If it were me I would add the heavy loads to the main panel and the more lightly loaded circuits to the subpanels. A little more trouble, but potentially less tripping from overloads.

Scuba Dave:
Do you have any pictures of your finished pool area? Particularly interested in the seating area / bar. I followed your monstrous thread that you link to in your sig but don't have time to wade through the 150 pages.

There was a leather couch in the "seating area" and it looked like you were building a bar. Do you have finished pics of that?

My pool is unfinished
I'm extending the cabana roof out to the bar & wrapping the roof across the front of the bar
Also building a pergola to raise the solar heat off the pool deck
And another pergola over the picnic table
The leather couch (plether maybe) was used out there for a few years
It was very old at that time & finally went to the dump
We have a new old loveseat out there now...that may last another year or so

I'll have to look thru & find pics or take new ones
This years tasks
Solar heat for the hot tub
New patio area & screenhouse w/misting setup
Texture & paint the cabana
Redo inside, move fridge & install cabinets & counters

Sounds like you'll have a nice set up. I want to do more of an open cabana with a set of wicker furniture and a hammock. But I'm always looking for ideas! Thanks for sharing.
