Fountains: History and Interpretations of Article 680 – Swimming Pools, Fountains, and Similar Installations

First a little history of the National Electrical Code (NEC) dealing with the title of Article 680 and the addition of Part E. Fountains. The title of Article 680 in the 1962 NEC was "Swimming Pools” and remained that until the 1971 NEC when the title was changed to "Swimming and Wading Pools.” Then in the 1975 NEC the title was changed to "Swimming Pools, Fountains and Similar Installations.” Fountains were added to Article 680 as Part D. In the 1981 NEC Article 680, Part D was changed to Part E of Article 680, with the section numbers being changed from Section 680-40’s to 680-50’s.
