    Power source I need for the rectangular 18' X 9' pool

    Can anyone tell me what kind of power source I need for the rectangular 18' X 9' pool? Ordered it and is arriving Saturday, just wanted to be prepared with an electrician if the filter that comes with the pool needs more than the average outdoor outlet.
    Thx!!

    Welcome to TFP!

    You want two separate 15 amp circuits run to near where the pool will be, both with GFCI. One will be for the pump, which must be at least 5' from the pool and in many areas must be twist lock. The other for a convince outlet, which must be at least 10' from the pool.
