comment How can I improve the security around my house and prevent theft?
Do look up the laws concerning what you are allowed to do to a intruder to defend your property. Some jurisdictions don't like lethal force being used even to defend your TV.

comment Are water boilers dangerous when showering?
@GalacticCowboy depends on how sensitive it is. In some areas (like Belgium) the entire house is on a 300mA GFCI with the "wet" areas (bathroom, washing machine) on a more sensitive 30mA GFCI

If it's GFCI protected then there is even less to fear as it will shut down as soon as the fault occurs.

It contains warm water. If it felt freezing cold then something is really wrong.

comment Biggest size breaker in 200 amp panel
@FrankSposaroMSFT It is going to be likely that it will need the 150 AMPs while other appliances together also need more than 50. Heaters typically work with in a full blast then turn off cycle with the length of each section decided by a thermostat. Which means it will be drawing all those 150 AMPs during the actual heating.
