Best way to GFCI protect a pool?

I have a 220V pump motor and also a spa air pump, as well as a 110v pool light (which is on a standard lightswitch). I'd like to put them all on GFCIs. For the light I could just install a GFCI switch, but I'm not sure about the motors. Is the easiest way to just put in a GFCI at my circuit breaker panel?

Yes, that would be the most simple way to do it.

If the circuit breakers are a long distance from the pool equipment, and the wiring is in an underground pipe, it may not be the best solution as tiny pinholes in the conductors can cause the devices to trip. It would certainly be the easiest solution though, and if it didn't work out, the wiring to the pool could be changed with the panel relocated to the pool equipment

If the 120V circuit is pulled off the same line as the 240V make sure the panel GFCI breaker has neutral protection. The other type is only for 240V circuits that don't use a neutral and will trip in there is a 120V load across line and neutral.

ahh, good point. I'd never have thought of that.
