210.8 A 3 and pumps
Every outdoor receptacle at a house needs to be GFCI protected, unless it is for snow or deicing, fine.
I got a call today for a septic tank sewage pump that trips it's GFI, every once in a while (3 or 4 months). The float switch and pump are plugged into a weatherproof receptacle, with a in use cover, the GFI receptacle is not a WR type. The last septic pump I wired had a slick pedestal arrangement so that there was not a receptacle and no need for a GFI.
So far, the best solution I have for getting rid of the GFI is to cut off the plug ends and make the proper connections in a j box (knowing that one cord is the float switch that turns on the pump). Can anybody think of a better way?
