    Our Experience as a Residential Pool Electrician

    Our pool electrician services have been a part of our service lineup for many years. We are incredibly adept and well-versed in understanding pool electrical needs. In many cases, we prefer the pool to be installed before our electricians arrive for our part of the project, though we recognize that this isn’t always possible.

    And because we offer Design-Build services, we can meet with you early on and establish the layout of your power needs before anyone breaks ground. We perform many residential pool installations each year. There, we often install a sub-panel specifically for the pool, completing the bonding of the pool for the pool installers.

    Next, we’ll hook up all the necessary pumps, heaters, and low-voltage lighting transformers. In short, when we leave your property, you’ll have everything you need to enjoy your new backyard oasis. As the area’s expert pool electricians, we’ve helped hundreds of homeowners across our region with this process and can’t wait to help you with yours as well. Our twenty plus years of experience before Rod and Tina founded Yoder Electric created a rock-solid foundation for where our company is today and will be in the years to come. Simply put, you won’t find a more qualified pool electrician in Columbus than Yoder Electric.

    Why You Need a Pool Electrician

    Looking deeper, there are additional reasons why you should hire a pool electrician. Whether you are adding an in-ground or above-ground pool to your property, working with a pool electrician will ensure the job is handled properly from Day One. Here are our top five reasons why you need a pool electrician. First and foremost, safety. As you’re probably well aware, water and electricity do not mix. Pool electrical systems need to be installed in a way that they stay dry while providing the power you need. This can also include the placement of your GFCI power outlets so that they stay moisture-free.Second, efficiency. A licensed pool electrician will ensure that your power distribution systems can handle the workload. This will, in turn, allow your pool filters, lights, and more to operate at peak efficiency. Third, ongoing cost savings. Have you ever heard someone say “That cost me more in the long run? I should have hired a professional.” In the pool industry, this statement is 100% accurate and spot on. By having things done right from the beginning, you’ll save significant replacement costs down the road.Fourth, sub-panel wiring.

    Can your current electrician panel handle the power demands you’re adding to it with a new pool? Remember, there’s more to having a pool than just adding chlorine. You’ll need to ensure that the filter runs consistently and that deck lighting provides security. Depending on the condition of your current electrician panel, you will most likely need to add a sub-panel that’s dedicated to your pool’s power demands.

    Finally, bonding. This is a type of grounding that adheres to higher safety standards.

    Pool Electrical Services FAQs

    Do in-ground pools need a pool electrician?

    First, what is a backup generator? At its most basic level, it’s a power source. A backup generator can be either permanent or portable. For the former, it would be considered a standby unit or a whole-house generator. For the latter, it’s what most people think of when they say they want a backup power source. In both cases, it serves to provide key appliances in your home with power in the event of an outage. A portable backup generator utilizes either diesel or gasoline, depending on the power demands of your specific unit. However, this also requires the homeowner to have an ample fuel supply on the property, such as a couple of gas cans in a detached storage shed. A typical setup for a backup generator is to power a refrigerator, a handful of lights, and maybe another appliance. It could also power your furnace during the colder winter months, using the power from the backup generator to keep your blower moving while still heating your home via natural gas. Another possible use case is for homes that are prone to flooding. A backup generator can keep your sump pump running. In fact, one particular homeowner wanted a backup generator specifically (and only) for their sump pump to protect their basement appliances.

    Do in-ground pools need a pool electrician?

    Likewise, do in-ground pools need a pool electrician? Once again, we say yes. Above-ground pools aren’t always a permanent fixture in your home’s landscaping. Sometimes, a homeowner may choose to move an above-ground pool to a new location. While not an easy job, it is possible. This is not the case with in-ground pools. Because these are made of materials such as concrete and fiberglass, they stay in place until the time comes to abandon the pool. They’re as much a part of your property as a garage or in-law suite. And when it comes time to add those types of features to your property, you would rely on a professional electrician for assistance. That’s why an in-ground pool electrician is so vitally important. From trenching and backfilling to ensuring your sub panels can handle the new load and more, you should only trust a professional and licensed pool electrician to install your power setup for all types of in-ground pools.

    What tasks can a pool electrician perform?

    At the risk of repeating the section we just covered, we need to address the tasks that a pool electrician can perform for you. Of course, there’s safety and compliance. A pool electrician will understand how to provide power to your pool while keeping your family safe at all times. They’ll also install sub panels so that your power needs are fully met. Beyond that, a pool electrician will typically be able to trench and backfill buried power lines. Safely running them from your pool to your home is of the utmost importance during the installation process. After the installation is completed, a pool electrician can also perform maintenance tasks. This can include an annual inspection as a part of a residential service contract and the repair of any components as needed. In addition, a pool electrician can evaluate whether your home will need additional wiring or a second sub-panel if you’re considering adding a hot tub or spa down the road.

    Can a handy homeowner DIY their pool wiring?

    We’ve briefly addressed this above, but the answer to this FAQ can be answered like this. Can you give yourself a haircut? Possibly. Should you? Probably not.Residential electrical projects might seem simple on the surface, but in reality, there is quite a bit that goes into them. Specifically, with pools, there are safety concerns beyond making sure you’re connecting the right wire to the right spot. After all, there’s the entire issue of water to consider. Keeping your pool-related electrical components clear from any splashing is vitally important to your family’s safety. In addition, many large-scale electrical projects require both permits and inspections from your local officials, signing off on the work. If you skip this step, it may be more difficult to sell your home in the future if you were ever to choose to do so.So a handy homeowner can DIY their pool wiring. However, it’s far safer if they turn to the pool electrician professionals at Yoder Electric.

    Can a pool electrician trench and backfill lines?

    Likewise, there are certain things a pool electrician can and should do. It’s our stance that a licensed pool electrician should have the skills and know-how to trench and backfill power lines from your pool and deck to your home. However, not all firms are equipped with this service. That can be the difference between working with a client to help them finish the project and having to outsource some pieces to third parties. Here at Yoder Electric, we have a mini excavator for larger projects and a trencher for smaller ones. It’s this full-service capability that has helped us build a strong reputation and loyal client base across the region. With our team, there is no outsourcing. We trench and backfill as necessary, using the tools we’ve invested in to properly bury your power lines, keeping those connections safe from the elements as well as the pool itself.

    What components of your pool need the assistance of an electrician?

    We should start the answer to this question by first addressing the electrical requirements of a pool. Your typical above-ground pool will most likely use a 120V system plugged into a GFCI certified outlet. That power line is then run to your home where one of our team members will bond it to either your electrical panel or a sub-panel, possibly even in your garage. In-ground pool requirements are sometimes more power-focused, so it’s best to work with us from the beginning so that we can help you. In any case, both above-ground and in-ground pool pumps and filters will require the assistance of an electrician. Briefly, the cost of pool electrical wiring can vary based on things like distance from the panel and the pool’s power demands. It can also vary depending on what else you’ll be installing around the pool. Once again, to help with planning from the get-go, we recommend contacting our team early on so that we can assist you with your electrical needs the right way.
