Hi again all:
I've made some good progress with the relocation of my pool equipment and have a couple questions regarding the timers and wiring.
I'm guessing these timers are quite a few years old and seem to be similar to the current offerings from Intermatic. These timers have always functioned properly.
The conduit from the sub panel in my basement contains 7 wires. These wires are visible in a junction box that the two timers are attached to. (Picture 1)
Most of these 7 wires PASS THROUGH (meaning they are not cut) to a "Deck" box (approx 10 feet away) to power a Niche light, Spa Aerator, Convenience outlet and Spa light.
I believe the only two lines which utilize a GFCI breaker are for the Pool and Spa Niche light.
Two of the 7 wires branch off to feed Timer 1 (Pool Pump*). These two wires were stripped "inline", wrapped around the "Line in" posts and continued on to supply power to Timer 2 (Pool Cleaner Pump). *Timer 1 used to control a heater, which is no longer exists.
My question is that there is no ground wire present and it appears the timers may not be equipped to accommodate a ground. I can't find an exact match for either timer regarding documentation. (Can anyone identify?)
One of the wires that passes through to the Deck box is a ground wire...but as mentioned, it's uncut. Can I cut and run a leg off of it to these timers?
I've attached pics for clarification.
Thanks in advance!
