Shocks and tingles

If anyone in your property feels a tingle or shock from electrical equipment, a tap, or other metal fittings, don’t ignore it—it’s a sign that something’s not right and could be fatal.

If the shock is from using or touching permanent electrical equipment (like a stove or electric hot water system), contact a licensed electrician and tell your tenant to stop using it immediately.

If the shock is from a tap, pipe or other metal fitting call Energex, Essential Energy or Ergon Energy immediately and ask them to check your property.
