I'm upgrading to a 220v variable speed pump setup from a 1HP single speed 110v SuperPump.
I do not currently have 220v to my equipment so I'll need to run it.
I have an unused 4-wire (circa late 80's) dryer plug in my basement that is unused because we have a gas dryer. It's wired to a dual 20a (40a total) breaker at the panel.
Can I repurpose this wire to feed the pool pump? Once removed from its current location I think it may be long enough to even reach the pump all on its own without the need to splice anything. I'll need to drill a hole in the foundation wall and add proper conduit and such but that's certainly not beyond my handyman skills (heck, I installed my own inground pool ), nor is the wiring either actually so long as this is all code? I'm just not terribly familiar with 220v vs 110.
