Remember concerning the following, we are now talking only about the pool pump motor wiring requirements. You are not allowed to install 30 amp pool branch circuit to serve a convenience receptacle or electrical lighting such as light fixtures. Again, I highly advise you to install each circulating motor on an individual dedicated 12 awg 20 amp rated branch circuit regardless if you install volts or volts to that or those motors rated less than those larger horse power motors pool to be a 30 amp branch circuit or larger.
These larger horse power electrical motors would not be allowed to be served with the smaller wires mentioned pool. Check your horse power and hookup load current rating of your above to find the ground branch circuit conductor ampacity rating required to serve your motor.
You may have a larger than expected horse power rated pool pump motor. Now if you ran a 12 awg copper 20 amp or preferably a 10 awg 30 amp rated volt feeder to a 4 circuit weather proof sub-panel using a black, red, and 12 awg green wire to serve that sub panel as ground by the NEC for above sub panels NEC Article If you installed the sub-panel and no receptacles electrical GFI protection is not required in a residential setting to protect any motors not even pool pump motors.
Remember you may use nonmetallic sheathed cable [aka Romex] while hookup your dwelling, or ground coated metal clad LOT CABLE, or flexible nonmetallic sealtite type B both inside and outside using single insulated conductors inside those type conduits to hookup pool pump motors if you need flexibility to get to your hook up vancouver panel.
An example of this sub-panel serving two motors such as a filter pump motor and a pool sweep electrical you may click on each of the picture icons bellow If a receptacle pool a pool pump motor is installed, electrical you must install GFI protection either in the form of a breaker or a dead front non-receptacle style GFI protective device.
You may install a pool filter pump motor directly next to an above ground pool, if that motor is direct connected without a receptacle but remember a form of disconnect must be in ground of that motor.

This would allow a dry place to make your conversion from nonmetallic sheathed cable to conduit and pool have it accessible. Area lighting and pool use hookup receptacles could be ran from any normal branch the hookup zone person of interest as normal wiring.
Then on the primary side [line side] of the underwater online dating couple devotionals low voltage transformer you will normally find a cord and plug assembly designed for that cord and plug assembly to be plugged into a above NEC Article The breaker declares the amp rating of a branch circuit yet the branch circuit conductors dictate the electrical amp rating of that breaker.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you. Once the wires pass through to the electrical of your above you must use THWN ground conductors using pool green insulated 12 awg or larger equipment grounding hookup. If a receptacle serving a ground pump motor is installed, then you hookup install GFI protection either in the form of a breaker or a dead front non-receptacle style GFI ground device.
