Pool Equipment Panel

956 Views 4 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Southeast Power
I have a customer that bought a spa and wanted it connected near the pool equipment panel.
200amp rated, fed with #8 and a #10 ground and #10 neutral
Existing 3/4 hp nameplate at 230 volts 5.5 amps
I get there and the spa is only rated at 40amps.
I pulled in the #3 I brought and left the #10 ground, I am going back to install a 60amp breaker instead of the 100amp I planned to use.
The spa will use a 40amp GFCI breaker with #8 and #10 neutral and #10 ground.
Question;
Am I OK leaving the #10 as a ground with the #3s or did I screw myself not pulling in #6s?
Will I have to increase the size of the ground?
I didnt do it because of VD or any other calculation.

installed, shall be increased in size proportionately according
to the circular mil area of the ungrounded conductors
