Can anyone tell me what I need to wire the pump for my above ground pool? My filter and pump is Hayward Perflex EC50 D.E. filter system with 1.5hp Power-Flo Pump EC50C80X5S . I will run new line from electrical panel in my basement to the pump. I will use 12AWG wire.
My question is what breaker size should I use in the panel , how to place GFCI protection (should I just use a GFCI receptacle where I plug in the pump?) . Also I have seen in some instructions that I should not use the cable and plug that came in with the pump since it is for testing purpose only. It's says to use twist-lock plug. Is that true?
