Electrical safety around pools
 
Stay away from low-hanging power lines, downed lines and damaged poles! Report problems to CenterPoint Energy: 713-207-2222.
 
When cleaning pools, watch out for power lines. Keep at least 10 feet between yourself (including any object you may be holding, such as a pool skimmer) and power lines.
 
Follow all National Electrical Code (NEC) and National Electrical Safety Code (NESC) requirements when installing a pool. Have your electrician or contractor check for NEC and NESC compliance. Ignoring local safety codes and standards regarding overhead and underground power lines near swimming pools can result in serious injury or death.
