About to call a couple electricians, for quotes. All I need is for a line to be run from my panel, across my basement, then an outlet installed on the outside. (Ranch house, with walk out basement) I don't plan to have the line run underground, or away from the house. The pool will be 5ft from the house, and I was going to put the pump, somewhat in between. Our code says it is ok for a pool to be that close to the house.
Anyways, my brother, who does does odd jobs on the side, knows a couple guys who do electrical. One I know, was something like an apprentice for an electrician? But he is not licensed. For an easy install like I want, do I need to make sure he is bonded and licensed? If so, can I ask why it makes a difference? (I want it done right, just making sure it needs to be done by a licensed person) Thanks.
