Refreshing Shower 3 8, 7:24pm

@Nisse_Hult @warpfactors I finally got around to making a SATW account because I really want to say thank you to you two for this really interesting engineering, safety, and economics lesson, with a bit of policy history thrown in. Here in the US all new homes have GFCI circuits (different name for what you call residual-current circuit breaker) in all bathroom and outdoor outlets, but older homes my husband and I have lived in don't always. My husband is an electrical engineer, so being concerned with safety, he bought a device that lets you test if a circuit is GFCI, and when the outlet in the bathroom doesn't have it, we use an external GFCI adapter. Whew I said more than I expected to haha.
