What is a Weatherproof GPO?

A weatherproof general power outlet (GPO) is an electrical outlet that can be used outdoors and installed on outdoor walls, patios, decks, and other places. They are a safe and simple method to provide electricity to outside appliances and equipment because of their resistance to harsh weather conditions such as rain, snow and extreme temperatures. A weatherproof GPO normally comes with a weatherproof cover to protect it from moisture and dust, ensuring that it stays functional and safe to use.

They are a great addition to any outdoor living space since they can be used to run a variety of things, including lights, electric grills, speakers, as well as to control power tools such as leaf blowers, hedge trimmers, and lawn mowers, making outside labour much easier and more convenient.

Waterproof Outdoor Power Point

Each outdoor power point is fitted with weatherproof switch casings. When appropriately fitted, these weatherproof casings make your outdoor electrical supply incredibly safe by preventing water from entering the power outlet. They are available in a wide range of materials, from plastic and rubber to wood, and each has its own unique safety feature to protect electrical outlets. In the event of an electrical fault, certain switches have an RCD mechanism that instantly disconnects power.

Why Choose an Outdoor Power Point?

An outdoor power point allows you to put your outside areas to good use. Having electricity accessible outside can save you a lot of time and effort, when you want to set up a BBQ grill, operate a power tool or utilise outdoor lights.

A waterproof outdoor power point also allows you to improve electrical safety. It’s risky to use electrical extension cords inside the house or to put wires through an open window. An outdoors general power outlet is a more secure means of bringing power to your garden. As they are weatherproof, you don’t need to worry about wet conditions like rain or snow ruining them.

One other factor to consider is that the installation of a general power outlet in your garden might even increase the value of your property. Having a well-equipped outside space can enhance the desirability and marketability of your house. Potential buyers will enjoy the convenience, so you may receive a more favourable offer.
