replacing an existing 9Kw elec shower that is currently running on 6mm cable. Now, I realise under ideal conditions the cable is perfectly capable of taking the load, but I have no way of knowing any of the run, other than it starts off buried in the wall, so obviously it may be subject to de-rating. I am of the opinion an 8.5 might be a better bet, to be on the safe side. Anyone agree or am I being over cautious? There is no chance of examining the run without major upheaval and even less of running anything bigger.
