For some reason the pictures of the wiring setup to the outlet didn't save so I don't know how it was connected.
I cut the pvc housing the wires so I could raise the outlet from not always getting water since it's on the ground.
The left pipe shows 12 gauge stranded wire with 2 hot wires, 1 neutral and 1 ground. These wires are coming from the electrical panel that controls my pool pump, heater...
The right pipe shows 16 gauge stranded wire with 1 hot wire, 1 neutral and 1 ground. These wires control the pool light.
I tried connecting the 2 hot wires and extended the wires with a 14 gauge solid wire. I wired all the hot wires to the line side of the GFCI. The problem I am having is when I turn on the circuit breaker, the pool light stays on and I can't turn it off unless i turn off the breaker.
How do I properly connect the electrical wires together?
