I usually understand how to do this but I am truly stumped.
There was a single GFI protected already in place and I wanted to run a switched 2 gang outlet from the box on my deck.
After turning power off, I installed an outdoor GFCI receptacle to an outdoor switch in a duplex receptacle as follows....
I connected the black and white wires from the house to the line side of the GFI, and corrected connected all of the ground wires together and to the box.
I then took a black, hot, wire from the load side of the GFI and put one leg of the switch on it.
I ran the white from the load side and the black from the other terminal of the switch to the outdoor wire that is buried and ends up about 40 feet away. I stalled a outdoor box with a waterproof receptacle to it and plugged in the pond pump.
I repowered the circuit check the circuit with a tester and got an O K reading. Turned the switch to on andthe pump ran for a while but then the circuit popped. Now it pops as soon as I switch on.
Should I have run the switch from the line side??
Can you please help?
