I have 1 HP Pentair Challenger High flow pump that is rated 115 / 220V, amps 14.2/7.1. how can I tell if it is running of a 220 circuit or a 110 circuit?
It has a circuit breaker outside by the pump. There is another circuit breaker in the electric box in the pool shed that also turns the pump off and that circuit breaker is a 220 circuit. so I am assuming it is running on 220 V.
What would be the advantage to connect this pump to 220 v instead of 110V?
I am also assuming it costs more to run the pump if it is connected to 220V circuit?
