What does a pool electrician do?
Installing a new pool or spa? You may be a bit unsure who does what when it comes to the trades involved in the electrical appliance installation and lighting for your new pool or spa. Here’s how it works.
– Your pool specialist or installer will supply and install the electrical appliances and equipment such as the pool lighting, pumps and heating as part of the installation of the pool or spa itself.
– As your pool electrician, we take care of getting the power from your electrical system safely to the location it is needed (your pool or spa).
For new pools and spas, the pool electrician covers the overall electrical design and installation (wiring, cabling, switchboard upgrades if needed) and any ongoing maintenance and repairs afterward.
Do electricians install pool lights?
If you are installing a new pool or spa, the pool lighting is normally installed by the pool specialist as part of the overall installation.
If you have an existing pool or spa and you are upgrading the lighting, Gorham Electrical can supply and install your new pool lights. Our experienced team can provide advice on pool lighting types for the effect you’re looking for and to suit your outdoor decor – whether it be mood lighting, decorative or practical/safety lighting.
