Help clear this up for me. These questions are in general about a outdoor spa for a single family dwelling.
Article numbers if you could...
1. Conductors after the disconnect are required to be copper? (I have always did this, thought I read it in the past but now I can't find it.)
2. Spa/pool motors that are hardwired are NOT required to be GFCI protected?
3. If #2 is correct, why do I think I a need GFCI disconnect for a spa? (I can come up with reasons if the spa power feeds lights etc., but I have seen spas that at the disconnect have a #10 wire for the motor, and then #12 for the lgts. So sense the #10 is basically hardwired to the motor, it doesn't need to be GFCI protected?)
