GFCI for Sump? or No
One of the problems I'm trying to "solve" is my sump-pump (more accurately, my 3 sump pumps; 1 is water powered though). One sump (3/4HP) is currently connected to the single outlet, with the second (1/2HP) as standby (not plugged in). The circuit it is connected to is in the basement, meaning if the breaker blows, I wouldn't likely realise it quickly. The plan is to run a new 14/3 circuit from the box to the sumps, so I can connect both on their own circuits, and I then have a legitimate functioning backup.
I am curious if the sumps should have their own GFCI outlets, or possibly an even more exotic breaker. The current plan is to use a normal quad 15A breaker with the two sumps as the linked breakers. If this matters, the sumps are in a cellar that is separated from the house with a fire-rated door. The cellar has the city water supply in it, which feeds the house + a water powered sump in the pit, and there is also only a single electrical circuit controlling the lights and the single sump (so, if I do my plan, the cellar will then have 3 circuits). The existing outlet is about 3' off the ground, and about 4.5' from the pit. The cellar consistently sits around 55F, and 50% humidity.
If I can use GFCIs, I plan to daisy-chain a single commonly used lighting circuit from each, so I visually know if either GFCI has failed/tripped. The other option is to have the GFCIs outside of the cellar, then daisy-chain the cellar-outlets as regular outlets.
