    Electrical wiring to relay for extra outlet

    I am installing an outlet in my Pentair EasyTouch box. I already have a GFCI protected plug on the outside and I want to use that to make a downstream plug inside the box that is connected to a relay. At the moment, there is a light attached to the GFCI.


    Would this his setup be to code or have any issues? I plan on installing a stenner pump plugged into it, poking the cord down thru one of the holes in the box and setting up the pump outside. All of my pool equipment is outside.


    Ive attached an image of my current setup and another one of my proposed setup. The goal is to piggy back off the current plug to make sure it is also protected- particularly because the pump will be outside. For the record, I did run this by the helpful folks in the stenner forum- but this is really more of an electrical issue and would love a second set of eyes.

    Thanks in advance... I accept any tips!

    With all that open breaker space why not just install a 15A or 20A GFCI breaker and keep it simple?

    Someone will be able to verify your proposed downstream wiring though.

    Not a terrible idea but preference is to go w what I have. Electrical isn't my strong suit.

    ok. You're right. Time to add a breaker! That is indeed the cleanest route. Not sure if I'll do a GFCI outlet or GFCI breaker. But definitely adding a breaker
