    With respect, trying to interpret your question.

    If you are asking "should the shower be earthed?" or "should the earth wire be connected in the switch?"
    then the answer is absolutely YES!!!

    The earth conductor must be connected to the earth in the switch box. To connect with the earth from the supply side.

    If it is a plastic back box then earths only need to go to front plate (switch). But get an electrician in because loss of earth or bad connections you could be looking at a shock or fire situation.

    Are you saying that you have connected the incoming and outgoing earths to the shower switch terminals but there is also an earth terminal in the back / mounting box and that is what you are asking about?
    Your profile shows you have a business name. If this is an electrical business I would refer this query to your cps provider.

    An earth must be provided at every accessory and point of utilisation, so if the earth runs from the supply direct to the shower, bypassing the switch, then you need to run a new earth either back from the shower to the switch or forward from the supply to the switch.

    It may be a bonding conductor, not a protective earth wire.

    Dear poster. evrybody would like to help you but your posts and responses do not provide any information.

    You say "from main" do you mean the MAIN EARTH TERMINAL, or do you mean something else?

    I am struggling to understand what you are asking here. Do you mean that you have a shower and you have decided to install an isolating switch, but that the switch and/or its mounting box does not have an earth terminal??

    Maybe words are not the way to success - photos please!!!

    I have massive experience of trying to make sense of some of the gobbledegook my Mrs can regularly spout.:)
    With that in mind,I have translated the question into a common language some may regard as English

    16th edition bonding requirements,4mm from Bathroom pipes to Shower pull cord
    Some bright spark has used a floating connector block to take the cpcs + 4mm,the terminal on the switch is not used
    Man is asking is it safe to reconnect the new switch he is fitting exactly the same as the old method

    Please remember to format your answers back into the initial language for easy digestion for the man,thats in order that confusion will not arise:)
