Electrical Safety Inspections for Swimming Pools
Because there are a number of electrical components that are installed in a swimming pool, attention should be given to those elements to ensure that the pool is safe and free from any possible malfunctions that could lead to injury. As most pools in Raleigh were built between 1970 and 1990, many still run on the original electrical circuits and equipment from the initial installation. The best way to keep your family safe is to conduct a full, intensive inspection of the pool to check that electrical equipment is up-to-date and that the pool is leak-free.
While the law in North Carolina does not stipulate that regular electrical inspections of swimming pools needs to take place, they do require regular inspections. And it important that those inspections include a look at the electrics of a pool. There is also no requirement that old electrics be replaced so, to ensure that the pool is in top working condition and safe for use, pool inspections should be scheduled once a year in spring before the pool is used in the summer months.
It’s a good idea to schedule an electrical pool inspection if there are any warning signs including:
- Pool lights that flicker
- Swimmers feel that they aren’t able to move around freely
- Swimmers have a tingling sensation when in the pool
