Earthing Pool Spigots: Imperative For The Safety of Your Family
Since January 1st, 2019 it has become a legal requirement (AS3000 Electrical Safety Code) to earth conductive metal fences and pool fence spigots within 1.25 metres of the pool. Many homeowners are unaware of the potential dangers if electrical guidelines are not met. Many components of a pool fence are made from metals, and these components can be extremely dangerous if they become electrically charged.
The dangers and legal requirements of the heights and safety measures regarding pool fencing are well-known, however the risks associated with the electrical components are less known and often undervalued. The AS3000 Clause 220.127.116.11.5 states that conductive fittings attached to the pool such as ladders, diving boards and anything within arm’s reach of the pool edge (1.25 metres per clause 1.4.16) such as conductive fences must be bonded. This ensures that the utmost safety is upheld as metal components can become very dangerous if it becomes electrically charged and if a person within the pool touches the electrically charged component.
