PE Offers Safety Swim Pool Tips Planning to put in a swimming pool? If so, make sure there is no electric company equipment nearby. Water and electricity make a very dangerous com- bination. That's the word from Gerald Hoak, safety administrator for the Potomac Edison Company. According to Hoak, should pool equipment such as a skimmer touch an electric line, serious injury or death could occur. Hoak further warns that during storms, power lines can be knocked down. "If the line happens to be over someone's swimming pool, a lethal situation can result," Hoak reports. In addition to being I dangerous, pools and their equipment located near elec- trical facilities may he illegal in some communities and are certainly against all electrical safety codes. Hoak urged anyone who is planning to put in a pool -- either above or below ground -- to call the electric company. "We'll be happy to tell you the local regulations on pool installations and give you our recom- mendations, In some instances," Hoak says, "it maY be necessary that electric company facilities be moved in the interest of safety." Hoak advised those who already have pools that are under electric lines or near equipment such as transformers or poles to call the electric company for a free safety in- spection.
