Question about Pentair Pool & Spa
Cannot get the pump to come on. Is the L1 and L2 from the breaker or the controller (capicator box)?

Either one. Neutral to the other post. Be sure to set the voltage change device to 115V to match your incoming line voltage.

Shouldn't be a white line on a 220 circuit but some people use them. Red and Black is the standard. If you are sure they supply 220 VAC, which I would verify, it doesn't matter which one goes to which terminal. 120 or 3 phase matters. If you have a multi meter, put the red lead on the black wire and the black lead on the white wire. If you read 220, good. If you read 120, it will make a difference.

For your 240 volt operation L1 and L2 will both be Hot 120volt lines.
Ground to green ground screw and bonding wire to bonding lug (if needed)

Hi, assuming you have 4-conductor wire, use the black and red wires for L1 and L2. It doesn't matter which goes to which. If you do not have a red wire, use black and white. The green or bare wire in a 3-wire cable goes to the ground. If you have 4-conductor wire, the ground wire is the one you used for the GFCI on the breaker--usually the white wire. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
