I just got done using the seal assembly kit SPX1600TRA on my existing 1 HP Hayward Super Pump to change the gaskets and seal assembly. I noticed the electrical cord was worn and I am looking to replace the cord. My 1st question is what is the Max distance the pump can be from the GFCI. My existing wiring is currently a dedicated 20A breaker for the pump with 12AWG wire going to a junction box in my basement. Then it goes through the GFCI to the pump 15 feet away using (3) 12AWG solid wires through conduit to the pump power outlet. The pump is configured for 115V.
My 2nd question is should I use 12AWG or 10AWG for the power cord from the pump to the outlet and lastly I read somewhere that 1HP and above pumps should be 220V....Is that true?
Thank you in advance.
