What are the most important electrical safety tips to remember after a flood?

  1. Avoid entering flooded rooms.
  2. Don’t use electrical appliances that were submerged in water.
  3. Ask an expert to survey your electrical system.
  4. Replace severely damaged electrical components.


At this point, storms and hurricanes have pretty much become two of the most common natural disasters that could occur in the world. Some are stronger than others, but you can guarantee that all of them have are fully capable to cause floods. In fact, heavy rainfall is enough to drown areas in knee-deep or waist-deep floods. Aside from the health hazards that these floods pose, your electrical supplier in Metro Manila will tell you that there are also electrical hazards you should be wary of.

Most of us know of the threats that come with intense flooding so we try our best to prevent them before the rain even starts to fall. We prioritize prevention over anything else as that is what we were taught. We also know how to handle ourselves during times of disasters, but most of us are lost on the idea of post-disaster hazards and safety.

A lot of things get damaged in floods and your electrical system is no exception. Improper handling of electrical parts and components after a flood can lead to injuries and fatalities, so make sure to follow these electrical safety tips for your own benefit!

Avoid Entering Flooded Rooms

Avoid Entering Flooded Rooms

Once the rain stops pouring, it can be tempting to enter a flooded room or area in your house in order to start cleaning up, but we strongly advise against this. There are many dangers in doing this and you never know what will happen.

Without a clear view of your surroundings due to the thick and deep flood water, you could step on some dangerous things such as exposed wires. There’s also the possibility of tripping over plugs and cords, which will very likely cause accidents.

Instead of braving the flood, wait for it to subside. It may take a few hours or days depending on your drainage system, but waiting is a better option than getting injured.


Don’t Use Electrical Appliances That Were Submerged in Water

Do not immediately plug in your electrical appliances or any other electrical devices in order to check their condition after the flood has subsided. Just because the water has been drained doesn’t mean that they’re safe to use. It is, in fact, the entire opposite.

Chances are high that the appliances, devices, and things that were submerged in water are completely ruined. The only time you’re allowed to plug them in and test them out is after they’ve been inspected and evaluated by an expert.

Additionally, stay away from any electrical devices, cords or outlets that were drenched or submerged in water to keep yourself safe. These can carry currents that are strong enough to inflict severe damage.

Ask Experts to Survey

Ask an Expert to Survey Your Electrical System

The first thing you have to do after the rain has stopped and the flood has subsided is to call an expert to survey your home’s entire electrical system. You can call your local electrical company, an electrical supplier in Metro Manila, and practically anyone who has the right personnel to do it.

They should be able to evaluate the extent of damage that your electrical system and grounding and bonding system (if you have one) sustained due to the flood. After which, allow them to individually inspect plugs, cords, and wires, and mark those that are safe for use. Only after you’ve asked an expert to do this can you move on and return to your normal life.


Replace Severely Damaged Electrical Components

After you’ve had a licensed electrician check your electrical system for damage, the only thing you have to do is heed whatever advice he/she is going to give. If they say that it’s safe to use your plugs and wirings, then you’re free to use them without any worries.

However, if they deem something broken and beyond repair, then have it replaced. As said earlier, appliances and devices submerged in water are unlikely to survive floods without any sort of damage, so it is more likely that you’ll have something repaired or replaced after a flood.

It may be hard on your pockets, but it is the smarter decision as it keeps you safe from any electrical hazards. Besides, even if they do survive a flood, their lives will be short-lived and you will have to replace them in the very near future anyway.


Key Takeaway

Electrical hazards don’t go away after the rain stops pouring or the flood subsides. You are in constant danger until after you’ve had your electrical systems and appliances inspected and cleared for use. The only way to do this is to call your electrical company or electrical supplier and have them send a licensed technician to have a look at your home. Prior to an expert inspection, do your best to stay away from flooded rooms and avoid plugging in your appliances and systems. These guidelines should help keep you safe and bring regular electrical function back to your home after a flood!

