Electricity and water can be a deadly mix. If you use any electrical equipment around water you should go to a hardware store and by a circuit breaker for your machine to plug into. These circuit breakers come in a variety. Some are a small box that plugs into outlet and some are on a short cord that plugs into an outlet. You then plug your equipment into this box. These are designed to trip in case of shortage or fault in the electrical flow. You can not always depend on a breaker in a breaker box to trip. I have saw this happen in the past and it burned up a register. You also don't always know how many amps the outlet is own. Example ; the circuit breaker you buy to plug your machine into may be 15 amps where the main outlet may be wired to a 30 amp fuse. Any rate these circuit breakers can be found at Lowe's for around $24. Not very much of an investment when considering the alternative. Also check your cords regular for any flaws. If the cord has any cuts that go deep enough to hit the wire itself you should replace the whole cord and not just put tape around it.
