I am to the stage to rewire of my pump. I will not be including any of the actual motors only the lighting system. The pump has three lights one for the face plates, one for the add glass and one for the globe.

The lights are going to be LED bulbs (California) and are 5watts a piece so very little collective draw.

What size wire would you suggest?

Thanks

Grant

Agreed but need to wait just a few more years to max my pension! Only LED bulbs readily available.

Thanks for all the input. I would much rather have you guys provide the input verse the California Commission on Hobby Oversight and Taxation or the Special District on the Restoration of Previously Toxic Stuff and Taxation.

I use 14 guage wire on all my pumps. Easily handles the lighting requirements.
