    Hooking up new pump before opening

    Hi all, I need some help with a new pump. My old one went out the end of last season and I had a local small engine repair place replace it with the pictured pump.

    The hookups are different and I'm not sure how to connect it. I included photos of the old pump hooked up, the wires, and the new pumps connections. Any help appreciate!

    Do you know if your pump circuit is setup for 120 volts or 240 volts?

    I'm not sure, is there a way to tell?

    Yes, there is a way to tell if you understand electricity. I recommend that you call an electrician or pool guy to install your pump. It is not worth the risk.

    Sounds good. Thought it would be as easy as hooking the wires back up. Oh well.

    Yeah sorry, the wire colors aren't matching up and it seems like you need more electrical instructions than I can give to get it all to make sense. Better safe than sorry. Better luck on the next project!

    No worries, I appreciate you taking a look. Just hate having to pay for the pool guys to look at stuff, they charge so much.. I'm sure the next project won't be far off haha
