From the specs that you are showing 800 watts @ 230 volts will pull under 3.5 amps. I would install a 20 amp 220 volt circuit with #12 wire. Just double check if the tub requires a 3 wire ckt (2 hots & ground) or a 4 wire ckt. ( 2 hots, neutral & ground) Make sure the ckt. is GFCI protected!

Pentair WhisperFlo 1hp, 230v, Dual Speed won't start in morning


If the high speed side of a two speed pump will not operate it is because there is a problem with the windings on the high side of the motor.
You will need to either take it to a motor shop and have them fix it or replace the complete motor.

I just installed a us pool pump motor eb841 1hp 3450rpm 208volt 56y and it is leaking water behind the square bell housing actually leaking bottom side of motor


There is a leaky water seal on the pump shaft housing between the pump and the motor.
The drain hole prevents water from going into the motor and this seal needs to be replaced before the motor is damaged.

Hi I have a jacuzzi. I would like to connect it DIY


You can get 2 types of Jacuzzi baths, 1 with just a pump which just jets the water via a small pump or 1 with the pump and elements that heats the water aswell as pumps the water through the jets. Because the 1 with the elements has a higher amp rating you need to run a cable from your distribution board to your bath but the 1 without the elements you will be able to tap off the nearest socket to the bath, you will be coming from your socket to a fused spur outlet, it would be better to get a switched fused spur outlet as you will be able to isolate the bath when not in use just by switching off the switch. from the spur outlet you will be wiring it into your motor on the bath, it should say the rating of the pump in amps on the tally plate of the motor or on the manual. For example if it says the motor draws 2 amps you will be putting a 3 amp fuse into your spur outlet so if there is a fault with the motor the fuse will blow instead of tripping the whole socket circuit. All jucuzzi baths has to be connected to the RCD side of your distribution board. If you are tapping off a socket don't worry about the RCD because all sockets should be on the RCD anyway, to check that the socket is connected to the RCD plug something into the socket you are tapping off of and press the test button on the RCD, the RCD should trip and while this is tripped check the lamp or whatever you plugged in shoud be off. The Fused spur should be fitted outside of the bathroom.

I need the manual of how to install the bath for the Comet 10 Jet Whirlpool 1500 x 1000 Bath. The Installer is having problem in getting the pump in the right position to work.


i don't have a solution for the manual however, the pump needs to be installed such that the bottom of the suction line going into the pump is 1/2" higher than the bottom of the suction elbow (coming out of the tub) thereby providing the pump with a flooded suction. This will provide the pump enough water to start pumping to the jets.

I just bought a AOSmith 1hp pool pump. I do not


Well first did you have an old one you're replacing? Check it. Second you could test your voltage with a tester (best idea then you know for sure). Third, you can look at the circuit breaker in your panel, and if it is a single breaker , it is 125V If it's a double pole breaker (two wide with wide handle) then it's 230V. Usually if it is 230V then the wires coming to it would both be black, or black and red, with a bare or green ground. Usually if it's 115V you'll have one black (hot), one white (neutral) and one bare or green(ground) but at times someone will wire one 230 with black and white. There should also be a large bonding copper jumper connected to a lug on the outside of the motor to bond your system to the pool (NOT AN EQUIPMENT GROUND)

I have a 1hp 115/230 phase 1 sprinkler pump what size pressure switch do i need 20/40 or30/50 ?


The pressure switch needs to be sized for the pressure and the motor current. The pressure would depend on your piping system, and hao many sprinklers you have on a section. You can buy a pressure switch that is adjustable, and you can set the pressure you need. You also must be sure the current rating (amps) of the pressure switch can handle the motor current (amps) there are is a wide range of switches available. You can't go wrong with a square d though. Available Home Depot, graingers, electrical supply etc.
