GFCI stands for ground fault circuit interrupter and is used to help prevent electrocution. If a GFCI senses a leakage current it will trip and shut off the electrical components of your pool. All pools and hot tubs should have their equipment installed with GFCI protection. You can learn more about what a GFCI outlet is an how it works over on our blog.
An emergency shut-off button is an important safety tool to have when you own a pool. This piece of equipment will shut off the power to your pool pump in the event that a person becomes trapped. An alert can also be utilized with an emergency shut-off button to ensure that anyone in the area is aware of the emergency situation.
