I wish I would have read more before I ran electrical to the pump.
I ran 12/2 wire about 30' from the main breaker box off a new 20a GFI breaker, to a pole with a single 110 outlet. There is a 12v converter (that was previously installed on this pole... the pool and equipment is used) that ran a single light inside the pool (which I have not hooked up yet and could take it or leave it having a light inside the pool).
I have since found out that my pump pulls 16a when hooked to 110 or 8a when hooked to 220. Of course it's hooked up to 110.
Would it have used LESS power if I hooked it to 220?
I have outside outlets on the outside of the house that are in the deck area so that's why I didn't worry about having more than one outlet at the junction box for the pump.
I'm just wondering before the grass grows back should I redo it to 220. Is there a cost savings?
I bought an Intermatic raintight outdoor timer but it's 110 and 15amps. So I can't use it I guess if the pump draws 16a currently?
I love to waste money... makes my day.
