Please see documents below for all updates on electrical issues with pools.

Issues arose in 2016 regarding the need to an electrician during the replacement of pool equipment. The FSPA worked to keep pool professionals working in the manner they have all along. A petition to initiate rulemaking was sent to the CILB. FSPA proposed that the board adopted a rule: A. defining “pool equipment” to include, but not limited to: pool lighting, pool pumps, motors, controllers, time clocks, sanitizing systems and pool water heaters; and, B. clarifying the scope of a certified pool contractor’s license to include the installation, repair and replacement of pool equipment, upto and including the electrical connection on the demand side of the power source.
