    Please Please Please Answer This For Me!!!

    I am not anything near an electrician, but I think I am getting pool shocked. I was messing around the pump basket and what seemed to me and at the time only me got shocked. I thought it was the chlorine hitting an open spot on finger so I left it alone. Then the wife went out the other day to swim and she said when she touched the ladder she felt the same thing. What can cause this or whom should I call to check it out???

    If you're feeling a shock it has to be a bonding issue. We seem to be having a rash of them this year.

    Is there a large bare wire hooked to the bonding lug on the outside of the pump motor?

    It is 100% for certain a bonding issue. In addition you have some kind of electrical issue that results in current flowing in the ground around your pool. The electrical issue may be due to a power company issue, a problem with a neighbor's electrical service or your own. Regardless of the source, you wouldn't feel it if your pool was bonded properly.

    Most often the bonding problem is a result of failure to connect the concrete deck to the bond wire, which is unfortunately a very difficult thing to correct after construction.
