Home for the terminally bewildered, one step ahead
Each to their own but I have no idea why people want heaters outside.
We have one in our garden It's called the ☀️
Seems to,work fine. If it's cold then
A) put another layer on
B) see A)
C) Man up! Grow a pair
D) go indoors



And there's NO way I'm inviting friends around to have a bath with me in my garden

We do work for a brewery chain and like most they all they installed thousands of these post smoking ban but most are now disconnected, being an ex-smoker even if there is a hurricane outside you will go outside for a smoke heater or not.

You don’t want a fuse box in the garden and I doubt if you have one inside. Fuse boxes are so last century. Consumer units are used these days.

Just had a thought, 16mm cable from road? 16mm o.d. And is in fact a 35mm split conc or TNCS ( not putting PME coz @steptoe will kick off
Not sure why you query a 16mm² cable from the road when a lot of the local underground network around my location is 16 & 25mm² 4 core cable why would the DNO put a 35mm² split con cable into a property

So far as i know the standard size cable for a single phase service is 35mm split con. The mains cable in the street will be one hell of a lot bigger than 25mm..

I've been told by a few DNO guy's that most of St Helens has main cables are a mix of 16 & 25mm² 4 core and I have seen the plans to back it up

A rewire I did for my nephew a few years ago over in the Manchester area we had the DNO out to check the state of the feeder cable to the property that looked to be in poor condition and the DNO plans showed that the whole close of 36 properties only had a 16mm² 4 core PILC cable from the link box at the top of the close feeding them

Don't forget that a lot of the DNO underground cabling can be the best part of 100 years old and still in use until it goes bang
