Straw poll and help - shaver socket


LastChip
Resolved

Likes # 0

Many of you were kind enough to offer advice on my central heating project and this is sort of an extension to that.

I've been looking at the regulations for fitting a shaver socket in the bathroom. It appears it can go in zone 2 or 3 provided it's unlikely to be sprayed with water (which is sort of vague IMHO). I guess it really means it mustn't be in a direct line where water has a high probability of reaching it.

Anyway, then someone said to me, people now use them as charging points for electric toothbrushes. So I began to wonder what the real purpose would likely be.

So my questions are, if you have a shaver socket, do you use it and what do you use it for?

And yes, I know it can only be installed by qualified persons.
