    Hot water pipe above fuse box 7th Aug 18 at 9:33 PM
    My landlord has had a plumber out due to a leak and he has had to put in some new hot water pipes to the downstairs bathroom he has put the new pipe directly with no gap above the electric fuse box. Does anyone know if this is safe?

    NO gap? I.e. it's actually touching?

    Guess could be worse, could be the cold water and condensation dripping off onto the fuse box
