    If I got shocked in the shower I'd probably tinkle a bit, too.

    Yeah should have been a "g" not a "k" but the "k" is more appropo
    They say I shot a man named Gray and took his wife to Italy
    She inherited a million bucks and when she died it came to me
    I can't help it if I'm lucky

    They are legal if they are listed and of course installed with a permit and inspection. Just follow the installation instructions per NEC 110.3(B). Requires a 30A 1 pole GFCI breaker most likely hard wired dedicated 30A circuit.
    Hot tub, yes. Pool is supposed to have equipotential bonding network.

I'll be there again in March and would like to fly back in coach class and not in the baggage compartment.
    Take sponge baths.
