Aloha guys & gals...
Just checking in with any of you who know your electricity more confidently than I do...
I have a Hayward 115V 1HP 2-speed pump I acquired that I am planning to use as a mobile pump for cleaning rainwater catchment tanks...only HI speed is needed, and I want to keep the switching simple (On and Off).
The motor wiring schematic shows:
PIN 3--Hi Speed Line
PIN 4--Lo Speed Line
I am bringing in a 3-wire, 12ga extension cord to a waterproof "ON-OFF" switch. I plan to wire nut the neutral (white) wire, and run the hot black wire (115V) through the switch, and ground to the ground screw, of course. I then plan to have the neutral (white) wire go to PIN 2, the hot black wire go to PIN 3, and the ground to the motor ground. I am completely ignoring PIN 4, since Lo speed isn't needed (and a "speed choice" switch isn't needed).
Does this sound right to you guys?
