North Carolina summers are known for two things: heat and humidity. Because of this, many residents flock to swimming pools this time of year, whether in their back yard (residential) or a local community (commercial). Pools are a great way to relax and beat the heat. They also require a lot of upkeep, including annual or bi-annual Swimming Pool Electrical Inspections.

While older pools are at the highest risk, ALL pools should be inspected annually or bi-annually. Aging electrical wiring, faulty underwater lighting, sump pumps, vacuums, and other electrical equipment require periodic inspections to ensure everything is safe, working properly, up to code, and protected by Ground-Fault Circuit-Interrupters (GFCIs) – the best safety device to prevent electrocution.

Warning signs of a problem:

  • Swimmers feel a tingling sensation.
  • Flickering pool lights.
  • The feeling as though something is holding you in place.

*Wake County is currently strengthening pool inspection regulations and pushing for new laws to increase the safety of community pools.

Homeowners Tip:

Have your pool inspected. You should have all electrical components inspected when your pool is first built – not only is it smart, but it’s likely the law in your area. It’s also a good idea to have an older pool inspected periodically, especially if you don’t know the history. If you’re considering moving into a house that already has a pool, have it inspected before you buy.
