Hi guys.
My mum wants an outside socket putting in for her Xmas light, well actually she wants 2!
I can get access under the floor near to a socket that I can spur off of. I know you are only allowed one socket on a spur but if I were to spur from the socket into a 13amp switched fuse could I then run 2 outside sockets from this fuse rather than just one?
Other than that to get the 2 sockets I'll have to see if I can extend the ring which will be harder to do as I can't actually fit under the floor.

Cheers

As its for Christmas lights, why not just plug in a 4 way block? You can get them as kits that have a weatherproof box, much easier.

As for your FCU idea, you can and you can have as many sockets as you can buy AFTER the fcu

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?

Do you mean two double sockets or two single sockets?

2 double sockets. So would be spur from indoor socket to switched fcu and them 2 double sockets after the fcu.
Cheers
