Thank you Mr Electrolux. I was just about to install my new electric stove
when I was strangely drawn to look at a few you tube movies. And there you
were! Thanx again for reminding me to turn the power OFF when doing
You are most welcome sir!
Mr Electrolux would you ever consider making another electrical safety
movie this time addressing the installation of breaker boxes while standing
in a pool of water?
Interesting! Should I deem the practice as unsafe I would indeed make such
a movie. Let me do some research first.
Hey Electrolux! I don’t know who you think you are and quite frankly I
don’t care, but I’ll handle electricity any dam way I feel like and not you
or any one else is going to tell me how I should or should not do my home
repairs! That my friend is how I rule!
Of course Mr. Johns. I’m a firm believer in freedom of choice. My intention
in posting this video was in the interest of public safety and nothing
more. Electricity at times can be dangerous so it is best to handle it with
respect. I’ve absorbed more Volts than I care to admit and if I can save
someone else the pain so much the better.
Up yours Electrolux!
Mr Electrolux, recently I was changing some wires attached to my hot water
tank. Now, the wires were live but I WAS standing in a pool of water. I was
under the impression that water could insulate the human body from the
effects of electrical power. I’m ok now, and finally home too, but it was
touch and go there for a while. I think next time I’ll check for more
electrical safety movies.
Holy smokes! You learn something new everyday. I’m very thankful you’re
okay Mr. McMarty. I guess it really is true what they say about electricity.
Mr. Electrolux, I know now that standing in water while working with live
electrical wires is dangerous but is it okay to work on un-live wires while
standing in a pool of water? Let say if the temperature was very hot out?
Hello again Mr. Electrolux. I can’t seem to get it straight. “Standing in
water while touching live electrical wires, safe or unsafe?” Is there a
jingle that you might suggest to keep me from putting myself in harms way?
The labelling system doesn’t work for me. (The labels fall off)
Whoa! You guys are moving way too
fast for me. I’m really confused. It’s going
to take me a while to catch up, but I’m still trying.
Mart McMarty seems like a pretty smart guy
and gets this electrical safety stuff a lot better
than I do. He definitely is not like those moreons
on other websites. I just think he doesn’t want to
It might be philosopical of me but my
question, “J.” Electrolux, is that Mart Macmarty shouldn’t
be afraid of dying by electricity. Don’t all the great
religions of the world say exactly the same thing?
They say, “When you gotta go, you gotta go.”
By the way, I put the J. in question marks because
it might not really be your real initial.
“On” means on, “Off” means off. I get that part.
I see it on some “appliances”. How can I tell
when the switch is on, or off for that matter?
Thank you Mr. Electrolux for keeping us safe!
Mr. Electrolux…what is the worst thing that could happen if you attempt
to make an electrical repair with the power on? I find I’m getting
forgetful in my old age and after watching this video I fear that one day
this may slip my mind. I havent turned any appliances on in months due to
this irrational fear I’ve developed after watching this…. Damn you J
