    Hayward AQR3 and 1 1/2 hp super pump wiring help

    Need help understanding please. I'm checking wiring of my pool that was installed last year because I'm installing a Intermatic T104 timer.
    Hayward AQR3 and Hayward Super Pump 1 1/2 hp installed on same circuit breaker 220 20a NO GFCI installed. Wiring used is 14G TWN 75 FT1 Super Slick Elite.
    I have a 220 20a GFCI I'm installing for both.
    Will that breaker size work for both pump and SWG?
    Is 14g wire sufficinet or should i use 12g Romex?

    The reason I have the 220 20a GFCI replacement breaker is i thought the wiring was 12g instead of 14g.
    I already have 12g Romex.
    Would it be safe to re wire using 12g Romex and keep 20a breaker?

    14 GA wire is not sufficient for a 20 amp circuit. 20 amp requires 12 GA wire.

    There are codes that speak to type of wire that can be used for the pool. I am not sure that romex is allowed.
