Hi everyone.... I'm new here. We just had a AGP put in. Let me start off by saying that I don't know too much about electric. My husbands knows more, but we are having an electrician do the electrical for us. But I wanted to make sure that the wire size he is using is correct. I used a measuring wheel and the distance will be about 146 feet, give or take a few feet. He is planning on using a 20 amp breaker. And running 12 guage wire. The pump is 1.5 hp. Says on the pump it 11 amps. I just read if the wire isn't the right size, you'll burn up the pump early. I would hope he knows what he is doing, but thought I would double check.
I guess he has to put in a seperate box for a convenience outlet also. He has it located it near the pump, 10 feet out from the pool. From your experiences is there a better place for it, or is that good. I'm not even sure what we will ever use it for, but he says it has to be there. It just seems to be floating in the middle of the yard now Thanks for any help
