In some areas, it is required that outlets and lighting must be on GFCI protected circuits. I can see this being a great safety addition due to the fact that bathrooms are usually a wet environment and electricity and water do not mix!
Connected to the outlet circuit, you should install a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) to protect the user. A GFCI trips and disconnects the circuit power if it senses a difference in potential on the circuit, like a short circuit or a path to ground, which could be right through your body. This device is very important and can save your life!
A bathroom vent fan is an important part of every bathroom in the house. You may think that its only purpose is to exhaust smelly air from the room, but in fact, its more effect use is to remove warm, moist air from the interior of the bathroom to the outdoors.
The National Electrical Code has rules and safety information that targets all areas of both work and home settings. These include hydromassage bathtubs, spas, whirlpool tubs, and showers. As you should know by now, water and electricity do not mix, in fact, together, they can set up a highly dangerous and deadly combination, if they are not installed with safety in mind. By following the rules of the code, you can enjoy the refreshing and relaxing benefits of a hydromassage bathtub without the worry of electrical dangers.
