    got an central heating system installation to tidy up and wire as an s plan. The new valves are further away from the wiring centre than the cables provided ...... so I was wondering how easy it would be to buy some multi core cable with the appropriate colours .....

    Found some but it’s 50 metres ..... on amazon and toolstation

    Anyone know where I can buy this by the meter


    And yes I know I could use standard 5 core flex, but I want to have the colours correct!

    If it's an S plan you'd only need 6 cores altogether to serve both valves as you have common permanent lives,switched lives to boiler, neutrals and earths so I'd use normal HR flex and a small enclosure with appropriate lever connectors to extend adjacent to the valves.

    I normally do as above but use a couple of surface boxes and flex outlets for the valves.

    You could even use one 'dual' box with that method Lee.

    if you want to have the colours correct at both ends, cut a good length off what you've got and put in 2 joints with normal flex inbetween

    Just use standard flex off the shelf from the wholesalers and label cores if its identification you are worried about.
