It doesn't exist as stated, you use a twist lock receptacle and provide gfci protection via gfci breaker or faceless gfci.

I know what a GFCI breaker is but if the pool pump has a "normal" 3 prong plug(hot-neutral-groun), is a twist lock outlet made for that?

You would replace the 'normal' 3 prong plug with a twist lock style cord cap.



You are only allowed a 3' cord by the way, so make sure your pool filter pump is not installed right next to the pool like most installations I see.

That would involve removing the "normal" 3 prong plug and cord and replacing with what you have pictured. You would think the pump moter would come with that plug/cord already attached.

What type of pool do you have? Also, how long is the cord already installed?
What you might have is a temperory cord pre installed, I have seen those before and they come with a warning label.

I got gonged for the first time this past summer for no expansion joint on sched 40 PVC coming out of an LB going to earth. 352.44 I believe it is. Same inspector never mentioned it before on any of my previous jobs of the same type...
