I live in the UK - my downstairs toilet consists of just a small sink and a toilet.
Next to the sink is a heated towel rail which is wired straight into the socket, and is controlled by a switch.
I would like to add a timer to control when it comes on and off as it is not connected to the central heating.
I have seen socket adaptors with timers on them (see picture), but this would mean installing a standard plug socket and rewiring the towel rail to have a plug.
As far as I can tell this is allowed under UK building regs as it is not within 3 metres of a shower or bath, but I am still worried about the proximity to the sink.
Would this be a viable solution or are my concerns founded?
Any advice would be much appreciated!
