Howdy folks. Today I present me semi-annual pool issue. Thank you for reading.
About a month ago, I had a Pergola by my pool removed due to rotting beams. It had light fixtures attached to it that came on with the same switch as the light in my pool. The guy found the breaker for those lights on an outdoor subpanel and turned it off, then dismantled them carefully and left just covered junction boxes. But, related or not, the next day I randomly turned on the switch and noticed my pool light was out. Pool is mostly for day use, so I figured I'd deal with it at some point later. So I just turned that same subpanel breaker off and went about my business.
Anyway, a week later we noticed a slight, occasional tingle when we brushed up against or got really close to the light. I read all about this on other threads, but I don't see how it could happen with the breaker off. Feels light slight electrolysis, I am told.
The breaker to the pool equipment (Polaris, pump, etc.) is separate and still on, but that equipment is a long way away from this and those wires don't come near the pool itself.
Got a pool guy coming out but this just doesn't make sense to me. Is there any chance that, although the pool light is on the same switch as the pergola lights, it's on a different breaker?
