Good Morning All -
I've completed the plumbing for a new 1.5 HP Hayward pump that is used only for operating a waterfall. I'm not sure of where to connect the wires. There are three wires coming from the electric box - I know that green is the ground wire, as it was connected to the grounding screw on the old motor. But I'm not sure on the red and black wires. The motor has two screw connectors labeled L1 and L2. Pictures are attached. Can you please point me in the right direction.
I also attached a picture of the bonding wire that was attached to the old motor. The screw attachment on the old motor was on the side of the motor, and the new attachment is at the back end of the motor. So this wire won't reach the new attachment. Local hardware store advised me to use #8 copper wire and a butt splice (both of which I have, the butt splice is insulated). Will that work? Looks like the end of the bonding wire is pretty rusted - can I just cut that part off and rub the new edge with sandpaper to smooth it out?
