GUIDE FOR WATER VOLTAGE SAFETY TEST
Due to the unseen but highly dangerous aspects of water/electricity hazards, Medina County
offers this test as a no fee service
1. Tests can be requested for any jurisdiction served by the County Building Department.
Tests will not be performed in the cities of Brunswick and Medina.
2. Tests will be performed Monday thru Friday from 8:30am to 3:30pm. Specific times
cannot be guaranteed.
3. The following bodies of water can be tested: concrete, gunite and vinyl lined pools, salt
water pools, water around docks and ponds when fountains or water features are
installed.
4. Fiberglass pools and hot tubs cannot be tested because of the insulating properties of
fiberglass.
5. Only the property owner may request a test, homeowner associations may request a test
for ponds located on association owned land.
6. If electricity is detected in the water, an order to disconnect power will be issued until
such time that a licensed electrician can perform repairs to remove the hazard.
7. No guarantee is implied with the test, the test can only verify if a hazard is present at the
time of testing.
