So what does he think it should be OS, IP66 in case the boiler leaks! They are a joke aren't they.

Might be better if your isolator was marked boiler isolator, rather than fan isolator!

They like to be able to take the fuse out of a SFCU and put it in their pocket, then tie a warning sign to the withdrawn fuse holder of the SFCU with a cable tie, or so I've been told.
