It’s almost summertime, which means it’s time to prepare your pool!
Today, let’s explore how a pool electrician can help keep your pool safe and well-lit. We’ll also look at some common pool system issues and how to troubleshoot them.
How do electricians ensure your pool is safe?
First and foremost, ensuring pool safety is critical.
A qualified pool electrician, like Yoder Electric, can guarantee that your pool complies with regulations and is correctly grounded. They can also check the wiring and electrical components for possible hazards, such as frayed wires or corroded connections.
They can also install timers and sensors to regulate pool equipment like pumps and heaters, which minimizes the risk of overheating or overloading.
Upgrade your pools lighting system
Let’s be honest you don’t just want your pool to be safe. It has to look inviting too. Why not add a bit of flair to your pool area, consider enhancing your lighting system.
Yoder Electric can install energy-efficient LED lights that consume less electricity and last longer than traditional bulbs. LED lights come in various hues and can be programmed to change automatically, creating that Las Vegas ambience for your pool gatherings.
If you ask nicely they can also put in some underwater lights. Trust us, folks, these look stunning and make swimming in the dark safer by illuminating the water.
How To Troubleshoot Your Pool
Occasionally, even a well-maintained pool can have issues; it just comes with the perks of owning one. Here are some common problems to look out for:
No power to pool equipment: Check the circuit breaker or GFCI to see if it has tripped. If it has, reset it and try again. If it keeps tripping, reach out to Yoder Electric.
The pump is not working: Check the pump basket for debris and ensure a sufficient pool water level. If the issue persists, call a pool expert.
Water chemistry problems: Test the pool water for pH, chlorine, and alkalinity levels. Adjust as needed. Be sure you know how to do this before you mix chemicals that could be potentially dangerous
Leaks: If you notice a drop in the water level, inspect the pool for leaks. Check the pump, filter, and plumbing connections for any indications of leakage. If you can’t locate the source of the leak, it’s time to contact a professional.
