Question: I want to install a flood light on my deck. I have a 200amp service there is a double 30 amp breakers on this 10 gauge wire not used coming up to the deck I had installed for a pool heater, but changed my mind on that so i have this wire coming out taped and rolled up not in use. Advise me how to install a 15 amp on off switch to control flood lite operation can I use current setup ?

Dave’s Reply:
Thanks for your electrical question Bill. The 30 amp circuit could be converted to a 15 amp 120 volt circuit or a 30 amp sub-panel could be installed where a 15 amp 120volt circuit could be fed out to the deck light switch and fixture using surface conduit. Keep in mind that weather proof materials must be used. You will find all the wiring diagrams and resources necessary to assist you here in the website.
