Hello and welcome to NGO pools how to guide section this video we will talk about how to wire a pool pump pool pumps are wired to run on either 230 volts or 115 volts most are run on 230 volts in our preset at the manufacturers at 230 volts if you're going to wire your own pool pump you must first know what voltage is coming to your pump from the houses circuit breaker also you must ensure that the electrical supply agrees with the motors voltage phase and cycle and that all electrical wiring conforms to local codes and NEC regulations if you are unsure to this voltage or are unfamiliar with the electrical codes and regulations have a professional electrician wire your pump for you or at least check your work failure to wire the pump correctly it can cause electrical shock or can damage your pool pump motor and void your warranty measure the voltage on the wires going to your pool pump see how to use a multimeter to test a pool pump motor or voltage this voltage will be either 230 to 240 volts or 115 to 120 volts pool pump manufacturers commonly list these as 230 V or 1 1 5 V generally you will have three wires coming to your pump for 230 volts you will generally have a red a black and a green wire the red and black wires are both hot there is no neutral the green wire is always the ground for 115 volts the three wires are generally black hot white neutral and green ground caution before you start wiring your pool pump turn off all power to the pump at the breaker box unscrew the two screws they'll hold the cover over the back end of the motor remove the cover to expose the electrical connectors screw a metal elbow on to your pool pump at the end of the motor run conduit from the metal box to the pump string your three wires through the conduit and metal elbow into the end of the motor screw the conduit collar onto the end of the elbow ensure that your wire size is adequate for the horsepower rating and distance from the power source check your pool pump owners manual for the correct size wire sizes generally run 14 AWG for motors up to the one horsepower and from 14 AWG to 10 AWG for larger motors depending on horsepower and voltage if you are wiring for 230 volts the three wires coming to the pool pump from the circuit box are red black and green the red wires attached to terminal one of on one the black wires attached to terminal 3 of line to the green wire is attached to the ground the black plug is positioned so that the black wires attached to terminal 5 for 230 volts the white wire is not attached if you are wiring for 115 volts the three wires to the pool pump will be black white and green attach the green wire under the ground screw attach the white wire to the terminal 1 of line 1 attach the black wire to terminal 3 of line to replace the pole pump motor cover and secure it with the two screws lastly your pull pump motor must be bonded in accordance with local Electric Code requirements use a solid copper conductor size 8 AWG or larger run this wire from a reinforcing rod to the pressure wire connector provided on the motor housing note in this example the wire coming from the bottom of the picture is going to the pump the upper wire is going to the heater tube on the heater if you have any additional questions please feel free to call us toll-free at you
