Put the filter system on the ground where it cannot possibly fall into the pool. Also have the system run through a GFCI circuit. GFCI outlet... does that stop the flow of electricity when the filter hits the water? I was thinking more along the lines of rambunctious idiotic teenagers throwing the unit into the pool. (God knows they've thrown everything else in there...) I think next year I'll attach it to a large board, so it isn't so maneuverable. Many thanks for your reply! Your entire pool electrical service MUST be GFCI protected according to NEC requirements. The pool should absolutely NOT be used if it's not done this way. The GFCI system is to protect lives! Humm, I cannot understand how a filter the large tank can just fall into the water. Same with the pump. ????????? Firstly, the filter has no power to it 110v 220v or otherwise.

When is wire size and electrical hazard?

Wire size is the gauge (thickness of wire) hazard is almost anything not wired correctly.

When is wire size an electrical hazard?

Wire size becomes an electrical hazard when it is under rated for the amount of current (Amps or I) it has to carry.Current is the flow of electrons in a circuit. If the current is too large for the cable, the cable will be subject to heating, which is a possible fire hazard.

Instead of neutral wire earth wire connected in a will glow or not?

A circuit can be made to work with a hot and a ground. The normal and safe way is to use a neutral wire which is bonded at the electrical panel to the ground. The neutral wire is used as a return path for electricity back to your panel. If you were to use a ground wire instead of a neutral wire you are creating a potential hazard as the circuit now employs the ground as a return path for electricity. Any stray voltage caused by equipment faults will go through the grounding system and could produce a hazard to anyone as they become part of this circuit. It is not uncommon that people get an electrical shock if they touch both a live wire and a neutral wire. If you were to do that the current in the circuit would run through you. If you use an earth ground as the return path and are in contact with the hot wire and a ground you will get an electrical shock. The bottom line here is yes the light will work, the question I would have for you is "why don't you call an electrician to solve this potentially dangerous situation?".

What will be happen if you use earthing in place of neutral in any circuit?

* * * DANGER * * * DANGER * * * DANGER * * *Do not, under any circumstances, use earth ground instead of neutral in a circuit. Besides being a violation of the US National Electrical Code, and probably the applicable electrical code for any country that has an existing neutral system in place, it constitutes a hazard because the earth ground conductor is not rated to carry operational current. It is only there to carry momentary fault current so as to trip the protective device (fuse or circuit breaker) in the distribution panel. Also, placing operational current on protective earth ground can raise the voltage on that conductor, creating the potential for an electrocution hazard.
