  • A Household Electrical System Can Be Compared With A Home’s Plumbing System. Electrical Current Flows In Wires In Much The Same Way That Water Flows Inside Pipes. Both Electricity And Water Enter The Home, Are Distributed Throughout The House, Do Their “Work,” And Exit.

  • In Plumbing, Water First Flows Through The Pressurized Water Supply System. In Electricity, Current First Flows Along Hot Wires. Current Flowing Along Hot Wires Also Is Pressurized. The Pressure Of Electrical Current Is Called Voltage .
  • Large Supply Pipes Can Carry A Greater Volume Of Water Than Small Pipes. Likewise, Large Electrical Wires Carry More Current Than Small Wires. This Current‑Carrying Capacity Of Wires Is Called Amperage. Water Is Made Available For Use Through The Faucets, Spigots, And Showerheads In A Home. Electricity Is Made Available Through Receptacles, Switches, And Fixtures.
  • Water And Electricity Both Flow. The Main Difference Is That You Can See Water (And Touching Water Isn’t Likely To Kill You). Like Electricity, Water Enters A Fixture Under High Pressure And Exits Under Low Pressure.
