If the plug is underwater, will it not trip the breaker?

comment Running electric cables in basement shop
It strikes me funny that so much emphasis is put on protecting the cable when in reality, plugging my table saw into an outlet causes the power cord to become an extension of the circuit and it has NO protection beyond the jacket it comes in. And how many people run their extension cords through conduit before using them just in case they drop a chisel on it? I'm all for doing things safely and minimizing risk, and for that reason I chose metal conduit over plastic. Thanks to all that posted.

Well, I would guess that a dropped hammer would not cause damage to PVC or metal conduit, but I understand what you are getting at. Thanks.

comment Using fire rated drywall/sheetrock in a partially finished basement
Yeah, that's kind of what I found as well. But because I don't have a finished ceiling and can't really (without a LOT of work) completely close off the area, I'm thinking the fire rated drywall isn't going to offer a great deal of protection anyway. For example, the floor joists above will burn with or without the fire rated drywall.
