Hi Again, I decided to follow the advice given to me from this site and purchase the Pentair SuperFlow 2 Speed pump (340042) to replace an old 1.5 hp Hayward.
However, there was no toggle switch when the pump arrived (thought there would be ). So I purchased the switch (79129900) from INYO Pools and can really use some guidance with the wiring.
The existing cable providing power to the pump has a Black, White and Green wire. It is 220v (there's two 20 amp breakers in tandem at the main panel.)
Those three wires are connected to the old pump as follows:
L1 - White wire
L2 - Black wire
Green to ground screw
Inside the Pentair, the connections are labeled 1, 2, 3 or 4 (not L1, L2, A) and the toggle switch I purchased has a Yellow, White and Black wire. (see the pic I included)
My questions are:
1) Which pump connectors do I connect my Black and White wires to that provide the power, and
2) What do I do with the Black wire from the toggle switch, since it has a plastic cap over it.
Hope the pic helps
