What are the implications of not using a GFCI circuit with a robotic cleaner?
I was planning to use the exterior outlet designated for my old polaris 380 booster pump, now retired, for my new polaris P9550 robot. I am unsure if the outlet is GFCI protected (there is no button on it). I am going to call an electrician to replace it, can I safely use the robot until that is complete? The instructions clearly state that nobody should ever be in the pool with the robot, so what is the danger?
I have another GFCI exterior outlet that I can use, but it is not optimally placed for this purpose.
