I have recently purchased a new pump and am trying to get it wired correctly!
My older pumps motor was a marathon 1hp motor. When I removed the whole pump and began to look at the wiring it looked like this
The wire looks like it is white, but there was actually red color to the insulation. And although it is hard to see in the picture in the lower right hand corner there was a switch that seemed to be a voltage select which was selected to low.
My new pump is a speck easy fit. It came set up with 230 volt. I thought my previous pump was a 230v so I wired the new pump with the white/red wire to L1 and the black to L2.
With the pump wired this way it is running, but I feel as if something is not right.
So I tried to check the voltage from the wire from the timer to the pump and it appears to read 115v.
So am I supposed to rewire the new pump to the 115v and flip the switch like the image shows..
And if I am then which wire is the neutral? Would that be the white/red wire and then black positive. Which means I would have to move black to L1 and the other wire to L2 right?
If you're wondering here is the crazy wiring in the timer box with the red,black and green wires running to the motor on the right.
any help would be appreciated!
