    try put it where there's the least danger of a water leak. if you think about it, any socket in the house could get wet from a burst pipe above a ceiling.

    Agreed - I would not have any problem installing a socket under a sink (preferably wall mounted), after all we install outlets for waste disposal etc

    Just don't lay it flat to the bottom of the cupboard like I have seen, a couple of drops from a leak and it's game over!

    exactly. if wet-pants has done a half decent job of the water works, it should not leak ( we can all hope! ).

    Ip rated rcd socket? Maybe overkill but gives your peace of mind.

    and if the circuit already has RCD protection????? come on lads, it's only a socket, fitted where water might leak. so's all accessories in the house. shower leaks-- sockets in lounge get soaked. roof leaks--aerial amp gets wet. rising damp--rigsby gets wet.

    Why? His profile says NVQ 3 Electrical contractor, he is mainly asking for opinions on what others in the trade would do, as you have seen the opinions differ from one to another.

    The only thing in my house guaranteed not to get "wet" is the missus!
