Sealed electrical unit inside shower area
On looking at some recent pics I notice that there is an old electrical sealed unit that feeds the light switch..inside the shower area..just above the water pipes..where the shower unit is to go! This has been plaster boarded, plastered and tiled recently with thick ceramics and water proof grout. What should I do?
I should say that I feel it may be an old electrical unit..not sure where it comes from or goes to. It doesn't operate a light switch, but I don't know if its part of any wiring that is connected up to the Greenwood fan or shaver unit. Certainly I had the entire house rewired..however thought that included the bathroom at the time..but did not[despite said Electrician stating to me at the time, some 15 months ago circa, that he had,as I recall]
Look forward to hearing from you.

Take tiles off and relocate box/connections to a more accessible place so that it complies with BS7671:2008.

Relocate the switch as its incorrectly located within a wet zone. relocate to a more suitable location so it complies with current BS7671 wiring regulations and issue a minor works certificate if the wiring has to be extended or replaced to the new location
