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.
