It completely depends on the type of system, as well as the make and model of all the components.

comment What type of tool do I need to remove this screw?
Looks like a proprietary design, used to prevent unauthorized access. You'll likely have to make your own tool, buy/steal one from the manufacturer, or have a dealer/repair shop remove it for you.

comment GFCI circuit for hot tub tripping after move
Are you saying you get a shock touching the water? If so, I'd say you have a ground fault. In which case the breakers are working as designed.

If the transformer only gets power when the dusk-2-dawn sensor is closed (ON). You won't be able to turn the pump on, unless the sensor is closed (ON). If you want to control the lights and pump independently, the control circuit has to be after the transformer.

comment How can I install a light fixture in the ceiling of a finished room?
@benrudgers I agree that not everybody should be doing their own construction work. That's why when I answer questions I try to explain things further, provide drawings, examples, and warnings, rather than simply answering the question. I'm also not afraid to suggest somebody seek professional help, when I feel they are in over their heads.
