I am frequently surprised how many new customers’ homes I go to that are paying over $300 pa more than they need to, to run their pool. They are just as surprised to learn that in Queensland, Energex offer a $250 cash back incentive to assist with the cost saving!
It’s concerning to see some installations inadequately protecting the inherent electrical dangers. Australian Standards (3000) refers to equipotential bonding, electrical separation and residual current protection for very good reason. It takes only a small amount of voltage within a pool area to cause the muscles of a human body to contract. This issue can be very problematic and drowning has occurred as a result.
If you are interested in a quote from a local electrician that will take the safety of the pool electrical installation seriously and offer good advice on keeping the running costs down, feel free to call me on 0430 493 7560405 401 9070405 401 907 or email me at [email protected].
