If you don't believe me, you will have a headache if you arrange the sockets like this

Water and electricity renovation is a very important part of home improvement. First of all, the layout of water and electricity will affect the “feeling of use” after living. Furthermore, it is the link that involves "personal and property safety". Another point is that if the hydropower transformation is not done well, it will be very troublesome to "re-modify" this hidden structure in the later stage, and it will cost another fee. Hydropower transformation is so important that every aspect of it cannot be ignored. As a small object in home life, "socket" is easy to ignore some details in the design: when I want to use the socket, I find that there are fewer sockets; when I use the socket, I find that it is blocked by furniture; Support... Then decorate more sockets! No, the more sockets the better, the unreasonable number of unreasonable circuit planning also has potential safety hazards. How can we reasonably plan sockets? How to make the socket not affect the appearance and neatness of the wall? 1. Classification of sockets First of all, it is necessary to understand what types of sockets there are. The switch sockets on the market are generally divided into two categories: 86 type and 118 type according to size specifications. The type 86 is commonly used at home, and we mainly introduce this type. The socket shape of the Model 86 is square. The size specification is 86x86mm. There can be one-unit, two-unit or three-unit features on it. 2. Specifications of sockets The commonly used sockets are single-phase sockets, and single-phase sockets include two specifications of "two holes" and "three holes". Two-hole socket The two-hole socket has a phase (L) hole and a neutral (N) hole. There is no protective ground hole. Mainly used in hair dryers, tower fans, desk lamps, kettles, meat grinders, juicers and other low-power appliances. Three-hole socket The three-hole socket has a phase wire (L) hole, a neutral wire (N) hole and a ground wire (PE) hole. The three holes are divided into 10A, 16A and 25A. Mainly used for high-power home appliances. For example, refrigerators, washing machines, range hoods, etc. mainly use 10A three-hole sockets. Like water heaters, 16A three-hole sockets are generally required. Vertical 3P air conditioners use a three-hole socket of more than 20A. Four-hole socket and five-hole socket A four-hole socket has two two-hole sockets. The five-hole socket has one two-hole and one three-hole. The five-hole socket is divided into "normal five-hole" and "oblique five-hole". 3. Sockets with more detailed requirements As users' needs for sockets become more and more detailed, the current sockets will also have the functions of switches and USB. In addition, there are "multifunctional sockets", "multifunctional sockets" waterproof sockets and "safety sockets". The multi-function socket is a product that can be compatible with foreign plugs of different specifications. Waterproof sockets are suitable for places with a lot of water vapor such as bathrooms. There are safety protection shrapnel inside the safety socket, which can more effectively prevent the occurrence of accidents. There is also a socket commonly used in the office area - the ground plug. But it can also be seen in home decoration. The ground plug is generally 2-3mm higher than the ground.
