    As i am not currently a practising sparks, But am qualified 236 parts 1 &2, NVQ level 3, 17th edition and i did my apprenticeship many moons ago all on commercial and industrial work, i am struggling to get my head around different supply types.
    Especially my own house, the supply comes in to the meter and there is just a thin wire that is taped up which come off this supply cable going the MET, which type of supply is this? Also is this something that need changing by the DNO?
