New Subpanel Almost works


IMO that Allexperts.com site is FULL of mistakes and erroneous advice.

You certainly CAN come right from the main panel for this stuff.

Be aware, there are MANY important codes and rules with regard to pools. One of the main things is for motors and equipment, NO UF cable. You MUST have individual conductors in conduit using an insulated ground. NO, the ground in UF cable is NOT "insulated".

PLEASE, if you intent to do this all yourself, PLEASE have a pro come in and check it out when you are done.

You know, the best way might to consult an electrician from the beginning rather than the end. Prevent the mistakes before they happen. Pay an electrician for an hour or so of his time and let him show you the best code compliant way to do it. I know I wouldn't mind showing a diyer how to do a job. I'd be quite proud actually, that a homeowner is willing to get an electrician there first to make sure the job is done right instead of just "winging it" and then hoping it passes. That's if it's even inspected you know....

That would have been the ticket. Then he could have just run the wire where it need to go and have the sparky back to make all conections and verify its good to go.
