recommended amps for a pool sub panel.

I will be installing an outdoor subpanel to power our swimming pool pump, and a receptacle. I was just curious how many amps I should dedicate? The pump draws 15 amps while running, and I was thinking of 15 amps for a receptacle or two. The pump might not necessarily be running when the pool is in use, so I'm not if I should wire the panel for 30 amps, or 20 ect. Thanks. John.

I would run 30 amps (#10) in case you want to run a shop vac or leaf blower out there. Stranded THHN would likely pull in your 1/2" pipe much easier.
