Pool Equipment Power
Most pools today have an equipment pad with a sub-panel that contains breakers for the pool electrical wiring and equipment. This equipment may include a filter pump, GFCI outlet, clock and timer, heater, air blower, lights, and more. This sub-panel is connected to the house’s panel, where it gets power. There are some older pools that have only a switch for the filter pump, and one for the lights.
Repairing and Installing Pool Wiring and Equipment
This is where pool equipment power repairs come in. Water and electricity, even pool electrical wiring, do not go well together; they’re a hazard. Loose wires are a danger, as are broken and loose cover plates. Broken connections and conduits are also dangerous. All pool powering equipment must be operated safely, and well-maintained.
You must also make sure you have the right equipment to power your pool. There are many pool pumps from which you can choose, as well as pool heaters, lights, timers, filters, and more. With so many options from which to choose, finding the right power for pool equipment can seem like a daunting job. It helps to have a professional pool electrician who can aid you in making the right decision, whether you’re installing power for your first pool, or you’re replacing or upgrading pool equipment.
Never try to repair your pool wiring or power equipment in general, unless you’re a professional. If it fails when you try to operate it, call a professional electrician. There are many dangers involved in working with power sources, particularly close to water. An expert in pool equipment knows how to repair pool wiring and parts, or install new ones, should they need replacing.
