Does BT replace old wiring?
They dont replace all the wiring, as its generally ok. They will move the socket for you to wherever you want it.
Can you be electrocuted if you’re not grounded?
Of course you can. Electricity doesn’t care if your grounded or not. If you are a potential path to complete a circuit, by yourself or in parallel or series with an existing circuit, then when you put yourself in that position you can be electrocuted regardless of being grounded or not.
Why can birds sit on power lines and not humans?
Birds can sit on power lines and not get electric shocks because the electricity is always looking for a way to get to the ground. The birds are not touching the ground or anything in contact with the ground, so the electricity will stay in the power line.
What size convex mirror do I need?
When determining the size of convex mirror, a good rule of thumb to remember is, one foot of viewing per each inch of mirror. As an example, if planning on placing a convex mirror into an area that is expected to view 25 feet, then select a convex mirror that is 26” in diameter.
