But if that box is getting wet then surely you need a plumber ?

Hi,

Thanks for the response, The bath has a normal plastic panel at the front which can be removed by hand, no screws or anything to take it off.

Is there a bath panel that can only be removed by the use of a tool?  If so, the area under the bath is outside of zones, and can have joints etc.

Incidentally, the regulations do allow for switches and sockets in bathrooms, taking into account zones and measurements.

Whirlpool bath wiring
Jul 3rd, 2017, 9:46pm
 
Hi, I moved into a new build house, where I got the builder to install a whirlpool bath. their is a junction box attached to the wall under the bath and pump with the wire from the pump going directly into this and then an electrical wire comes out of the box and into a switch outside the bathroom, in a cupboard, The switch is then connected to an RCD in the fuse box. Is this the correct wiring for this or should the wire from the pump have been wired directly into the switch in the cupboard? I would have thought that No junction boxes would have been allowed in a bathroom, especially directly below the bath where water can and has fallen onto it. This doesn't look like a correct rated box for any water.


I have attached a picture.
