Water and electrical components can be a dangerous combination. Be sure to test your GFCI monthly to be sure it is functioning correctly. A GFCI receptacle can be tested with the built-in test button, which will cause a small ground fault, tripping a properly working device.
To test your GFCI you should:
Push the “reset” button on the GFCI
Plug in a light or small appliance (turn on)
Push the “test” button – the light or small appliance should turn off
Push the “reset” button – the light or small appliance should turn on
If your GFCI does not function as above you should contact Alight Gas & Electric to have the GFCI checked and repaired.
