    Wiring a pump

    Hi Sorry if this has been asked before but I can't seem to find the answer. I'm hooking up a Pentair supoerflo vs 342001 to 220. The whip has red-hot, black-hot, copper ground and white neutral.

    The pump only has line 1 and 2, and ground. What am I supposed to do with the neutral? Since it 220 do I need to just tape it up and let it be?

    There is no neutral in a true 240 volt system. If you have 3 wires + the ground (which , by the way needs to be an insulated green wire not a bare copper) just ignore the white wire and connect the two colored wires to both the double pole breaker and to the terminals in the motor junction. You can cap it (white) on both ends.

    Thank you. I opened up the breaker box and for that line, both the bare copper and white wire were connected to the ground.
