Is this the correct way to wire this light? Hot=Black Wire (B) Neutral=White Wire (W) All green grounds will tie in together. I am fairly competent in running wires but then again I have never run wiring to a pool. Although I have been shocked a handful of times I don't wish to have my 2 or 4 year old experience this.
Both boxes GCFI and Lightswitch are exterior/wet weather grade. The wires coming out of the subpanel go to the GCFI then to the pool light switch, then to the pool light
subpanel 20 Amp dedicated breaker

(B) GCFI (W)
Black ^ on one leg
Black from pool light on other leg
Neutrals tie together
My question is I know I need to ground the GCFI and the light switch and the light together but do the also need to be grounded seperately, like to the ground in the boxes? I just want my peeps to be safe Also would it easier to just install an arc-fault breaker (AFB) instead of the GCFI or maybe add the AFB just in case?
