Had to replace pump and motor for above ground pool. (Did it myself ) Former motor was powered with the twist lock. New Haywood 1HP does not come standard with twist, only 3-prong. Currently using a 12/3 25' extension cord to power the filter motor. (Only 10' away).
My question is:. Should I find a way to use the twist plug? I noticed home depot sells an adapter from 3 prong to twist, is that safe and efficient? Or do I hire an electrician to do their thing and convert the 3prong to twist? Can I use the twist from previous motor?
