    Pentair EasyTouch - GFCI outlet

    Hello,

    I noticed that on the EasyTouch box ( metal) there is a GFCI knockout (see attached extract from installation manual). However, I am not sure what box to use on it because of the bolt pattern. Is this a Pentair part or a part that you can only find at pool stores. Home Depot carries only boxes that install on stucco...

    It would help to see some pictures as well

    Thanks,

    Lee

    Welcome to TFP!

    I'm no expert but, looking at the picture it looks like an actual GFCI outlet mounts to the knockout. Not an added box. It has the same screw pattern as the outlet itself. Just a thought.

    That's how it looks to me as well.

    Mark & John are correct. All you need is a gfci receptacle and a weather proof cover. It'll screw right to the side of the enclosure.

    Everybody is correct. Just screw in the plug and wire up the outlet to one of the breakers.

    Yup. Standard 'Decora' layout. A GFCI will mount directly to it. You'll need an "in use" outdoor cover as well.

    Thanks everyone!

    I assumed you'd need an actual box to hold the outlet because of the knockouts ( receptacle and screw wholes). I guess I will have to use metal screws to attach the outlet to the metal body. Please confirm.

    Thanks again.

    The receptacle and cover will come with the screws you need to mount them.

    Make sure to buy some nuts to mount the outlets. The hole in the pentair isnt threaded.

    Re: Pentair EasyTouch - GFCI outlet

    Racket was correct: additional mounting screws were needed. However, I ended up using self threading metal screws . Actually 2 screws were enough to hold the outlet and the protective cover!

    Thanks everyone for taking the time to respond!
