    Tell the wife you are worried about her washing the floors.

    If money is not a thing, contact Safe-T-Cut, you can find on internet. They will come and install a GFI system in your house.

    and is the breaker single pole ?

    you need to find the other end of the cable and disconnect it - use an insulated screwdriver and dont touch bare metal and then tape up the exposed ends

    It's the grounding wire coming from the shower water heater, don't disconnect it.

    Does your wife have life insurance? If so, get her to disconnect it. It's her house I believe.

    Have you checked out your young neighbours shower room. Tell your wife to get it fixed or you will be "showering" there.

    You have 3 options imo.
    Rewire the entire house with 3 prong plugs and a proper ground.
    Build a new house
    Do nothing and get electrocuted.

    Up to you ที่รัก

    1. ~ The fact that you have just now noticed that obvious "life-threatening" safety hazard, is a topic worthy of its own thread.

    Indeed(s) your wife's twat must really be out-of-this-world fantastic, for you to be putting-up with such a level of total disrespect.

    3. ~ Advice: Be a better friend to your wife, than she obviously is to herself. Get the job done, behind her back, of course,...
    then quietly (w/ immediacy) walk away from the marriage...A word to the wise,...should be sufficient,...eh?...

    Compared to your 7 minutes to post an off-topic attack at a fellow member.

    DITTO! ^ Not an attack, on my part. Just the facts. You ^, like several others on the forum, are a mean, angry-spirited poster personality. Look at yourself ^, for a change...You ^ have the mic...

    Oh, another off-topic attack.
    ... and all for pointing out it's not a live wire, which you could easily have concluded yourself, had you bothered to read before spouting off.

    Very professional-looking job in that photo, Daddy-oh. I am sure the earth underneath that lot of tiling is going to be a good earth.

    NOT.

    People die from bad wiring. My advice is to get it sorted by someone who knows what they are doing, and get an earth leakage device.

    Have you got a pic of the consumer unit or where the power comes in? It might give an idea as to just how safe that bit of wire is.

    There is a breaker actually. Might explain why I survived the floods. I'll post a pic.

    As stroller posted in post #28 ...

    It can't really be anything else (but TiT so you never know). There could/should be an earthing rod in the ground. Leave it as it is, or perhaps put something over the wire to prevent people knocking it/tripping over it/damaging it, etc.

    Just to check what it really is, take the front cover off the shower unit and take a photo of the inside showing where all the cables go, including that one.

    Short-circuit the breaker, take out the grounding wire, if you're interested in the insurance premium.

    And, you do not troubleshoot and diagnose a potential wiring problem or hazard over the internet with photo's. Get a "qualified" specialist in there to review and repair the problem. Considering this example exists, it would behoove the poster to have the entire house electric installation reviewed for safety.
