These devices are a common sight in homes and businesses around the US and around the world. But what are they for? Why do we need them? This video explores the life-saving potential of the GFCI (known alias: RCD) and explains how they work.

Do you like videos like this? Why not support the channel on Patreon! Funny, that last sentence was a question, but it’s said like an exclamatory statement. Odd, this English. Anyway, Patrons of the channel have enabled me to make this my job, and it’s really neat! I’d love to be able to make bigger and more elaborate videos, and with your help I can. If you’re interested in supporting the channel with a voluntary pledge, please check out my Patreon page. Thanks for your consideration!
