I assume that you have to fit a double pole rcbo at the consumer unit to protect your sockets as they may be used outside in the garden , ie in the event of a fault both the live and neutral are isolated , would you be allowed to fit a single pole rcbo for sockets ??

concur,

I think most tutors etc just assume systems, spoke to one a while back and he admitted to never even having seen a TT system, :|

no probs there, but how can someone teach you about something they dont even understand themselves?

they are only reading text out, NOT teaching.! :eek:

IMHO you really only/ever should break the N on a TT system, never on a TNCS.
