Electrical Safety By The Pool

What’s better than hanging out by the pool on a beautiful summer day? Not much if you ask us. But since 1990, there have been 60 electrocutions and 50 serious electrical shocks involving hazards in and around swimming pools. So, what you do to stay safe? See below to find out:


  • Make sure all outdoor receptacles are covered. This is especially important for outlets located near pools, spas and anywhere else there is water.
  • Use GFCIs for outdoor electronic devices. These can help prevent electrocutions and electrical shock.
  • Make sure all pool equipment is grounded. This includes cleaning equipment as well.
  • Never handle electrical devices when you are wet. Keep them at least 10 feet away from water sources.
  • Have an electrician inspect your pool or spa’s electronics to make sure they are in accordance with the National Electrical Code.
