I will not challange you but the 682.23B is for pool system so the irriration for watering the feilds do not use the GFCI at all unless I stated only if the local code do show up but I know in State of Wisconsin the irragation water pump do not use the GFCI at all unless you are next to the pool pump and for subersable well pump never use the GFCI at all.
If the submersable pump used for fonation water only then Oui GFCI protected.
BTW French codes are pretty simauir to this so there is no Conneries on this matter.
I am with you on agricultural irrigation where open field pumps are exempt. Post 11 is just a heads up based on previous data from a well drilling subscription I received in the last year. (National Driller) I just have not been able to refer to the particular article at the moment.

I suppose it could go either way. l let you know how the Montgomery County, North Carolina building inspectors interpretthe NEC. July 4th holiday adds another day of delay to the project. Thanks again, I appreciate all the input.
The Inspector came yesterday and approved the install with a standard breaker. His main concern was the wire type was a UF wire, not NM-B and that the motor had the # 10 equipment ground. As everything else in the circuit was rated at or above a 1 HP motor - it passed the first time. A first for me as well! Thanks to all the advice. Great chat information.
