I am replacing an old 2 speed with a new Pentair 1hp 2speed (mod 011486). I assumed wiring would be the same as the old pump.
The first thing I noticed was a notice on the motor that the pump must be installed with a two, multi, or variable speed motor controller.
Isn't that the purpose of the switch on the back of the motor or am I missing something?
Where the old pump had two terminals and a ground, the new one has three terminals and a ground??? #1 #2 and #3or4
Everything I have found on line says to go by the wiring diagram on the motor---- for some reason that part of the label is not very legible??
