Common Pool Electrical Issues in NH: Troubleshooting and Solutions


Owning a pool is a great responsibility – especially when it comes to electrical maintenance. Faulty wiring or equipment can lead to safety hazards, damage, and costly repairs. As pool electricians in NH, we want to help pool owners identify and resolve the most common electrical issues.

Keeping Your Pool Powered Up

Electrical problems are frustrating and often tricky to diagnose on your own. Here are some of the most common culprits in NH pools:

Tripped Breakers Or Blown Fuses From Equipment Overloads

Reset the breaker. If it trips again, turn off all equipment and call a professional. Check for any damaged or frayed wires and have them repaired immediately.

Pump Or Motor Malfunctions

This can be caused by various issues, such as water or debris clogging the impeller or a faulty capacitor. Clean out any obstructions and replace any damaged parts.

Burnt-out Pool Lights Or Underwater Lights

Check the bulbs and connections to see if your lights are flickering or not working. Replace any damaged bulbs and tighten any loose connections.

Faulty Heaters Or Heat Pumps

If your pool water is not heating up, check for any error codes on the unit. If there are none, try resetting the unit. 

Malfunctioning Control Panels Or Automation

If your pool equipment is not responding to the control panel, check for any error codes and try resetting the system. It may be a faulty control panel or wiring issue if that does not work.

Damaged Cords And Wiring

Always check for any frayed or damaged cords and wiring. These can be a safety hazard and should be repaired immediately.

Careful inspection and testing can help pinpoint the root cause. If you’re unsure, contact a professional electrician service to ensure safe repairs.

DIY Troubleshooting Tips

While we recommend calling a pool electrician for repairs, you can perform some basic checks as mentioned above:

  • Reset tripped breakers and replace blown fuses.
  • Clear debris jamming pumps and motors.
  • Check light fixtures for broken bulbs or loose wiring.
  • Inspect heaters and automation controls for damage.
  • Test cords and wiring for fraying or exposed copper.

Don’t take risks by getting in the water with live electricity. When in doubt, call the experts!

I had Spark upgrade my 100 amp service to a 200 amp service. They were very reasonable, prompt and friendly. Since then I had them install a water heater and my pool also. The installers name was Keith on all three installs he was professional and I highly recommend him! I will definitely use Spark Electrical again.

Excellent Service!!!!! I couldn't be happier with the service Spark Electrician Services provided! I tried installing a ceiling fan on my own (bad idea) so I needed an electrician. The 2 men that came to complete the job were professional and courteous and completed the work in an hour. They wore booties in the house which I appreciated as well. I will definitely be hiring Spark Electrician Services again in the very near future! They are also extremely reasonably priced compared to other electricians in the area!

The spark office was great to work with. I had several scheduling changes that had to be addressed. They were on it from the first. Keith was on site did the evaluation and then was back to do the installation. He was prompt courteous focused and professional. He did a thorough job and explained everything.
