Any way I can not screw this up?
Someone will correct me if I'm wrong but I believe there are 5. Two for the line coming in, two for the load going to the down receptacles, and a green one for the ground.

The GFCI should be labeled with a load and a line. The wires coming from the box should be in the "line" and the wires going to the downstream receptacles should be in the "load" side. I'm pretty sure thats how it goes.

Edit: removed previous response. The pic is accurate. It's showing the two lower terminals for connecting to the source (LINE) and the two upper terminals (called LOAD) for feeding downstream outlets.

Unless I'm seeing it wrong, you could reverse this, paralleling the standard and the input of the CGFI outlet, and you could plug in the NON CGFI for non-CGFI, and plug into the CGFI when CGFI is required.

I was thinking along the lines of this (below) for 1 CGFI'ed and 1 NON-CGFI'ed.



(sorry for the crude drawing, I made it quick).

That's a neat pic. Do you think you could draw one with a circuit in this order, for the electrically challenged like myself?

source > gcfi outlet > on/off switch > pump

What if I want 2 switches? One that brings power to the GFCI outlet on my toolbox and the other to the pump? So the #1 switch would have to be on for the #2 switch to be able to activate the pump.

Can you draw this up as well, if you've got a few minutes?

Thanks everybody!

Throw in a 3-way switch and you'd have what you want.

I'll try to do a quick drawing when I have a few minutes.

Here.

3-Way switch toggles from non-CGFI to CGFI. Also turns on/off the pump when you throw the switch (added bonus!)

Nice! Thanks for the pic. I think I get it. Now where does the white wire from the pump get connected?

If it's 110V, attach the 2 line wires of the male plug to the legs, and attach the ground wire to the ground leg.

Is the GFCI outlet in this pic always on or is it controlled by the 3 way switch? Is the three way switch required or can u use a single pole? I am attempting to wire an extension cord (source) to a GFCI outlet then to a switch to control my march pump. I have the box and switch shown in this video.
