Pool Season is here! One of the best times of the year for families to get out and have some fun in the sun. However, you want to make sure you are being safe.
State Health and Safety officials are recommending annual Electrical Pool Inspections and Bi-annual inspections for older pools. This comes in the wake of a local teenage lifeguard who was electrocuted due to a faulty Ground-Fault Circuit in the pool she attended. The pool had been inspected by the State but it had NOT had an electrical inspection since 1979! This tragedy could have easily been avoided. Every year nearly 250 people are electrocuted in public pools due to faulty electrical systems. DO not put yourself at risk without knowing. Make sure your community pool has had an electrical inspection in the last year.
