Swimming pools can be an excellent source of exercise, fun and entertainment. They can also be potential death traps if the electric is installed improperly. What needs to be done to insure your equipment will perform as required and will be safe to use for many years by your family and friends?
Proper Installation of your pool’s electrical system is of paramount importance in maintaining a safe place for your friends and family to play. Article 680 of the National Electric Code governs these installations and must be adhered to strictly to insure your safe enjoyment of your pool. A mistake in this process could result in DEATH or SERIOUS INJURY to your loved ones. There are many instances every summer of people dying in pools needlessly, because of improper wiring.
Many times the technician will recommend a panel to be installed in the area around the majority of where your pool equipment is to placed. This potentially saves you money as there are very specific Codes on how wires are to be installed, placement of disconnects in relation to equipment, and many other factors that go into pool wire installations. Putting this panel near your equipment could save you thousands in additional labor or material costs as opposed to running raceways from the main panel out to the pool equipment.
Pool pumps come in many different types. We typically recommend installing 240v service to your pump. This cuts your electric consumption by half and that is a big deal since this pump will run all summer long. No matter what kind of pump you install it is imperative that it is ground fault protected and has a service disconnect within view to be able to turn it on and off to work on it. We install timers as well to help manage the power usage of your pool pump. Typical pool pumps will give you about 5 years of service before they need to be replaced. We can help you with that facet of service as well. Be it pumps, impellers, or housings we can service them for you whether your pool is indoors or outside!
Wet Niche Lighting:
Everyone loves a night swim under the stars with the water illuminated. We install wet niche lighting wiring or other LED lighting systems for pools. These installations require specialty training as well since this electric device is underwater in your pool with you. If this is improperly installed it can kill you instantly.
