Spa blower toggle

I mistakenly purchased a replacement spa blower that does not have a toggle switch (and of course waited until after the return window to notice it...)

My question is: is it possible to install a toggle switch or otherwise modify it to control the blower?

Specs:
Sunrunner SB24015
1.5 HP
240V
60Hz
5.3 Amp
3-wire

First post so please be gentle 😉

You need to put it in a weatherproof electrical box.

You still have your old blower with the switch you can post a pic of?

The replacement is a different model than the existing blower, but here are pics:

Your choices are to find a blower with an integrated toggle switch like you had or wire in an external switch into the power line of the blower you bought.
