Any Electricians out there ?
I want to put an above ground pool pump on a Swithced GFCI receptacle outside. The pump is a 1 hp. pump and runs off of 110. I'll have this wired (dedicated) to a 20 Amp breaker in my garage. I will bury conduit exterior for the wire. I heard that the wire has to be "special" (THWN ?). The wire can be 12/2 3 wire, but as far as I can tell, the local hardware stores only sell interior Romex wire, or exterior UF-B wire. QUESTION, can I use the UF-B wire in the conduit ? I know it's rated wet, but want to make sure it takes any heat in a conduit. Thanks in advance.
If I have to use THWN.... where the heck can I buy it..... other than online.
