Pool Installation Ottawa FAQs

The following are some of the most important electrical code requirements for swimming pools:  

  • If utility power lines run over a pool, they must be at least 22.5 feet above the ground. 
  • The communications cable should be 10 feet above the water level. 
  • You need a GFCI-protected receptacle for the pump. The receptacle should be located 6 to 10 feet away from the walls of the pool.
  • The swimming pool should have a separate GFCI-protected convenience outlet. It should be located between 6 to 20 feet from the edge of the pool. 
  • An above-ground pool should have a 20-amp breaker and No. 12-gauge wire.

Yes. The pool pump requires a lot of power, so it requires its own circuit. 

It depends on the pool size, the motor’s service factor, and the pool equipment. Most of the pools in Ottawa homes require 1500 to 2500 watts of electricity. At Ottawa Electric, we specialize in hot tub electrical installation and pool installation in Ottawa and surrounding areas. Whether it is the swimming pool electrical installation or the ground pool wiring, you can hire an expert electrical contractor today.

Usually, the voltage of your pool pump depends on the motor’s HP rating. The smaller HPs connect to either 115V or 230V circuits, while the bigger ones go with only 230V.

Some of the most common pool equipment includes pool pumps, pool filters, heaters, cleaners, chemical feeders, and salt chlorine generators. You can also add pool lights or sound systems.
