A ground fault breaker measures the current leaving it and coming back.

If there is a difference in that current, it shuts off.

The theory is -  when someone gets shocked, the current goes from the outlet, through the person and to ground.

The ground fault outlet can detect this imbalance and save lives.

The TEST button basically introduces an electrically equivalent person to the outlet. (A simulated shock)

The RESET button restores power after a trip event.

Put them in the bathroom, kitchen, outdoors and definately on the dock.  You can get them in a circuit breaker.

One ground fault outlet can make all the rest of the daisy chained outlets safe I think.

 

If you are swimming and you feel a strange pins and needles (much like an asleep leg) feeling close to your body, swim away from it and get the kids out of the water.  Try to close your hands.

Electrocution occurs when a swimmer grabs electrically hot/charged metal.  The shock tightens your muscles.

You can't let go.
