You Can Trust Our Licensed Technicians
You’ve no doubt heard the old saying that water and electricity don’t mix. And when it comes to your hot tub or pool, it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
Using a pool or spa comes with inherent safety issues to worry about, but your electrical system shouldn’t be one of them.
Whether you’re installing a pool or hot tub for the first time or you’ve used one for years, here are some reasons to call a trusted electrical contractor to keep you and your family safe.
Grounding & Bonding Inspection
Even if you’re not an electrician, you’re probably familiar with grounding, but when it comes to your pool or hot tub, bonding is just as important.
Since 2008, the National Electrical Code has mandated that pool water be electrically bonded. These bonding requirements apply to above and in-ground pools and include metal components like ladders, equipment, and the water itself.
Without adequate bonding, you can experience small electric jolts when in the water.
Our certified electricians ensure that everyone will have a safe, fun experience by correctly bonding and grounding your pool or hot tub.
Old Technology Inspection
If you’ve used your pool or hot tub for years, it’s easy to become lax about safety. However, just because things have been working without issue doesn’t mean your electrical system is safe or up to current codes and standards.
As part of your seasonal pool or hot tub preparation, call a certified electrician to inspect and troubleshoot your electrical system for everyone’s safety.
GFCI Outlet Inspection
Your pool or hot tub is most likely near a GFCI outlet. Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter outlets reduce the risk of electric shock by automatically shutting off an electrical circuit when it senses current flowing in the wrong direction.
GFCI outlets are essential in places where water and electricity can mix. The last thing you need is a radio or some other electrical device to fall into the water when people are swimming or enjoying the hot tub.
Our certified electricians will inspect your GFCI outlets to ensure they’re working correctly and replace them if needed. Most people don’t realize it, but you should replace your GFCI outlets every ten years because their safety circuitry can wear out.
A pool or hot tub is meant to be enjoyed, and calling Southwest Florida Electric Inc. for an electrical safety inspection is the best way to ensure that happens.
