Water and electric don’t mix

Tip of the Day: Silicone sealing around the gaskets of outdoor boxes will keep water and rust out of the device and connections. This simple effort increases safety and reliability. Also anything outdoors must be GFCI protected by a GFCI breaker or by a GFCI receptacle device itself. Also please note, if the device is not under a porch or protected from direct rain it must have a rain tight bubble cover.
