Irrigation & watering
Power lines and water are a dangerous mix
Water and electricity are a dangerous mix. Never allow water to spray on power lines. A hose or pipe spraying a power line can create a direct current through the watering equipment.
Use low-angle irrigation equipment to maintain a safe clearance between the water jet and wires.
Before moving irrigation equipment, look up and around you and note any power lines that could be close enough to come into contact with equipment—and stay clear.Any contact between the long equipment and nearby electrical lines could be fatal or cause serious injury.
