Wiring for Split-Wire or Split-Feed Outlets
In this diagram, two duplex receptacle outlets are installed in the same box and wired separately to the source using pigtails spliced to connect the terminals of each one. You can even use liquid-tight flexible tubing although it is expensive and not generally used for long runs. Unless you are signed in to a HubPages account, all personally identifiable information is anonymized. Just rewire the new receptacle the same way the old one was wired. Number 12 wire is the correct size for a 20 amp breaker. Three-wire cable is supplying the source for the switches and the black and red wires are each connected to one switch.
