Recently, my pool light had a leak, I thought it shorted out the housing but when I went to replace the housing I discovered that the old one still works, the issue is with electrical. I'm hoping that the short didn't break the circuit in the middle of the conduit.
From outlet box where the pool light was tied to, there are the following cables and respectively this is what I believe they're for and I'll name them this way...
R1 -red - Pool light switch
B1 - black - Deck power outlet switch
W1 - white - common
G1 -green - ground
On the breaker box side there's similar color wires coming out and we'll call it R2, B2, W2 but the ground wire coming out of the breaker is bare copper, I'm not sure if the installer stripped the wire for this.
Here's what I observed when I tested with a Multimeter
B1 + Hot on the breaker = 120v
W1 + Hot on the breaker = 120v
B1 + Hot on breaker = 120v
In test #3 when I disconnected the CFGI breaker completely I'm still getting a 120v reading. I'm not getting why there are 2 separate hot wires a black and white coming from 2 different locations. I don't have any other outlet outside that area for it to come from. It goes from the mains to the pool equipment and all the breakers are there.
