    lol yea i hear that, ive put the handlebars underwater for about 3 seconds on my 4 wheeler, found out it floated, not gunna try that again, battery was well underwater kinda funny i know i know it is a 4 wheeler, but it still has an alternator, and a 12 volt battery, and an ignitoin, and the battery didnt short, even when i was useing my winch to pull me out of a watery mud hole, didnt short, just got strained alittle bit because i was pushing alot of mud as i was winching myself out /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif , no the battery shouldnt short out, it isnt like if you are in the shower or in a bath and you throw\drop a toaster or a dremal tool, you will short out stuff like the radio or the blower motor, and anything else like that, but the battery itself shouldnt short. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Last I recall DC has a tough time traveling through liquids without electrolytes. AKA, it likes to travel through you, and not so much through your pool.
