    Shower pump fed by a fused spur.

    Fused spur fed by 2.5mm load side of fused spur feeding shower pump with 1.5mm flex.

    pump is 2.5ka so roughly 10amps flowing.

    I would then think that 1.5mm flex can take up to 15amp free air so it would be ok to put a 13amp fuse in the spur

    Do you all agree that 13amp fuse is ok.

    Sounds good to me. Might be good if SFCU is an RCD type

    2.5kW pump?

    I have just installed one of those for a golf course irrigation system:D

    I am assuming you are in an airing cupboard and are spurring from the immersion circuit for the pump?
