Pool & Hot Tub Wiring
In some localities, local permits are needed before installing a spa or hot tub and local regulations require a licensed electrician to make the connection to your home’s electrical system. Whatever your local requirements happen to be, for safety’s sake, remember the old saying: water and electricity don’t mix.
It’s vital to have a qualified electrician take care of your pool and hot tub wiring– not only for installation but also inspection and repair. The Canadian Electrical Code is regularly upgraded for everyone’s protection. AJ’s Electricians will ensure your pool and hot tub wiring is safe and compliant with the Canadian Electrical Code.
For example, to meet Code requirement, spas and pools are required to have a disconnect switch that allows the user to turn the power on or off to the spa or hot tub. In most cases, this is a timer switch that will count down and turn itself off. The disconnect must be safely out of range from the water’s edge to ensure that a person can’t have their foot in the water while touching the switch, resulting in electrocution.
Other electricity and water concerns include:
- the proximity of power and telecommunication lines
- proximity to underground wiring
- proper grounding of nearby outlets
Water and electricity do not mix and electrical safety is vital so ensure that you have our electrician take care of your pool and hot tub wiring.
