Swimming pool construction is exciting but a challenging project. From the endless permits to inspections to the physical labor involved, it is not a quick and easy job. As a company that builds swimming pools, you have a duty to those who order your services: to ensure a safe, durable swimming pool.
Hiring just any electrician to inspect your swimming pool’s electrical work will not do – and you cannot count on city or county inspectors to find electrical issues. All it takes is one faulty wire to become a safety hazard; and consequently, a serious liability for your company.
How to Hire the Right Electrician to Inspect Pool Safety
There are a lot of electricians out there, but not all professionals are skilled in swimming pool electrical systems. When looking for an electrical contractor to inspect and help you bring power to your swimming pool, consider the following to help ensure you hire the right company for the job:
- Swimming Pool Expertise – Every licensed electrician in the state is qualified to look at electrical work, but a company that has experience with swimming pool electrical systems is important. This professional is already familiar with Article 680 of the NEC and not only can help install the electrical system right the first time, but inspect it after the job is done to make sure it is sound.
- Availability – Your pool is on a timeline and it is imperative you stick to that timeline. A good electrical contractor is one that can help you meet your deadlines and does not have a busy schedule that requires you to wait weeks before they can show up at the job site.
- References – Whether you get references from customers or other contractors, check to see which electrical contractor they prefer.
- Cost – As with any project, there is always a budget. Look for an electrical contractor who gives you upfront pricing and detailed estimates. You will want a contractor that is within your electrical wiring budget, but do not sacrifice quality just because of price.
