Residual Current Device (RCD)

Many of the blogs i have written in the past mention how important it is to have an RCD fitted in your home. Although i've explained the importance of having one, i've never actually explained what an RCD does and how it protects the household.

problem of course here is that there is no guarantee that the work is safe nor is it certified maeaning the work not only puts the home and family members at risk but it
