hey everyone, so yesterday I had the Fam down and of course everyone is enjoying the pool.. at the end of the day I was in bare feet and talking and stuck my hand in the pool while standing in sand surrounding the pool... on a cut on my hand I noticed a "sting/tingle" and thought it was weird and looked at my hand, did it again and knew immediately it was voltage, not much but enough.. (everyone was already out of the pool)
So i started testing "everything"
pool water to earth 0.550 V AC and 0.300 V DC, 0.0 Amps
pool water to metal poles on pool 0.003 V AC
bonding to ground, same
earth to earth 0.102 V AC and 0.052 V DC, 0.0 Amps (5 feet between probes)
bond to earth continuity > intermittent, not high pitch like normal, almost like muddled low grumble sound
I did all the above tests with power to pump/ pad everything, then turned all breakers off at pad and same results, turned off power from main breaker in garage and same results..
hmmmmm, tested ground (from 120V ground plug)
ground to sink water 0.357 V AC and 0.168 V DC, 0.0 Amps
ground to earth outdoor socket 0.600 V AC 0.0 Amps
I have read and understand more than most on bonding and I think I can stop all voltage difference by bonding directly to earth..
My question is how much is too much, is 0.600 V AC with 0 amps to much, is it not safe..
I am contacting the power company on Wednesday but I wanted to have some knowledge behind it, is this something they are going to say is normal or nominal and not do anything?
are there any other tests I should do? Anything thing I should know?
