    Hi all

    I am changing a consumer unit and noticed that a FCU for the boiler and a double socket have been spurred from the same socket.

    As its was previously installed by someone else, do I record it as a recommendation?

    Not too keen on leaving it, although its been there years. Just more expense for customer.

    All I would do is note it on the EIC.

    While it obviously doesnt comply the boiler load is minimal and if it's unlikely that the socket is going to get two 13a loads at the same time there's not much chance of it being a major concern.

    Can't see a problem myself, just add a note saying it doesn't comply with the regulations today.

    Of course unless you think danger is imminent and have proof it has to be altered.

    Is the socket on the load side of the spur?
