Looking at a MaxFlo XL 2 speed pump to replace my aging Northstar. Currently have 115V at the pump but the wiring is there to convert to 230V. Obviously Ill need a new breaker, and since its 230V I dont think there is any other way to get GFCI protection on the line other than the breaker itself.
I have a Cutler Hammer type CH panel. I notice the smallest GFCI breaker they make is 20A, yet Hayward electrical specs say the pump will use a max of 6.1A@230V.
Is 20A acceptable? And judging by the price and availability, would 30A suffice as well? I cant find the 20A version but the 30A seems widely available.
Thanks in advance.
