So, I'm in the midst of my pool install. The electrical for the pool consists of a single 3/4 HP 110v pump.
There is a shed about 10 feet from the pool.
I was thinking I would run a 30a subpanel into the shed, probably using 10 gauge wire in conduit, so I don't have to dig 2 feet down in the shale that is my dirt.
So I was thinking a 30amp GFCI breaker in the main panel.
It's almost exactly 100 foot run to where I'd like to put the subpanel. I was planning on using 10-2 UF wire in plastic conduit to the subpanel. The subpanel just needs to have a few small breakers, as I'd like an outlet in the shed and then the circuit for the pump.
I know there are some stipulations on the electrical for the pump...would these need to apply from the panel, or would they apply from the subpanel. Basically, I'm speaking of the use of THWN individually wrapped wires to the pump. as per code (NEC 680, I believe?)
Also, I understand that subpanels in other buildings require their own ground rod. This has me a little confused. I know you isolate the ground and the neutral in such a situation. So, at the main panel, I'd hook up the hot, neutral and ground as normal for a circuit. Then at the sub I'd hook the hot and the neutral up as normal, but the ground wouldn't be hooked to the panel, it'd go to a ground rod?
Anyway, any advice is appeciated. I've rewired my entire house, so I'm pretty good with electrical, but this going outside and then working with code for pools is a bit different.
