Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be assisting you. To accomplish getting power for an always hot receptacle you'll need to pick up the circuit ahead of the control box and either run a seperate run to that receptacle or if the run to the pump outlet is in conduit, run the circuits together.
It's possible. All you need to do is extend the feed before the connection to the control terminations to the additional outlet.
Splice them at their entry into the control box
At the control box you have incoming feed and put going control wires. By splicing the incoming and running it along with the controlled wires will give you both outlets that you want.
Sorry, typo..... out going controlled wires.
If you want to, yes you can. I thought you wanted an additional hot outlet. You can also put a double pole double through switch in the control box allowing for the single outlet to be auto it hot all the time.
I can only reply to you when the message gets to me.
You should have power to the control and from there to the pump. A splice on the power to bypass the control will give you power to the alternate. Now this can all be accomplished for use with a switch in the control box. It would allow the pump to be auto or manual.
To have a working outlet at your second breaker box, an additional set of wires would be necessary if you want the second breaker idependant. I don't know why there is a second panel anyway.
There in lies the problem. Installing the second breaker box and expecting to have an outlet live all the time when the feed down to the new breaker is controlled from the house is impossable. The feed is either hot or not depending on the control box and the float switch. You'll need a second circuit to accomplish what you intend.
Float is at the house and determines when power is going to pump. Installing a panel with independant breakers to pump and another to an outlet. Can't have power without the float switch closed. You can only have the 2 outlets powered depending on the float switch.
Come back when you can.
Let me ask exactly what you have with the float. The reason being that with a bladder tank and a pressure switch at tge pump the single feed would be able to power the sub panel. But there is another issue doing that, the sub panel needs a 4 wire feed and a driven ground rod.
It may be faster and better for us to speak via a phone. I'll send the offer.
The use of switches and a panel is not workable. You have one controlled circuit and you want to impossibly modify it
I think we've come to the end. I'll opt out because we aren't getting anywhere. Good luck.
