So I'm new here, and plan to stay a while, so hi all!
My wife and I just built a new pool, and we are doing the landscaping. I just had an electrician come in and add an outlet to my new sub panel and he said the pool electrician wired us wrong. The pool electrician used a 20 amp breaker at the main panel to feed my sub panel with a 12 guage wire to two 20 amp breakers on the sub panel. One of the 20 amp breakers runs the pump and heater, and the other runs the lights and a GFI outlet. Is the electrician I hired right in saying that the main panel should have been installed with a 30 amp breaker, which needs a 10 guage wire?
Any thoughts and expertise would be appreciated, and Im glad I found this forum, it looks so very helpful.
