- Un-earthed garage light. Will I die?
Murf, that is what’s already there and it’s not bright enough for fettling, plus it’s low down and keeps getting battered.
How are you planning to turn the electricity off when you put a new light in?
Switch off, rubber gloves and wellies 😉 I was actually planning to find out from the maintenance guys where the breakers are, I just know they’re not in my stairwell.Posted 4 years ago
I’ve just bought a cheapy fluorescent batten for the garage but there’s no earth in the wiring. It’s a garage ‘en-bloc’ (as estate agents love to say) with a plastic conduit coming through the wall from the garage next door. There’s no earth wire in the switch either so would imagine there’s none in the whole block. A quick search suggests cheap, cheerful and double-insulated are not commonly found together, if at all, not to mention the £15 I’ve just spent. Any suggestions?Posted 4 years ago
