Exercise your wires

Wiring Tip #303
Just like people need exercise to remain strong, wiring is no different. People neglect this, and then they wonder why their wiring has failed. Wires should be exercised at least once every 3 months. It's not that hard to do. Simply shut off the power. Then remove every outlet, switch, and fixture in the house. Then flex each and every wire in the box at least 100 times. This will make your wires strong. If any wires break, they are already weak and need to be replaced. Do this every 3 months, or sooner and keep your wires strong. It's recommended that you contact an electrician prior to exercising your wires, just in case any of them break and you need an electrician to replace them. That's why it's best to never exercise your wires on a weekend or holiday if an electrician can not be gotten. Of course if you're handy and stock up on wire, then it dont matter when you do it.
