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.

SOURCE: Once the booster pump (for polaris 280) is turned

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.

SOURCE: why is my polaris 280 booster pump is revving much

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.

I am replacing an old booster pump with a Polaris PB4-60. I have three wires, One Red, One Blue, and One Green. Now I know the Green is Ground, but which poles do the Red and Blue go? Both seem to say...


It is impossible for us to know what voltage you are running as you did not list that information here.
Typically a green-red-blue comination of wiring suggests 240 VAC connections.

Also, every motor you buy is required to have a wiring diagram on the side of the motor. This should tell you where to connect the wires.
IF you are running 240 v as suspected, both the red and blue wires are "hot" wires on the load side of your timing box. Simply look at the side of the motor and follow the diagram on wiring the pump.

Typically most motors in the USA use a L1 and L2 terminal to connect the 2 "hot " wires.
This pump does come factory wired for 240 volts, so it probably is just 1 each of the "hot" lines to L1 and L2.
Before connecting, make sure you confirm your systems voltage with a multimeter.


Below is a link to the installation manual for this pump. But it does not list electrical diagram since its on the side of the motor.
