    Methods on measuring stray voltage around your pool

    This subject comes up from time to time, thought I'd post a link to this article. Very informative.

    http://strayvoltage.epri.com/protocols.asp

    [the pool specific section is about 1/2 way down and titled "Measuring the Voltage Between Pool (or Hot Tub) Water and Ladder Steps or Handrail"]

    That's interesting. The only drawback I see is that most people don't have a true RMS meter. It's some good reading though.

    I didn't even notice that. I had to check my pool after reading that article. Low and behold I have .3v of DC stray voltage between my water and slab. No AC voltage though.

    There is lots of good information there, but it is way too technical for the great majority of people.
