Pool and Spa Lighting

Pool and Spa Lighting

We love pools and spas here at John's Electric. There is nothing better than taking advantage of the beautiful Alabama weather than going home to your swimming pool after a hard day’s work and cooling off in the pool. It’s very relaxing. The ambiance that comes from your pool and spa fixtures is equally as important as the pool itself. Everybody will comment on how beautiful your pool is.

With that said nothing is worse than having a nice beautiful pool, and the lights stop working in it. We get calls all the time at John's Electric to repair pool and spa fixtures. This is understandable because if you don’t know what you’re doing when it comes to pool and spa fixtures, electricity and water can be deadly combination. It’s always best to call an expert from John's Electric.

We can install new fixtures, lamps and make repairs to your spa or pool. We also can install and repair the electrical components of your pool, such as motors and time clocks.

Is your pool safe?

If you have any questions or concerns about your pool or spa, please give us a call today. We can do a safety check and make sure your pool has been properly grounded and bonded.

Grounding is one of most important aspects of your electrical system. Bonding is a crucial aspect of your electrical system for your home and your pool and spa. Because without it, if something goes wrong and an ungrounded conductor comes in contact with a guard rail, the pool enclosure or the water itself, the unexpected victim will receive a shock and potentially be electrocuted due to the un-cleared fault.

To keep it very simple bonding is connecting electrical devices together in the attempt to trip a breaker, if an ungrounded conductor touches surface metal associated with the system.

Your electrical system, including your pool and spa must be grounded and bonded. It must be tied into the actual earth. Electrical grounding and bonding should only be handled by a licensed contractor. No exceptions.

The National Electric Code has more rules when it comes to grounding than any other component because proper grounding and bonding practices literally means life and death. If you have any questions or concerns about the grounding and bonding in your home or business, please call the experts at John's Electric today.

Latest Tips

Spring is the perfect time for an electrical safety inspection

Tuesday, May 16, 2017

Electrical circuitry and panels tend to get ignored throughout the year and only get addressed when you experience a short circuit or electrical trips. As a homeowner, you may not know everything involved in the electrical circuitry of your home but there are still some questions you should ask your electrical inspector and Spring is the perfect time to do it!

No matter the size of the job, from changing out old electrical paneling to major renovations to your home or property, you should always ask your electrical inspector whether or not your home’s electrical fittings are up to date and in compliance with current regulations and building codes.

Secondly, be sure your electrical inspector pays attention to the safety of your electrical panel and makes sure that they are properly insulated to avoid electrical shock. Panels must also never be placed near damp or wet areas.

Understanding your electrical consumption is also important. Washing machines, televisions and air conditioners consume significant amounts of electricity, and it is your responsibility as the homeowner to be sure they are connected to the right circuitry to avoid electrical shorts or fluctuations in voltage.

Lastly, once the inspection is completed and any necessary repairs made, have your inspector run a double check to be sure all of your electrical circuitry is working properly. Ask your inspector to provide you with a complete report of all inspections and repairs done.

Why is my main breaker on the breaker panel tripping all the time

Monday, April 17, 2017

Any of these issues can cause significant injury or death by electrocution or fire. If that consistent breaker tripping occurs in your home, try turning the breaker off and then on again. If it stays on, the issue may be resolved. If not, and the breaker still trips, try to determine which part of the electrical system is causing the problem. Your safety is of utmost importance. With any electrical issue, calling your electrician (and hey we know a awesome one...you can find that awesome electrician here) first can keep you out of serious danger.

What others say about John's Electric Service

John’s Electric save’s the day.

I called for help and Aubrey came to my home when it was convenient for me. He was on time and very professional. All issues I needed to be fixed were. I am very happy with the service and the prices. I will use Aubrey again and I would recommend him to my family. Thanks so much. mvb

Aubrey did an excellent job with moving our electrical main service. He coordinated with Alabama Power and the Hoover inspectors and everyone was there when they should be. He knew that we needed a special disconnect and ordered the right one. We gave him a key and trusted him to be in and out of the house and yard when he needed to. He kept us informed, did a quality job and went over and above to come out to check on things for us after hours one evening and teach us a few things. Reasonable price as well. A true professional and I will recommend him again.
