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...

All 15 or 20A 125V OR 240V Hardwired or cord and plug.

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...
