Customer Questions & Answers

would this be a good product for running a pool filter?

Asked by: Joseph
Yes, we installed ours to run a water pump that pressurizes well water to various hose outlets around our yard. The only things you will need to pay attention to are the number of amps that your pool filter draws as this outlet is rated to 20 amps. If the pool filter motor needs more than 20 amps it will trip the breaker inside the GFCI. You will also need to use the correct gauge/diameter wire between the pool filter and the outlet to carry the electrical load.

Does the switch turn on and off the outlet or can the switch be hard wired and the outlets provide 2 unswitched recepticals?

Asked by: Anonymous
The box can be wired inside however you like. You could even have two different circuits (one for a light, one for additional receptacles) running into this box.

Proper wiring

I bought this unit to connect a small water fountain out by my pool. I ran the black wire to switch, from the switch to the bottom outlet and the neutral directly to the bottom outlet. The bottom outlet works however when I plug something into the top outlet there is no power. So I ran a pigtail off the power source: 1 black wire to the switch then to bottom outlet(like I wrote above), and the other black wire pigtail directly to the top outlet. Hoping to have one outlet controlled by the switch and the other always have power. However neither have power. Any suggestions?
Asked by: Andrew
Oh no, do not pig tail off the power source wire, you bypassed the Ground Fault Interrupter.

Yes, it's a simple backyard outlet/switch that will need to be wired to the house.

20 Amp Backyard Outlet with Switch and GFI Receptacle is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 30.

Very heavy metal box with powder coated finish. Well worth the price. We shall see how the bees and wasps treat this cover as it may be a welcome site for their new home. This is made by an American company for G.E. I wired the switch to the outlet so it is only powered when I want it powered. It is for my rear deck. Sealed all screw holes w/silicone and used stainless screws for rust prevention.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality heavy duty outlet box The color is great fits right in with nature. I am using the switch for a light we have outback and the outlet to control our water fountain and bug zapper. Or you can wire the switch to control the outlet that is in the box that way you can plug something in and just turn it off with the switch. I am very please with this box it is water proof and lockable. There is plenty of room when the lid is closed so your cords can exit freely. Its made out of galvanized steel so you could stand on it ( if you wanted to).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy Duty. Top-of-the-line outlet and switch box, for outdoor use. It comes with minimal parts. You will need some additional electrical parts and wiring. The ground wires are pre-wired only. It will be easy if you are familiar with electrical wiring as the instructions are minimal. There are a limited number of wiring hole plugs on the back, but 4 of the sides have knockouts. There is no way to back wire the outlet, and there are no pigtails, so you will need to wire the side lugs in the traditional way. I found I had to remove the switch to wire it as there was no easy access to the lugs. I wish it was not preassembled. I upgraded an outdoor yard sump pump switch to a switch with a GFCI Outlet. It works great. I wired the outlet to always be live, and the switch to operate the sump pump. You can wire the outlet to be switched if desired. Be sure to caulk and seal the back of the box, and the top and sides of the box against the wall, once installed to be sure it is water-tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Military strength As not everyone that wants to buy an outside outlet is aware of what a GFCI is, a condensed explanation, then this is for you. That outlet is called a ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI). It's there to protect people from electrical shock, so it is completely different from a fuse. GFCI monitors the amount of current flowing from hot to neutral. If there is any imbalance, it trips the circuit. It is able to sense a mismatch as small as 4 or 5 milliamps, and it can react as quickly as one-thirtieth of a second, making the safety of the user much better than simply using an outlet. This Leviton smartlockpro GFCI receptacle measures 7 inches by 3 inches with the door open and 7 X 5 with the door shut, giving the unit a lot of room inside and has the ability to use as a simple `line` or as a line and load. This can be wired omitting using the enclosed attached switch rendering the outlets always live, or as having it as a switched outlet. I am using mine for my garage door opener, therefore it suits my purpose to have it wired as `always live`. At 4Lb weight, this is indeed a heavyweight receptacle. The design makes for only one screw to secure the metal plate to the base that holds the switch and outlets making very easy to remove to be able to wire it and replace. The door when closed makes for an all-weather protection. I did actually try this by spraying it using a hose pipe and then found that was still dry inside the cover. A well designed and solidly made unit with a strict safety code applied. The heavy duty paint should ensure many years of protection against the elements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fully weatherproof The instructions and schematic were very clear. I installed this in my backyard and it is perfect. I live in the hills so it stays very wet and this box protects everything from the weather. I have string lights plugged in and I don't have to worry about them if it rains. I just switch them on when I want to use them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from exactly what I needed My house is old and falling apart, just like me. Of the four electrical outlets that should be accessible from my back yard, none have GFCIs, one doesn't work at all, and the other two are practically inaccessible because of plantings that have spread a lot during the past 60 years (so I don't even know if they still work or not). The only one I can use is several feet back inside an ancient shed about 50 feet from the house, so I have to open the door, move stuff around (whatever outdoor power equipment is out of season at the time) so I can get to the outlet, and then undo all that when I'm finished. In the winter, I often can't get to it at all without shoveling several feet of snow off the ramp in front of the shed door, which I have never yet been sufficiently motivated to do (I enjoy resting a lot more than working). As soon as I saw this product, I thought, "Aha!", so I ordered it. It's exactly what I needed. I just drilled a hole in the shed wall, ran wires to the outlet inside, and mounted this on the outside where I can get to it easily any time I need it, and maybe not get electrocuted as a bonus. The cover is huge, with way more room inside than the itsy-bitsy plastic covers that are advertised as "in-use" but will accommodate only the daintiest cords and plugs. They may be okay for Christmas lights, but this one has plenty of room for two huge all-season 12- or even 10-gauge extension cords--even with the cover closed. The switch I don't really need, but maybe I'll discover a need for it later. I'm delighted with this box. By the way, another reviewer made a big deal about rain funneling straight onto the outlet if you leave the cover jacked all the way open, but I can think of a solution to that problem that's a lot easier than mounting a bunch of gaskets and bumpers on the box: just close the cover! It's actually hard to get the cover open far enough to do what he described anyway, so it looks to me like a problem that was practically forced to happen.
