I get to install a receptacle for my sister's pool pump.
NEC 680 says the GFCI receptacle is required to be feed using an
insulated #12 Ground.
Anyone know why this is a requirement? I am guessing that this means
all the way back to the panel so fishing the wall will have to be done
in 1/2 inch flex. Running conduit in a house seems unnecessary.
Once you get inside a dwelling unit the ground can be a bare wire in a
cable like Romex. (1&2 family only)
It is just the outside wiring that needs the insulated ground. I think
it is a corrosion issue.
