Customer Question
I've checked ALL circuit...

I've checked ALL circuit breaker with a voltage meter. They are good, but I still don't have power in both bathrooms. Not in the outlets or ceiling lights. Can you help.

Contractor's Assistant: How old is the system in question? And have you consulted an electrician yet?

New breakers and upgrade 10 years ago. No not an electrician yet.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Only if it is easy.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Husband tried to turn on lights in his bathroom and this is when we discovered no lights. I'm capable of installing light switches, electrical outlets. and using a voltage meter.
