Expert:  Eddie replied 2 months ago.

we'll need that other tester then to test the breaker.......actually even a better one also with 2 prongs that will give you the voltage ........if maybe you'll want to spring for it...................it is always a good tool to have when you own a home........or borrow one from a friend or neighbor........let me know when you get it

Thanks
