Later this week, I am having a contractor replace my 1HP Hayward single speed pool pump with the following pump:
Pentair SuperFlo VS Energy Efficient Variable Speed Pool Pump | 1.5HP Single Phase 115-230V 50-60HZ | 342001
It's specifications are: Input Voltage 115-230 Vrms nominalInput Current 13.2/12.0-11.5 AInput Frequency Single phase, 50 or 60 Hz
Current electric service is 115v GFCI outlet on....60' 12/2 copper circuit on 15amp breaker.
The new pump will run on 115v but would like to get confirmation that it's smart to also upgrade the electric to:
230v locking outlet on.... new 60' 12/3 copper circuit run from GFCI breaker.....and based on specs above 15 or 20amp GFCI breaker????
Also the new motor has a clock/shutoff on it, so I guess I don't need the shutoff at outlet box anymore....but looking for any recommendations on outlet box to use...hoping it accepts the water tight electrical conduit.