Holiday Inn Express Newport City is a part of Resorts World Manila, the Philippines’ first integrated resort, with world-class thrills ranging from dining, shopping, gaming, cinemas, and live entertainment. Resorts World is well-known when it comes to their high-class hotels, entertainment and gaming. They have four lodging brands in the country- the luxury all-suite Maxims Hotel, five-star Marriott Hotel Manila, Holiday Inn Express and Belmont Hotel Manila. Resorts World is a joint venture with Megaworld; the largest residential developer in the country.


Holiday Inn Express recently purchased MGF-250 for all their rooms from Meiji Electric; the leading supplier of the best Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter in the Philippines. Their luxury all-suite Maxims Hotel and five-star Marriott Hotel Manila have also purchased GFCI: MGF-250. Resorts World Manila trusts only Meiji Electric in protecting their clients, guests and employees in line with electrical safety.


The best-selling GFCI MGF-250 comes with a New SELF-TEST Feature.  


So, what is a Self-Test GFCI Receptacle?

It is a receptacle that regularly tests the ground fault circuit interrupter function by itself, and then cuts off the power to that receptacle when the ground fault circuit interrupter function fails. The UL (Underwriters Laboratories) made it a requirement that all suppliers of GFCI should make them self-testing, effective  June 2015 in order for them to be UL listed, the revision requires periodic automatic monitoring/self-testing of the GFCI’s ability to respond to a ground fault.  According to the Standard, if the device detects a problem during auto-testing, the GFCI must either deny power to the outlet or provide a visual and/or audible indication. This is a pretty cool idea because most people don’t test their regular GFCIs often, or not at all. When a regular GFCI receptacle isn’t tested by the consumer for the ground fault circuit interrupter function, it may not be doing its job correctly, and could cause electrical shock. In short, with this Self-Test feature you don’t need to test your GFCI every month.



A combination of an International and a Universal Outlet

The MGF250 has a combination of an International and a Universal Outlet unlike other traditional GFCI’s, which are usually  Duplex Parallel Flat Pin convenience outlets ( C.O.’s) with Ground. The MGF250 works on any plug without any need for bulky adaptors. The MGF250 is considered one of the best in the market since it is classified as Class A in accordance with UL943. This is because all four types of Meiji Electric’s GFCI’s have a maximum 6mA sensitivity rating, unlike other GFCIs being sold in the markets which only have 15mA rating or even higher, making those other brands very dangerous for human lives  when used inappropriately.

Important in both homes and business establishments

GFCI’s are very important in both homes and business establishments, as it monitors an electrical circuit and detects even the slightest flow of electricity to a grounded item. A GFCI immediately shuts off the flow of electricity, thus protecting people from electrocution. It is particularly essential to install in areas where people could come in contact with exposed or faulty grounded items inside bathrooms and kitchens.

The Meiji MHWP series weatherproof enclosure is one of the unique best selling items here at Meiji Electric. Due to this, we decided to release a new and improved version that can accommodate your circuit breakers up to 26 poles. The Meiji MHMWP series weatherproof enclosure IP65 MHWP 03, MHWP 05, MHWP 09, MHWP 13 and MHWP 26 enclosures are designed to give protection to your breakers against various weather elements without deterioration.

Today, there are multiple types of enclosures which are made of various materials and with multiple ratings, so it’s hard to know which outdoor enclosure will be more ideal, less expensive and will be able to stand the test of time. Here are the steps that you should consider when choosing a weatherproof enclosure.



Where will your sensitive electrical equipment be located?

  • Outdoors?
  • Close to salt water or in a hot, dusty area?
  • In the shade or in full sunlight?
  • On a pole or mounted to a wall?


Airborne debris, rain and other environmental elements can damage your improperly installed electrical enclosure. For example, salt spray is highly corrosive and can cause metallic enclosures even made of stainless steel to rust. So it would be better to purchase an outdoor weatherproof enclosure that is made of polycarbonate thermoplastic material.


Meiji IP65 Weatherproof enclosure MHWP09

Meiji IP65 Weatherproof enclosure MHWP09


The Meiji MHWP series weatherproof enclosure uses materials that are resistant to ultraviolet radiation. These materials were all tested according to ISO 4892-2, Method A Cycle 1 with a total test period of 500 hours based on 5170F-UV-A specification. In other words, the Meiji MHWP series weatherproof enclosures are designed to withstand extreme sunlight heat and other similar conditions. Therefore, these enclosures will never get brittle or damaged due to outdoor sunlight situations.



