The diagram on the side of the pump shows how it sould be wired for low volatge. I'm having a problem wiring for high volatge and posted the diagram. Use the link to access.

One to each line. Be sure you set the motor to the same voltage as the line you are connecting. They are 230V out of the box and your wire colors indicate you are likely connecting the pump to a 115V line.

There is a bad seal and/or gasket in the pump allowing it to leak. It is usally the seal. Take it to a local electric motor or pump shop and the repair is probably under $50 total. You could also buy the parts to try it yourself, but the seal that pump takes (AS-1000) is a little tricky to seat properly. Besides, if your bearings are also damaged, the shop could fix that as well.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
The booster pump can not turn any faster than its nameplate speed. If you think it is revving up, it is probably because it is running louder and/or rougher than normal. The pump seal and/or bearings are becoming worn and will need servicing. A local electric motor repair shop should have the parts for you to buy or they could repair it for you. Often times a gasket will need to be replaced as well but all told the repair should be ~$100 or so.
