Switchboard Upgrade - Five Dock

Helen's old switchboard was well overdue an upgrade. The house is approximately 70 years old and the switchboard had all the signs of it.

Here's how we went about upgrading and relocating the new switchboard and meter box.

The old meter box was made of timber, right outside the front door, shonky additions as the years went on as seen by the links at the switchboard. Some cotton cabling some new - What a mess!

Not one safety switch to be seen!

Mains & Point of attachment cable upgrade

The old 16mm SDI cables actually had been heat shrinked at some stage as they were breaking down due to the UV rays from the sun. The new XLPE mains will cope with the UV rays.

Earth Electrode Upgrade

The Five dock home had no main earth visible, presumably it was a water pipe bond. We added a new earth electrode under the switchboard. This copper rod goes 1000mm into the ground!

Switchboard Complete

Helen now has the piece of mind her switchboard upgrade & relocation is up to date, every circuit is protected by an RCD and a surge protection device to protect her electronics from surges.