If your enclosure is to be located in an area that is regularly rainy, or has damp weather conditions then IP65 would suit you.

IP rating is a standard that is used to define the levels of sealing effectiveness of electrical enclosures against intrusion from foreign bodies such as dirt and water. The rating consists of the letters IP followed by 2 digits, the digit stands for the level of protection that the enclosure provides against solid bodies, the second digit describes the degree of protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against water.





As you can see from the chart above, the Meiji MHWP series weatherproof enclosures which are rated at IP65, can protect your circuit breakers from total dust ingress and low pressure water jets from any direction. And due to its polycarbonate thermoplastic material,  the Meiji MHWP series weatherproof enclosures will never rust or corrode in any rainy or damp outdoor situation.

There are enclosures available for almost every price point. Pricing depends on materials and customization like UL Standard NEMA 3R for outdoors or NEMA 4X which is a stainless enclosure that is quite expensive. The Meiji MHWP series weatherproof enclosure features a modern-day design that has a smoky cover which allows you to view the circuit breakers inside. It is made of a special polycarbonate thermoplastic material to protect your circuit breakers from sun, rain, dirt, oil and spraying water. Unlike the usual metal NEMA 3R enclosures, which tend to rust and discolor over a period of time, the Meiji MHWP series weatherproof enclosures will not deteriorate even when exposed to heavy rain and sunlight. Yet compared to a NEMA 3R enclosure, the price is practically the same. It is also very affordable compared to  NEMA 4X stainless enclosures. The Meiji MHWP series weatherproof enclosures cost less than one half compared to NEMA 4X enclosures. It comes in different models MHWP 03, MHWP 05, MHWP 13 and MHWP 13 and MWHP 26 which can house 3,5,9,13 and up to 26 poles of miniature circuit breakers, ranging from 1 ampere to 125 ampere frame.

With new technological advancements and gadgets being released, we all have multiple devices to charge every day. From phones, to tablets, to smart watches. An average person could be charging 3 to 4 devices each day, and every gadget needs a USB cable and adaptor to charge. This all leads to tangled USB cables, bulky wall adaptors and a short supply of wall outlets.


Solution to this charging dilemma

There is a solution to this charging dilemma though, The Meiji 2.1 USB wall outlet.

Meiji USB Outlet 2.1A

Meiji 1-3 Gang USB Outlets 2.1A


The Meiji USB outlet 2.1A (MCS-0524) is the latest and upgraded USB outlet that can accommodate all of your gadgets that uses the standard USB cord. The advantage of using the Meiji USB wall socket is it’s convenience. With a regular outlet, the outlets are used up by bulky wall adaptors. When you install the Meiji USB outlet 2.1A, the regular outlets will freed up and your electrical gadgets can be connected directly to the wall rather than through adaptors.


Not all USB outlets are created equal, though. A standard USB amperage output is 1A. All USB devices will charge on low amperage ports, but devices with large batteries–like the latest laptops, tablets, smartphones will take a long time to fully recharge on lower amperage ports. So for those devices, it’s better to use the Meiji 2.1 USB outlet to charge them, as it can charge twice as fast than a regular 1A USB outlet.

Meiji USB 2.1A Combination Outlet

Meiji Electric- the leading electrical supplier in the Philippines, have always taken pride in introducing innovative items to the market. They were the first company to aggressively offer the Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI), Marine Vapor Lamps, Contactor Transfer Switches (CTS), Key Card Control System and Home Panel Boards (MHP) in the Philippines. With company’s continuous endeavor to occupy significant items in the Electrical Controls market, Meiji Electric is proud to introduce the “Meiji White Panel Board”.


Meiji White Panel


The Meiji White Panel is a combination of Metal Panel Box and the Meiji Home Panel Plastic Cover. This was made as a response to the increasing needs of consultants and contractors who needs a bigger Ampere capacity for their main circuit breakers. Doesn’t ring a bell? Let me explain it to you:

What is a Panel Board?

