wiring pool heat pump in Ontario

2678 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  bob22

I'll be getting this work inspected so I need to do it right. I have the simplified code book but there's no reference to a pool heat pump. The unit I have requires 240V on a min 50A breaker.
1. I have about 25ft to the unit to run so I'm assuming 6awg is ok. It needs to run outside and I can't trench it so it will be inside a conduit.
2. Any unique requirement in regards to the conduit?
3. Another assumption I'm making is that it needs a disconnect switch next to the unit similar to an AC?
4. Does the breaker need to be a GFCI breaker?

Appreciate any advice, confirmations or corrections.

How are you running cable to the unit without either trenching it or putting it in conduit?
You likely need some bonding between the heat pump and the rest of the pool bonding; a pro will likely know.
