I talked with the pool management company today about our underwater pool lights. He said they are connected to a GFCI breaker, and, while they do trip frequently, they are never tested.
How often should a GFCI breaker be tested? The pool is about 20 years old. Would you let your kids swim in this pool? Or would you just tell them to never touch the metal railings?

:eek: What?

There are things that will trip GFCIs that have nothing to do with a fault, lightning storms and radio transmitters, for example.

But if the only GFCI that's tripping is this pool light, that's a great indicator that there may be a wiring problem with that circuit and it needs to be checked immediately.
