Aerobic 30 amp

I am having an aerobic system installed and have to provide a 30amp 110 circut at the tank site to power the aeriator and the sump pump. Would 12/2 work or do I need 10/2?

You need 10/2. Possibly you need 8/2 if the distance is great.

Do not PM with questions that can be asked in a forum. I will not respond.

Since there are motors involved, the wire size may be determined by 240.4(G) instead of 240.4(D) depending on how the equipment is labeled.

Does the equipment have a nameplate? What exactly is stated on such nameplate? How did you determine that you need a "30 Amp" circuit?
