I am in the process of adding an ensuite bathroom to my bedroom. I wanted to add a socket in the bathroom but seem to be getting conflicting information from people and documentation, unless I am interpreting the SANS documentation incorrectly.
From SANS 10142-1-2009 section 188.8.131.52.3 it seems one can install a socket in zone 3 provided it is on earth leakage. Table 7.1 seems to confirm this. However several electricians (not sure if they were qualified) seemed to say that only a shaver plug is permissible in a bathroom.
Can you guys shed some light?
Another question? What is done to ensure existing qualified electricians are kept upto date with newer SANS regulation? Or is it just up to the electrician to be familiar with it?
