What can you do to avert a hazard with an above ground pool and an attached electrical 240v pool filter system if the filter falls into the water?

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.

The phrase "electrical shock hazard" means that there is a risk of electrical shock.

ELECTRICAL HAZARD - Boots with Electrical Hazard Protection meet ANSI Z41 PT99 standards to provide protection from open circuits. The soles of Electrical Hazard Safety Shoes provide a safety barrier to protect employees from open electrical currents up to 600 volts. Electrical Hazard shoes are often needed in maintenance, welding and engineering positions, where the chance of exposure to electrical currents is high.

If it is defined as a hazard, whether by stakes or local rules, you can not ground your club in a hazard.

Yes, you are allowed to pull these out of the ground. But you can not pull OB stakes out of the ground.

Protection from shock hazard.

This is earth ground. It is to reduce shock hazard from a device that has a metal cover that could become HOT if there were an internal wiring problem that occurred.

we believe that when in any hazard you are not allowed to groound your club and if you want to play the ball out of a hazard you are not allowed to touch any of the grass that grows in the hazard on your backswing

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

User Avatar

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.

it is the effect of ground shaking buildings can be damaged by the shading it self or by the ground beneath them

It's built into the hazard light switch. The hazard light button will slide out, with the relay (small box) attached.

This is probably caused by leaving your Hazard Lights on, but may also be an electrical short. Have it checked by an automotive electrical technician if you have tried to turn off the Hazard Lights switch and they still stay on

Electrical shock is a safety hazard because:the electric current can cause your heart to stopthe electric current can cause severe burnsthe shock can throw you across a room or cause you to fall from a ladder or other height.

yes, you can ground the club before you tee off the only time you can not ground your club is if you are in a bunker or hazard.

Fine, flour dust in the air inside a corn mill is classed as a flammable hazard, as an electrical spark could ignite the flour and start a fire. Therefore, a flammable hazard is anything likely to burst into flame.

There may be a problem with your electrical wiring that is preventing your hazard lights from turning off. You should take your car to a Toyota mechanic.

because its a hazard and in the rule book section 13-4, it says you cant touch the hazard with your club prior to hitting the ball.

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?".

* * * 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.

Yes. There is the hazard of producing an unhealthy, contaminated product. There is a hazard of high heat, electrical systems in the plant, and guarding of machinery to protect workers. There is also a fire and explosion hazard from airborne combustible dusts in the plant.
