Good news, we went in and paid for our 27' AGP this weekend so it shouldn't be long now. The pool and equipment is in, just waiting for the installer now. However, the more I read here at TFP, I want to tell him to stay home and put it up myself....
Anyway, my question now is this... As far as the electrical hookups go, we will be trenching out to where the pool is gonna be and putting in a 4X4 i guess to put a power box on for the power. I have heard that it's a lil cheaper to run the pump (1.5hp) 220 instead of 110, so that's wht we'll do. I also want to have extra power out there in order to add outlets for lights, radio, or whatever. We were told by one pool guy that there is a power box with a timer built in that would allow a timer for the pump stuff and give extra breakers for adding outlets and stuff. Can someone give me some insight on this stuff and if possible show me pics, or at least direct me to somewhere I can look at them. The one guy said HD sells the box, but I don't even know what I'm looking for.
BTW, while on the topic of eletrical, I spoke to an electrician today about doing some other small jobs like a flood light n the back yard, and a couple of ceiling fans on the patio. He told me that it's something I can do myself if I have any knowledge of wiring at all. I do have a little knowledge of wire nuts and such, so do you guys have any info or advice on doing those?? According to his quote, it will save me about $500 to do it myself.
