Conductor Hub electrical safety for swimming pools
As head contractor on a project it is vital to understand legal liabilities and requirements, including electrical safety. The requirement for compliant equipotential bonding became mandatory in the 2018 update to Australian Standard AS/NZS3000 (Wiring Rules). Under the revised rules, it is essential that an accessible bonding connection point is installed in a swimming pool or spa zone. This provides connection between reinforcing steel in the structure/shell, as well as other metal components in the 1.25 m ‘touch zone’ that are below ground and accessible.
An equipotential bond between metal components in a wet-area environment ensures that those metal components become the same electrical potential, therefore lessening the chance of potential electric shock.
Design and construction of a safe pool and spa zone is made easier with Conductor Hub’s all-in-one Australian made product, enabling pool builders and electricians to work together and install an accessible bonding connection point.
