    Easytouch GFCI Pool Light Relay

    Long time lurker, first time poster.

    I am installing an Easytouch 8.

    I have a single pool light.

    I have a GFCI circuit breaker in the Easytouch exclusively for the pool light.

    I want the Easytouch to control the pool light.

    Do I wire both the hot and neutral from the GFCI circuit breaker to the relay or just the hot?

    Typically you do not switch the neutral, ever, even with a relay.

    The reason I am asking is because of this post from wayback, answer #19. I just want to make sure I understand this answer.

    Thanks, great forum, great website!!!

    You wire hot from the circuit breaker to the appropriate relay, and then run hot from there to the GFI outlet. Neutral bypasses the relay, going directly from the breaker (if it is a GFCI breaker) or the neutral bar (plain breaker) to the outlet.

    I will have to go back and re-read that old post and see if something else is going on there or if it is just wrong. {{{EDIT}}}It was just wrong.{{{/EDIT}}}

    Neutral from circuit lands on gfi breaker. Pre wired Neutral from gfi to neutral bar.
