Any property in South Africa built before 1980 may require electrical re-wiring. All pre-1980 electrical installations have metal conduits as earth continuity conductor and black outer rubber or fibre cables. These electrical installations are usually protected by fuses and do not have earth leakage protection. In summary these electrical installations are old and unsafe. They pose a great risk of electrical hazards to the users.
Some of the key indicators that your electrical installation requires re-wiring are:
- Metal conduits running to sockets and light fittings
- Lights dimming at night
- Fuse box
- Fibre coated cables
Any electrical installation without an Earth Leakage Relay need to be upgraded. ELCBs essentially protect the user from fatal electric shocks. It is an important requirement according to SANS 10142-1:2017 that all socket outlets and water heaters be protected by earth leakage relays with the exception of dedicated circuits.
