110v circuit diagram
 
anyone know of any website that would show me how to install a 15amp breaker, 110v. i need some visuals. it is unsafe to wire a neutral to the ground and i did it and i have power to the outlet and nothing blew up or killed me. advice from professionals said to just run a new 110v from the main panel which i have decided to do. what baffles me is the part that i put the neutral where the ground bar is located in a slot next to it or is there a separate neutral bar? or is there a separate place for the neutral because it tells me to put them on the same bar. dont totally understand how my jumping the neutral and the ground is dangerous, nothings gone wrong but i'd rather be safe. thanks for any help on the diagram.

Your last thread was closed since you wanted to insist on wiring it dangerously
Now you tell us you just went ahead & did it
Are you asking for this thread to be closed ?
Disconnect your jumper to ground before you kill someone

ya ur rite i did run a 110 and jumped the wire and it worked, im not dead . i listened to you and disconnected it. now im trying to run a 110 from the panel to be more safe and like i said, now that im at the panel its tellin me to connect the neutral to the ground bar. do u see how i could become confused by doing that, seems just as stupid as doing the 220v jump to 110v by jumping the neutral/ground. my neihbor just donated some romex so i decided to go with your route. so is it safe to put the neutral to the ground bar?

Hold on. I read this as he is saying he ran a new circuit to the panel.
If so then you MUST put the neutral on the neutral bar.

Please stop saying "it works and nothing blew up". Many problems will not show up until the worst time and under certain conditions. I know your situation involves a pool which is why everyone was so adamant about doing this right. It was simply amazing that all you cared about was making it work considering this.

I hope you are sincere about running a line to the panel.
