I see on most control panels that the switches for the pumps are wired to an outlet then the pump plugged into the outlet. What is the reasoning for this? Why couldn't the pumps be wired right to the switches?
So if the pump came without a plug is there any reason not to do that. I am just thinking that is 2 less holes I have to cut in my box. I just think it is easier to use the 7/8" KO punch and put in a liquid tight conector than to try and cut holes for the outlets plus it would give me more room in my box.
