The weather in Ohio today is HOT! What a perfect day to relax at the pool! While pools are a great way to keep cool this summer they can also pose some safety risks. Brushing up on some of these tips will keep your family safe this summer while beating the heat.
- “If you are putting in a new pool, hot tub, or spa be sure the wiring is performed by an electrician experienced in the special safety requirements for these types of installations.
- Outdoor receptacles must have covers that keep them dry even when appliances are plugged into them.
- Ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) are special devices designed to protect against electric shock and electrocution. They are required for most pool, spa or hot tub equipment. They may be in the form of an outlet or a circuit breaker. Test the GFCIs monthly according to the manufacturer’s instructions.”
