Whether it is servicing pools or doing pool repairs and inspections, I am amazed at the poor and unsafe condition of many of the electrical connections and controls associated with the operation of the pool equipment. This is a concern for both the pool owner and our technicians.
Please, please folks remember the old “saw” that water and electricity don’t mix!! Some of the more frequent problems I see are:
Missing safety covers and exposed connections on the typical pool timers.
Think about sticking your finger in the timer on the left to turn on your equipment! (Especially in the evening wearing flip flops!)
