I am in the process of trying to wire up my new 3/4HP Whisperflo pool pump.. I have the pump inside an unfinished ( meaning no panelling or insulation- it has a roof and door/ window intact) pool house with studs visible on all sides which I will call north, south, east, west for ease of clarity..it measures 4' x 9' and is 7' tall.. In the centre of the north wall is hydro which comes up through the floor by plastic conduit, into a receptacle box. My 25 yr old duraglas pump used to have to be manually plugged/unplugged (big pain) and likely not correct for my IG pool.. Not sure... Anyways I know "how" to run the wiring but not sure of the style I should use.. The pump sits unsecured on the concrete floor.. I have a metal junction box on the west wall, 16" off the floor and about 2-3 feet away from the pump.. I don't think it is a good idea to just run a 14/2 cable from the junction box into my pump ( if the pump was accidentally kicked-I could rip live wires out of it) .. So I know I need to secure it and have an idea how I will do it.. Once secured though... Should I run BX CABLE from the metal junction box into the pump? I'd think it would rust with the chemical exposure over time.. But then it seems an odd setup to run plastic conduit from the metal junction box to the pump.. Kind of an inside-outside setup if you understand what I mean (from a wiring standpoint...physically it is completely indoors) .. Any ideas or pictures of a good way to do this??
Thanks everyone- great group of people on here, been a big help so far .. Looking forward to some good ideas..
