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...
