InstallerUFB: The other thing to consider - Is that as you have altered the power wireing (by installing another cable (in the same set of holes) your house wireing is no longer code complient therefore voiding your house insurance should there be any issue caused by this wireing


No not true, the home owner is able to this, they may replace, and even move socket outlets ( and therefore fixed wiring) they may not extend a circuit ( add fixed wiring).

There are no legal problems running the cat 6 down an existing hole with 230v however you may not run the 230 at the same time or after the cat6

Yes I know this is stupid but that is the way the law is written.

As for the code of compliance, that has no effect except at the time the house is signed off. Anyway the extra low voltage wiring does not form part of the document. Any alterations to a house that do not require consent ( eg network cabling) do not require any sign off by anybody. Insurance is not an issue.

chevrolux: If something big enough to induct across from the TPS power cable to Cat6 has hit your wiring you have bigger problems than a bit of melted equipment to worry about.

Edit: I will add though, if it was me I would have looked at drilling down the wall or some discreet trunking. I just see no point in undoing something that is already done.

Honestly the biggest risk isn't inductive current, although that is a risk and it COULD happen. The biggest risk is noise induction - I've seen places where because a sparky wanted to save a few minutes and popped the internal wiring and power wiring through the same path in the wall cavities, ADSL just wouldn't stand past the ETP because of the induction.


Again, if noise from a 2.5mm TPS cable is stopine adsl syncing there are far bigger issues.

I've seen (and worked on) more network cabling than I care to think about. And I have seen some absolute shockers!! While I wouldn't have run it with the power myself, the fact is that it has now been done and the repercussions of doing this is being blown WAY out of proportion.
