Dr. Phil and the bathtub do not mix
I came across an interesting deficiency during a recent home inspection: a TV installed just above a jetted tub. The TV did not have a remote, so I envisioned the homeowner standing in the water and surfing the channels. I advised the owner of the potential electrical shock hazard of this configuration, but he saw no problem with the TV in the tub and planned to continue enjoying Dr. Phil while bathing.
