Dedicated 220 line or a new pannel?


I'll be hooking up a Pool Heatpump that requires a 220v 90 amp dedicated line. There is already a 120 line burried going out to the pool for the water pump, and a couple of lights. Should I just run the Dedicated line, or should I run wire for a whole new pannel. It seams like it would only be 1 more wire to buy and give me alot more flexability in the future. The problem is, there isn't really a good weather tight location for a pannel. Is there such a thing as an outdoor pannel?

Yes. Look for panels rated 3r.

I hope you have completed a load calculation to ensure the panel can handle the extra load.
