Talk:Cable for domestic installation

There is a load of tosh in this article, along with some potentially useful stuff. Most of the tables of figures have errors in them (e.g. current carrying capacities are wrong, kW conversions don't seem to be based on 230 or 240V operation), the part p related section at the end is nonsense. The overall layout and tables need plenty of work.

I have a feeling that taking the useful stuff (a section on harmonised colours reworded a little) plus some of the ideas like table of typical applications for different cables etc and merging it into the other cables article might be the way to go, since that one has the framework but just lacks details on the specifics.

Any thoughts?

I dont know what to think personally. The subject areas of this article are covered elsewhere, so I'm not altogether clear what the writer had in mind. Perhaps it was a go at addressing all the useful things a begginer would need to know in one go.

Copying some of the good info from this into other articles sounds good to me. After that I dont know. NT 16:52, 22 May 2007 (BST)

Is there anything else here needs to be imported to anoter article? NT 04:45, 27 January 2008 (GMT)

Shall we delete this one?

It seems everything worth having is included elsewhere now, and somewhat better presented. --John Rumm 01:04, 17 January 2009 (GMT)

OK then... NT 11:24, 17 January 2009 (GMT)
