I got one of these following an episode in which all of the metalwork in our house became live when rodent damage to cables resulted in protective cables becoming partially disconnected from earth and live being shorted to the protective cables. To say this was a highly dangerous situation is an understatement. After the fault was repaired, I wanted an easy to use device that would detect whether the earth was "good enough". This socket tester does exactly that. You plug it into any socket and in a few seconds it reports on the health or otherwise of the circuit and also provides an indication of how good is the house's earth. Just what I needed. I'll use it from time-to-time just to confirm that things are remaining in a safe condition.
