Electrical Services for Spas and Pools

Looking to add value to your home? Installing a spa or pool is a wonderful idea to add to your list. Plus, your backyard barbecues will be much more fun. The process of installing a pool or spa isn't something you can handle on your own, though. You will need a team of experienced electricians in Walterboro, SC to ensure your system is set up correctly. That way, you can enjoy your pool or spa for years to come, and it'll be in great working order when it's time to sell.

Why Do I Need an Electrical Contractor for Pool or Spa Installation?

Installing a pool or spa is a very involved job that includes more than digging out space for a pool or spa. These units are very complex and have a whole host of electrical needs, from heating units and filters to color-changing lights that wow your guests. Having a professional install these parts is vital. Otherwise, you'll be swimming in a dirty, near-freezing pool or spa.

Hiring Sievert Electrical Contractors guarantees your pool or spa will be in proper working order for years and years.

EV Charging Station Installation

Finding a reliable EV charging station when you're out and about is still a gamble in this day and age. While EV charger availability is improving, most EV owners prefer to have a charging station installed at home. But doing so is easier said than done and often requires the help of a professional electrician.

Why Do I Need an Electrical Contractor for EV Charging Station Installation?

If you're like most homeowners, you don't have the proper permit to install your own EV charging station. For that reason alone, you need to rely on a pro who has the right tools and electrical know-how to handle the job. Plus, EV chargers need much more voltage than standard electrical systems you may find in your home. That makes installing these devices much more dangerous than average appliances. Hiring Sievert Electrical Contractors to install your charging station ensures it's completed quickly, correctly, and safely.

Industrial Electric Repair


When it comes to electrical repair services, serving industrial needs is often more comprehensive and complex than those in the residential space.

Industrial electricians must deal with more complex electrical systems. These advanced systems often need different equipment and tools when repairs to industrial-grade elements are required. Unlike residential repairs, in industrial settings, electrical systems are usually custom-made for the facility and include unique parts with higher voltages than in the typical home. And while no electrical issue is good, industrial failures have massive repercussions that can often shut enterprises down when their temperature control, machinery, and automated PLCs are affected.

For those reasons alone, you need the best electric pros to perform industrial-level electric repairs. Fortunately, Sievert Electrical Contractors is here to help. Our industrial electricians have the experience and expertise to tackle the most complicated industrial electric repairs, whether you own a warehouse, medical center, or another type of industrial facility.

Walterboro residents to shut down halfway house at council meeting, despite no set plans

WALTERBORO, S.C. (WCIV) — The fight against a halfway house continues in Walterboro as residents will take their concerns to the Colleton County Council for the first time tonight.

Several Walterboro residents are worried the proposed halfway house located on Barracada Road, can bring dozens of sex offenders to the area.

However, despite a conversation on the county council’s agenda tonight, officials say Shield Ministries has not revealed plans yet.

Shield Ministries purchased the land of an old, abandoned church—speculated to be the future halfway house.

According to Colleton County Council Chair, Steve Murdaugh, no permits were filed by Shield Ministries, an action required for a residential facility to come before the council.

Despite the lack of action, residents say they want to get ahead of the issue, showing the county their concerns regardless.

“We don't expect an answer tomorrow. Really, we really don't expect an answer. We just want to present our case,” Walterboro resident Lisa Langdale, “Our plan is to give the county [our concerns], present our case and give the county every piece of ammunition we can to be able to say no to this because we just so feel like it's not the right thing for our community, and especially our neighborhood.”

Murdaugh says he does believe the proposed location is not suitable for the halfway house and could push for action to be taken tonight.

Shield Ministries responded to resident’s concerns in a statement saying, “right now, we are exploring all options with the property.”

In Shield Ministries' 2021 annual report, 70 percent of their applicants are registered as sex offenders. The company says between 40 and 50 men will live at the Walterboro location.

The proximity of the location on Barracada Road of the proposed halfway house worries residents, as it’s a quarter mile from a Jehovah’s Witness meeting location, Kingdom Hall Church and at least four schools within an eight mile radius.

The South Carolina law states sex offenders can’t live within 1000 feet of a church or a school bus stop. The proposed location is just over 1000 feet from Kingdom Hall by a hundredth of a mile, and many bus stops are in the immediate area.

“Ultimately our goal is to stop this because we don't want it in our neighborhoods. We have children, we have families. It is residential. It's not secluded, or isolated and I think that's what it was called at one point--and it's not,” Langdale said.

Sex offenders haven’t been a consistent problem for the town. Colleton County Sheriff’s Office reported statistics for sex offenses from 2020-2021 reveal sex crimes decreased nearly half, while other violent crimes increased.

Crime statistics Colleton County:

All of this and more will be discussed at the Colleton County council meeting tonight at 5:15 p.m. in Walterboro.

