RCDS ARE SAFETY DEVICES DESIGNED TO PREVENT DEATH BY ELECTRIC SHOCK.

THESE DEVICES MONITOR THE FLOW OF ELECTRICITY WITHIN A CIRCUIT. IF THE AMOUNT OF ELECTRICITY FLOWING INTO A CIRCUIT EXCEEDS THE AMOUNT LEAVING, THE RCD AUTOMATICALLY CUTS THE ELECTRICITY SUPPLY WITHIN 10 TO 50 MILLISECONDS OF DETECTION.

AN RCD IS A LIFE-SAVING INVESTMENT FOR YOUR FAMILY. TO EFFECTIVELY REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK, RCD’S SHOULD BE SHOULD BE FITTED TO ALL POWER POINTS AND LIGHTING CIRCUITS IN YOUR HOME.

TO REDUCE INCIDENTS OF ELECTRIC SHOCK, THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT CHANGED RCD REGULATIONS IN AUGUST 2009. THE LEGISLATION DEMANDS EVERY SOLD OR LEASED HOME BE FITTED WITH A MINIMUM OF TWO RCDS, WHICH MUST PROTECT ALL POWER POINTS AND LIGHTING CIRCUITS.

TO ENSURE THAT THE RCD FUNCTIONS CORRECTLY, THE TEST BUTTON MUST BE PRESSED EVERY THREE MONTHS. PUSHING THE TEST BUTTON SIMULATES AN EARTH LEAKAGE FAULT AND INDICATES IF THE DEVICE OPERATES CORRECTLY. ELECTRICAL CLOCKS AND TIMING DEVICES MAY NEED TO BE RESET AFTER THE TEST BUTTON HAS BEEN PUSHED AND THE RCD TURNED BACK ON.

IF YOUR RCD TRIPS OR WILL NOT RESET, PLEASE DON’T FORCE IT.  THERE IS EITHER A FAULT ON THE CIRCUIT OR WITH THE RCD.  PLEASE CONTACT US FOR AN URGENT APPOINTMENT.  IF AN APPLIANCE YOU NEED IS ON THE PROBLEM CIRCUIT, TRY RUNNING AN EXTENSION CORD TO ANOTHER POWER POINT UNTIL WE CAN SORT OUT THE FAULT FOR YOU.
