Safety and electrical connection standards
It is important to be informed about the specific safety standards relating to the electrical connections of swimming pools and spas. You can count on the competence and experience of Entreprises d'Électricité Paradis Inc., which has made it a specialty.
Here are some excerpts from a text by the Régie du bâtiment on safety around swimming pools:
Private swimming pools are popular for the comfort and pleasure they provide. However, due to the electrical equipment with which they are equipped, they present a risk of electrical accident which can be fatal if safety measures are not applied. Indeed, a current leak in the electrical equipment of a swimming pool can cause a shock resulting in death.
Electrical equipment must be installed according to precise standards. For this reason, only a master electrician is allowed to perform such work.
