Flood Light on a Deck
Background: Bill, a Handyman from Pittsburgh, PA.
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 ?
