Some people think electricity can only travel through wires, but that's simply not true! Electricity travels easily through conductors, which include metal, concrete, water, and even people and animals. Insulators — like glass, plastic and rubber — don't carry current easily. That's why those materials are safer to use around electric outlets and wires. Anyway, the answer to this question is one of these two.
Best of luck!
I wanted to make some safety upgrades in the damp areas around the house, so we installed ground-fault circuit interrupter outlets in the kitchen, bathroom and on the back porch. They monitor the flow of electricity and can shut it off if the flow gets interrupted. Pretty cool, if you ask me. I can definitely narrow it down to these two answers, but you'll have to take it from here.
