Seen a number of past posts re power sockets in wetrooms, bathrooms etc.

Encountered this problem last week - disabled bath that is moveable limited by the length of hot and cold water supply pipes (has an electrical driven hydraulic pump that raises and tilts bath) delivered to client with a 1.5 metre lead with 13amp plug on the end!! (Bath previously used in a care home and I am reliably informed that it is the same length of cable that they used so must have been plugged into a wall socket in the area where the bath was previously being used). Currently being used by carers who trail an extension lead in to the wetroom!!!!

1.5 m lead gives no chance of complying any of the latest regs in the current location.

Can we open the debate again about power outlets in wetroom/bathrooms, is there a within regs fix for a power supply for this type of installation?

Safety further compounded by a moveable shower head within 3.0m to the right of the bath and a hand held sprayhead on a flexible hose(douche) for the toilet again within 3.0 M of the bath on the lefthand side.

With a longer flex a socket could be sited in a false compartment that is isolated from the wetroom.

Any thoughts?
