I don't have a 2008 Code book handy. Is it true that now the pumps for the swimming pools have to be GFCI protected whether direct wired Or plug in ?? Thanks .. Steve...

i did find a way to provide gfi protection on a 3ph pool motor once, the inspector gave it the hairy eyeball at first, and then the nod after it clicked what i was up to

and today i did up a hot tub off a contactor, who's coils is on the same circuit as the patio lighting. I figure if there's an incident, shut the whole shebang down...
