    Pool Return/Supply Test Pressure

    Hello All, I have a 16'x32' inground pool that's basically a swamp. I'm slowly working to having it hopefully ready to be used, basically running new wiring to it, I'm going to drain it and shovel out what I assume is a nasty amount of leaves from years of being uncovered before having someone...

    Pool Pump Wiring

    I did talk to one about when I ran my 100 amp panel to my garage, that was also a 100' run from my main panel. He had said #2 SER aluminum for 100 amps, #4 SER for 70 amps, and #6 SER for 50 Amps. Is there any problem with running aluminum? I could do #2 Aluminum which I believe is also less...

    I'll go with the 60A amp then, I got the trench dug up, with added wire on both ends it's going to be about a 100' run. Is there a chart or calculation to follow to determine the wire size for that?

    Pool Pump Wiring

    I've been reassessing my pool area and thinking I might be better off building an enclosure for the pump and equipment, which I don't currently have. Since I'm probably going to do this, I'm thinking what you guys mentioned about running a small subpanel up there might just be a better option...

    Another quick question, where would one purchase THWN wire? Can't seem to find it at Home Depot, is that electrical supplier specific?

    Alright, I will run 3 Neutrals, 3 Grounds, and 5 Hots, All 12 Gauge. Looks like 3/4" Conduit would be enough based on the chart you supplied but I will probably go bigger just to make things easier and just in case for the future. Thanks again for all your help!

    Pool Pump Wiring

    Yeah I was planning on running another circuit up with these 2 for an outlet and possibly lighting. There'd be 3 circuits going to the pool area, 1 for the pump, 1 for SWG, and 1 for outlet/lighting. If I don't use the SWG then lighting will be separate. It's not for in pool lighting, just...

    I'll just run another hot, neutral, and ground, 12 guage for a 110V circuit as well just in case. That should cover a SWG if I decide to add one one the future. Thanks so much for all the info, it was a huge help.

    Would I be able to run a SWG off of this same circuit in the future if I decide to go that route instead of just an inline chlorine feeder? Or does a SWG need it's own circuit breaker?

    Pool Pump Wiring

    Probably going to just need 2, one at each end where the conduit comes back up out of the ground. Other than that I sould be able to make large radius curves I think, shouldn't exceed 4 though. So for the pump I need 4 wires of THWN, I feel like I'll probably go with a 220V so this is the best...

    Pool Pump Wiring

    The attached files are what's there currently. There is no motor for the pump, last homeowner threw it out, I'm pretty starting from scratch here. I'm planning on having someone replace the liner next spring so I'm trying to work on having making sure everything else will be running between...

    Pool Pump Wiring

    That's what I am trying to figure out now. I'd rather not have to put an another subpanel up by the pool. As of right now I would look at it as by it. There was a wire and ground wire run to it and I believe there is a ground rod by the original pump. The original pump is old and being replaced...

    Pool Pump Wiring

    The 100Amp panel is in my garage, it is only for the garage currently but I wanted to feed the pool pump from it on it's own breaker. I have considered possibly adding a SWG in the future but I'm not sure if it's something I want or not really. I haven't thought of automation too much...

    Pool Pump Wiring

    I meant it as a reply Jim, unfortunately I'm new to forums and missed the whole reply button thing. I am running a pvc conduit underground from my garage to my pool pump. Jim had suggested using Two hots and a neutral so I could add a 120 outlet if needed and I was just stating that I was...

    Pool Pump Wiring

    I was planning on adding a separate 120V line for an outlet and possibly lighting in the pool area, not in the pool, off of a separate breaker running it through the same PVC conduit to the pool area. My pool area is just by my garage which has it's own 100Amp Sub Panel that I am planning on...

    Pool Pump Wiring

    Hello all, Just some question about what size and type of wire I need for my pool pump. I have a 16'x32' in ground pool that has been neglected by previous home owner's in the house I moved into (it's a swamp, tadpoles and all). The wiring up to the pool was buried about 1" below the ground...
