afternoon O wise ones, I will be doing a rewire and Elecsa will be attending to assess, the problem I have is that the tails that come out of the meter ( rented prop ) are only 16mm and Npower are not going to change them, just wondering what the out come will be from Elecsa and what is the best way to approach it.

Regards Iain

More info required...

Earthing arrangement?

Cutout fuse rating ?

16mm tails are acceptable under certain circumstances.

earthing is TNS, I cannt get to the fuses yet but seem to remember that both the line & neutral have seals on them, I will check the fuse rating in the morning.

Thanks Iain

When doing rewires or even board change, I always put new 25's in. As previously mentioned they are not always required but I think shiney new tails finish off a tidy new board.
I would agree with this also if main fuse needs upgrading to 100 amps consumers side of meter is ready for it.
