install the shower, as is.

    Go past go, collect your £200 and quietly disappear into the sunset, in the knowledge that no **** has happened in the last **years, so jobs a good 'en.

    Ones insured, and if said **** happens, you can rely on insurance company paying out, 'cos you done your risk assessment against manufacturers instructions etc etc.

    You've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do you, punk?

    Response Buzz style :D
