Swimming Pool Electrical Wiring

Our professionals will attain the proper permits before any of the work begins, and we'll be able to handle all technical aspects of the job. We will guarantee that all of our work will pass all inspections and be completely safe and up-to-code.

Electrical Panel Additions

It's not uncommon for you to need to have your electrical system modified when you're adding any new electrical components to your Seattle home. If your home's electrical panel is already full, it may not be able to support the addition of the extra wiring needed for your pool lighting. If that is the case, you will have two options:

  1. Install a sub-panel. This will provide more breaker space to accommodate the extra electrical need of your pool lighting. In order for this to be a viable option, however, your home's wiring will already need to be able to support the extra electrical output.
  2. Contact your electric company to request a service upgrade. It can take around six weeks for this to be completed because it requires an installation by your electric service provider. Service upgrades will increase the amount of electricity which the company sends to your home, allowing you to add more electrical components.

If you need to have your electrical panel updated in order to accommodate the new pool wiring additions, our professionals can help. We'll make sure that your Seattle home is able to fully support the additional electrical output you'll need for your pool lighting in Seattle.
