The other question I have was on these weird big sealed relay type devices that feed the washing machine, dishwasher and sauna. They are switched by a sort of extra sealed meter without any counters. I suppose they are something to do with controlling times when the devices can be on. But they are always on and the house is a long way from any neighbours. They make quite a hum and canít be very efficient. Are they a legal requirement? And if so with what purpose since they are always on?
we had this kind of thing too, they would turn off the 3 phase during the day, of course no one told us until we got an electrician out because the washing machine and cooker wasn't working, apparently it was from years ago when heavy industry needed all the power during the day, a phone call was made and now its on all the time. (the heavy industry in out valley disappeared decades ago)
