    Shock from Spa
    Every time we get out of our salt water pool and touch the water in the Spa we get a mild shock. We have had the electrics checked and they are all okay. Please help if you can.

    Is the spa protected by a GFCI breaker? If you're getting shocked, it should be tripping the GFCI.

    Also, the ground is probably bad. There's always some leakage to ground in electrical devices, especially motors, but the electrical parts should be completely insulated from the inside walls of the spa. Is it an older unit?
