I just purchased a home with an in-ground pool and trying to assess the electrical.
The cleaner booster pump had a broken bonding wire (which I replaced).
I have added a Hayward SWG.
Nowhere in the system can I find any GFCI protection.
My main concern is there are several 120V outlets around the yard including some within about 8ft of the pool which as far as I can tell are not protected.
The pool panel is fed via a 60A double-pole breaker in the main electrical panel.
In the pool panel, I have a 30A DP breaker feeding the filter pump, booster pump and SWG (via mechanical timers). Separate 40A DP breaker for the heat pump. Single pole breaker for pool lights (via 12V isolating transformer). A 20A DP breaker feeding a 240V outlet inside the house (I believe the PO had a tanning bed inside) and a 20A single pole breaker feeding the yard outlets.
I NEED to protect the yard outlets with GFCI but my question is, would it be preferable to just replace the main 60A breaker with a GFCI thereby protecting the whole panel? The difference between the 20A & 60A GFCI is about $30.
