Evening
I have to extend some 6mm 4 core swa's currently used for commercial washing machines.
In order to save time and money I wondered if it would be acceptable to extend them using YY 5 core cable.
Any thoughts welcome

Regards
Ady

How do you intend to join the cables? Im thinking It could be more time consuming trying to create a suitable joint.

Probably could do it with a decent IP rated with M20 knockouts. Metal sheath and any internal CPCs will need interlinking (off earth-tag/banjo or earthed-lockring.)

Obvious question:
-Compatibility of current-capacities.
-Accessibility to joints (may need to through-crimp.)
-Suitability of JB and YY for environ.
-Provisions for mechanical protection.
Etc. Etc.

hi jsa
In the existing consumer unit, there's plenty of room.
