centers on stray electricity entering a body of water from
many different sources: faulty wiring, improper
grounding/bonding, shorts, equipment failure, underwater
lights, bad installations and do-it-yourselfers. Even
from neighboring docks and the power company itself.
This electricity canít be seen or heard . . . a silent,
GFCI circuits/outlets are the only form of protection that
stands between the electricity and the water you swim and
boat in. GFCI circuits fail frequently and can be damaged by
repeated power surges and near-by lightning. Most GFCI
outlets are not made in the USA. GFCI circuits should be
tested monthly but most people donít realize this and have
never Ďtestedí their GFCIís.
Should the water become electrified in some way, the
potential for a fatal tragedy of Electric Shock Drowning or
electrocution is ever present for people entering or in the
The Solution: Since there is NO way to know if the
water is electrified, the solution is to install a warning
1) monitors the water 24/7
2) sounds a warning alarm
3) trips a GFCI circuit/outlet shutting down the power.
similar in concept to a Smoke Alarm, except it monitors the
water instead of the air.
The Answer: Shock-Guard 24/7 monitors the water 24/7, sounds
a warning alarm and trips a GFCI circuit. This shuts
down the power, potentially SOLVING THE PROBLEM. The unit
can also monitor multiple areas of the water, such as 4
sides of a dock or slips in a marina and provides remote
warning notification, through a security monitoring company.
