This course covers the electrical requirements in the California Electrical Code, Article 680, for permanently installed swimming pools, storable swimming pools, spas, hot tubs and fountains. Topics covered include wiring methods, grounding and bonding, lighting and receptacle locations, motors and GFCI requirements. Also, students learn an overview of the plumbing, mechanical and pool barrier requirements. Discussion also includes suction fittings and pumps, heaters, luminaires, pool access (fencing, gates, pool covers, and pool alarms) and location of various equipment. This information is essential for both installers and inspectors to ensure life safety in and around these wet locations where the combination of water, electricity and personnel demand a hazard-free experience.
