Questions about Electrical Projects In Progress:


James in McNabb, Illinois: Wiring For a Pool Pump
I recently purchased a home with a pool. I was going to hook up the pump to the outside Weather-Resistant GFCI and I noticed there was no ground wire. As I was inspecting the wiring, I followed it back to garage outlet it is tied into, and there are just 2 wires. I was wondering is this safe since it's for a pool. Can I add a single wire? Just not sure what to do and don't want to let the family get in until I know. Thanks!

James in Evansville, Indiana: Adding Outlets in the Garage
I was going to add some more outlets in my garage. I started looking at the main wires from the house and I see that I have 1 black, 1 brown, and 1 white. It sounds to me like I have 2 positive and 1 neutral. Is this true? The house was built in the mid 60's.

James from Carson, California – Wiring a Cord for LED Lights
I have an old Air Hockey Table and today I replaced the power cord because the old one had broken, works great now, minus the fact that its an old fan giving it the air power. I'm going to be wiring up a switch to it, a simple ON/OFF light switch I had handy will work. The problem though, is that I want to wire some LEDs to it to have some more light on the playing surface. The issue is not getting the LEDs but how to wire them to the power source because they require so little voltage compared to the Hockey Table, I think the table is 125v. so I can't just wire them directly to the Main power source. I know how to wire them so they have a separate power source such as some batteries but I don't want to do that. Someone was telling me to use some resistors but I don't know how to wire these or which to buy.
