Electrical Question from Sue about Electrical Codes for an Above Ground Pool
Background: Sue, a Homeowner from Danvers, MA
[ad#block]Question: My electrician is trying to ground my above ground pool. There is no metal on the pool supports. They are all resin (plastic) Do you have a suggestion about what he can do?

Dave’s Reply:
Thanks for your electrical question Sue.
If the pool is an above ground and is considered storable then the following codes apply:
All electrical equipment used with storable pools are required to be GFCI Protected.
All 125-volt outlets or receptacles within 2o feet of the inside walls of a pool require GFCI Protection.
Receptacles or Outlets are not permitted within  10 feet from the inside walls of a storable pool.
Receptacles or outlets rated for 15 or 20 amps and are 125 through 250 volts which supply the pool pump motors are required to be GFCI Protected.
