Well we got our brand new pool installed yesterday and today. The pump and filter are sitting 8 feet away from the pool in the middle of the stinking yard, with the cord dangling just above the dirt. I actually checked down at the hardware store for a turnlock-to-3 prong connector so I could just run an extension to it, but I guess that adapter doesn't exist.
I'll be calling the pool place tomorrow, but since they're currently closed I figured I'd see what some internet experts said. I guess I'm assuming I'm supposed to wire up a receptacle for the turnlock? Can I got the plug off the end and replace it with a regular 3-prong, or is that just a stupid move? What's the purpose for the turnlok anyway...obviously it's harder to pull apart, but what beyond that?
