  1. General Electrical Discussion
    Hi everyone, 100% city boy here who has never, ever -in 30 years- dealt with a swimming pool. Houses in my neighborhood all have urban-sized backyards and a customer has gotten themselves a 7 foot by 7 foot pool that basically looks like a bigger and thicker version of the tarp I used to put...

    I have a customer with this... We want to connect the hot tub where it is if possible without moving the existing telephone and TV service points. I know this is not ideal, but is it a code violation? I'm not sure. Thanks in advance. :glasses:

And, does the bond have to be number 8 all the...

    First time troubleshooting a hot tub. The GFCI was tripping constantly. Narrrowed it down to the transformer plugged into the circuit board. When I disconnected the transformer the GFI stayed on. I'm just wondering if this means the transformer is shot, or if I should be changing the circuit...

    Hi Everyone, First off, thanks for this great site; the Internet has, and is doing wonders to bring information to the forefront. I've been retired for a few years from commercial, and light industrial work as a Journeyman. Presently, I'm making a little extra ends meat by still 'turning...

    Does anyone know the article number in NEC that says the current ratting for the Jacuzzi GFI disconnect is supposed to be greater than or equal to the current rating of the feed breaker in the service panel? 680.43(A)(3) comes close but I don't think it is what I'm looking for. This question...
