Each time you tell us you know what youre doing, and each time what
you say demonstrates that you dont understand the safety issues, and
are doing things that endanger peoples' lives. You dont appear to
A bathroom socket not being in reach of a water outlet does NOT make
it safe to use a non GFCI protected outlet. Not in any way. Wet people
dont have to be immersed to die. And replacing the socket is not a way
to diagnose the problem anyway.
If you are going to go ahead anyway due to lack of money, I can
understand that, but I for one don't want any involvement in that.
Someone else might decide to tell you how to find your open neutral,
not me. I think you should be concentrating on how to get the money to
pay for an electrician.
Meanwhile I'm thinking about nominating you for a Darwin award.
