Installing a pool, especially an in-ground pool, in your yard is a major undertaking. The idea of sipping lemonade by the pool on a hot day before jumping in to cool off is an attractive one for many homeowners. Not just anyone can install a pool. There are many things that need to be done to make a pool fully functional and pass all inspections.
In order to install swimming pool wiring; there are three things that must be done:
All electrical permits must be secured – This is not that difficult or time consuming as long as you are working with experienced electricians like the ones at Robishaw Electric. Our electricians will make sure all pool equipment is up to code and passes all inspections.
A sub-panel must be wired at the equipment pad to power the pool equipment – The sub-panel is the breaker box that is installed to power all of the pool equipment. This breaker box is usually 100 amps which is likely to be too much of a load for the breaker box on your house to handle.
All metal pool components must be bonded – Bonding is not to be confused with grounding. Bonding involves using bare copper wire to connect all the metal components of the pool system. This carries stray voltage away from the pool components. The deck of the pool might require bonding as well.
