I recently had a new consumer unit installed (6mo back). The shower is on a Hager ADA140G breaker, 40A rated.
However,when replacing the pull cord switch for our shower and doing my research, I discovered it was a 10.8kW shower that recommends 45A switches.
Is this a serious issue that needs to be rectified or is it within safe tolerances, given that showers are not left on for hours on end.
p.s. this is the reason for replacing the switch. I'm glad I found the source of the fishy smell.
