How can I convert 250V recepticle to 110?
In my bathroom is a recepticle with 2 horizontal eyes and a D-shaped
mouth. One of the eyes has a vertical T component as well. The unit
is marked 20A 250V. It was likely installed with the bathroom

black-insulated wire running to a green screw. The feed is flexible
metal conduit. When I poke my $5 tester in the eyes it lights up two

What needs to be done to covert this recepticle to a standard
Thanks in advance