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Kontrolmatik Technologies, via its subsidiary Pomega Energy Storage Technologies, today announced plans to build a 3 gigawatt-hour (GWh) capacity lithium-ion battery factory in Colleton County. The company’s $279 million investment will create approximately 575 new jobs.

PRESS RELEASE - First Thursdays downtown made a huge comeback last week! To kick off fall, the merchants of downtown Walterboro brought our community together by staying open late with huge sales, new arrivals, gift cards, and many other prize drawings. The City blocked off the street and provided music by Scott Grooms. The businesses provided a taste of fall with Oktoberfest themed decorations, appetizers, and drinks. The restaurants were open for dining and mingling. It was definitely a successful first night for all.

My goal in restarting this event is to offer our community an opportunity to come together to support and enjoy our beautiful downtown.

Prior to Covid, First Thursdays were a huge success for merchants to bring extra income and interest to downtown. My niece Christan Spires, former Tourism Director, and I enjoyed coming up with new ideas to make it bigger and more successful each month. There was always something new and exciting happening. Live music, karaoke, and shagging were just a few. It was very disheartening to see it shut down due to COVID.

However, two years later it has been a great pleasure to be able to reintroduce the event with my daughter (and business partner at Colleton Day Spa), Lauren Sutherland, along with all the support of the other downtown merchants.

The merchants need the support of our community and tourists. The beautification efforts and improvements made to the downtown area have made the event even better. Mayor Bill Young has been one of our biggest supporters and has attended every event. He’s always willing to listen and do what he and the City can to help us grow.

The Chamber of Commerce has also participated and expressed their interest in helping us expand. Being new to our area it’s nice to see everyone coming together to show their support.

Our goal is for the event to continue to expand down the entire length of Washington Street. We want everyone to remember that downtown is the place to be every First Thursday. If we can attract our community and tourists, we can also attract new businesses-which will help us grow.

Next month we are planning a “Friendsgiving” themed First Thursday on November 3rd from 5:30-8:00. Each business is asked to participate, and the entire community is welcome!

Please be on the lookout for our new Downtown Facebook page and details about the event coming soon.

Walterboro’s hometown Sears store thanks community for years of support

A business that has been a fixture in the lives of many Walterboro families is saying farewell after many years of service to the community. Mrs. Teresa Busbee announced with great sadness last month that the Sears Hometown Store, located at 377 Bells Highway, would be closing its doors for good in October.

From the early days as a Sears catalog store to its time as a franchise, the iconic business has been a household name in Walterboro. Some readers may fondly remember circling toys and trinkets in the yearly Christmas catalog. Others may look back and reminisce over the fact that their first major appliance purchases were made in one of the storefronts. No matter what the memories may look like, one thing is certain-the business was known for turning first time buyers into loyal customers.

Teresa and her staff’s commitment to building sincere relationships with and providing excellent service for Sears’ customers no doubt played a large part in building that loyalty. She noted that infusing her faith into the business created a welcoming atmosphere for all who entered the doors.

“I used it as a ministry for God,” Teresa said. “I always had a Bible in there. I had customers that would come in and read the Bible with me, and they would tell me they couldn’t go just anywhere and do that. We just always put God first.”

Going the extra mile to show their customers that they were appreciated led to many becoming like family to Teresa and the other employees.

“Every customer that came through there became a friend, but then that friend became a family member,” she stated with a smile in her voice. “I had very few disgruntled customers. I can say this-90% of the customers that came in disgruntled left feeling much better. Many even came back later to apologize for their behavior.”

Walterboro’s Sears Hometown Store didn’t just make a mark on its customers. The individuals that worked for Teresa through the years also left with more knowledge, skills, and confidence to move on to higher positions than they had when they were hired.

“I always told everybody to use this as a stepping stone to make your life better,” she said. “Get the experience, and if something comes about then go for it if that’s what you want to do.”

Although Teresa firmly believes that God doesn’t close one door without opening another that is even better, she’s saddened to know that there will be another empty storefront in town. She also recognizes that many of her former customers will miss the opportunity to speak with someone face to face in regards to payments (which can be paid online or mailed going forward), purchases, and other issues. However, Teresa was quick to mention that she doesn’t want her customers to feel that the business closing is not due to lack of support.

“I want people to know that this is not happening because the community did not support us,” she said emphatically. “It was nothing to do with the community or ownership. It was strictly a corporate decision made by Sears. We got caught up in this wave of closures, and there’s another coming. There are no more Sears stores in South Carolina.”

For many, myself and Teresa included, seeing Sears stores drift away feels like the end of an era-a door shutting softly on a time when personal service, friends, and family, was everything.

Teresa and the staff of Sears Hometown Store wish to extend many thanks to the people of Walterboro and beyond for their many years of continued support. The store’s final day will be Friday or Saturday for anyone that wishes to stop by one last time.
