My son has just moved into a new 3 story house. Each floor is on a different ring main.
Do home plugs have to be on the same ring main to work or would they still work if the master was on the ground floor and one was on the top floor.
Many thanks in advance

As long as they share the one consumer unit then they should work fine. Most houses have two ring mains, on for the ground and one for the upstairs, mine does and I dont have any problems.
I cannot see why he would either.

Lovely. Thanks very much.
The reason I asked is because I had read somewhere that they had to be on the same ring main. His is definitely one consumer unit.

They will be fine on that circuit - Quite unusual for a 3 storey to have 3 rings (if its new/newish) Ours was brand new 2 years agom, 3 storey, but all the 2nd floor is spurred of 1st floor for the sockets etc, although it has it's own lighting circuit.

My brother in law is a lecci, and he did our house.
Two floors are on different rings, I have home plugs, one up one down and they work great.
Cant fault them, buy from shop got mine in argos for 48.99 and they are belkin, if they dont work bring them back.
