Sur la continent, I often see washing machines plumbed-in in bathrooms.
Here I sometimes see standard 3-pin sockets mounted at ceiling height
for a bathroom heater (with a cord-switch, natch). Does anyrat know if
it would be legal in the UK to plumb- and wire-in a washer-drier in a
bathroom by either (1) having the socket at ceiling height or (2) wiring
it in permanently with a pull-cord isolator?
The UK rules changed a few years ago, dividing bathrooms into "zones"
that say what sort of equipment can be installed where. This gives an
I think a normal socket is still verboten as someone could plug in any
appliance and use it too closer to the bath / shower. A permanently wired
in washing machine might be OK.