The National Electrical Code® (NEC®) defines a panel board as a single panel or group of panel units designed for assembly in the form of a single panel, including buses and automatic over-current devices, and equipped with or without switches for the control of light, heat, or power circuits; designed to be placed in a cabinet or cutout box placed in or against a wall, partition, or other support; and accessible only from the front.

In summary, according to the NEC® definition, panel boards are:

  • Used to control light, heat, or power circuits
  • Placed in a cabinet or cutout box
  • Mounted in or against a wall
  • Accessible only from the front

Panel Boards are used in residential, commercial buildings and industrial facilities to safely control the distribution of electrical power throughout the facility. Most of us are familiar with the panel board found in a regular home. Power, purchased from a utility company like Meralco, enters the house through a metering device or what we normally call kilowatt hour meter. The power is then distributed from a load center to various branch circuits for lighting, appliances, and electrical outlets.


Now that you know what a panel board is, you are probably wondering what’s so special about the Meiji White Panel board? Hint: It is not just about the color.

The Meiji White Panel Board is a customized panel that is a hybrid of metal panel board and the Meiji Home Panel.


What is a Meiji Home Panel?

The Meiji Home Panel are modular distribution boxes applicable to electric circuit terminals rated at 220V Line to Line or 400V Line to Neutral. It is beautifully designed for simple installation and disassembly. It is widely used in household, tall buildings, townhouse residences, condominiums, etc. The plastic components of MHP modular panel box adapts to fire resistant ABS, which is impact resistant. It has convenient din rail and height adjustment features, as well as provisions for neutral and grounding.

Meiji Home Panel


Due to the compact design of the Meiji Home Panel, it can only accommodate a miniature circuit breaker up to 125 Ampere rating. This is the common problem of contractors since bigger houses require main breakers with higher ampacity. They will have to buy an independent enclosure for the main breaker and place the branches in a separate Meiji Home Panel.

To solve this problem, Meiji Electric came up with the Meiji While Panel– a newly designed panel board that shares the same good qualities of the Meiji Home Panel but only better because it can now accommodate a Molded Case Circuit breaker of 225A and even higher.


Meiji White Panel Board


With this advancement, you will no longer need a separate enclosure for your main circuit breaker. Some of you might be wondering, why not just get a standard panel board and get it over? The thing is, Meiji Home Panels and the White Panel Board are less expensive than the standard metal panel board. Add that they are very aesthetically appealing, therefore you don’t need to hide them in your kitchen cabinet. ‘Less expensive’ does not mean less quality, though, Meiji Electric has been in the marketing and fabrication of electrical control products for more than 30 years now, and with their vast number of customers, you can be assured of the quality and reliability of all their products. As a matter of fact, a leading construction and contracting company in the Philippines recently acquired a number of “Meiji White Panel” for the new townhouses that they are developing in New Manila, Quezon City. With this new partnership, expect to see more of the “Meiji White Panels” across the metro.


Meiji White Panel Interior


Like the Meiji Home Panel, the Meiji White Panel can also accommodate up to 40x2P branches. Match them with the PS Quality Certified Meiji Miniature Circuit Breakers for your utmost electrical protection. No competing product comes close in terms of features, ease of use and price.



Meiji Electric LVSG

Lighting and Distribution Panel Boards

Meiji Electric also offers Lighting and Distribution Panel Boards that can be customized to meet specific customer needs, without compromising the high degree of standards and engineering. Manual Transfer Switch (MTS), Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS), Low Voltage Switch Gears (LVSG), Main Distribution Panels (MDP), Capacitor Banks, Busbar Gutters, Control Box and Frequency Inverter Controlled Systems, and related items are also available.

When it comes to the safety of your family, homes and establishments, power and electricity is not something that should be taken lightly. Trust only the best to have a peace of mind and avoid complications in the future.

There are so many models to choose from,  some have built-in decors such as star, angel, candle sticks, multicolor light bulbs and Christmas balls. Selected models also comes with a button control where you can set the color and lights to 8 different sequences like combination, waves, sequential, slow glow, chasing/flash, slow fade, twinkle, and steady on. The best thing about this tree is its energy efficiency as it consumes 10 times less energy compared to ordinary Christmas bulbs.
