SOURCE: Pool pump motor wiring issue

IF THE SCREW ABOVE IS IN THE METAL MOTOR HOUSING IT IS MOST LIKELY THE GROUND. GREEN WIRES ARE ASSOCIATED WITH GROUND IN ALL ELECTRICAL APPLICATIONS. YOU SHOULD BE SAFE IN HOOKING THE GREEN TO THE SCREW. HOPE THIS HELPS, JODY

green to srcew on the motor. this is ground.,
Black on T1
Red on T2

If the rotation is going the wrong way, simply switch the black to T2
Red to T1.

Check this before you couple it to the pump..

SOURCE: Pool pump wiring

O.K. MONIKA READ VERY CAREFULLY!!!!
I DON'T REALLY LIKE TO GIVE 220 VOLT WIRING OVER THE INTERNET,LET ALONE THE PHONE,but I have a good feeling that if you all replaced the seal, you have an understanding of what you are dealing with: 1st make sure all power is disconnected,Breakers too(hey I have to say this so don't take it to heart), now the two black wires are 115 volts each, and the white one is ground, now enough said, the wires going from the source, (pool house,pump room), should be one white,one red, and one green, if this is the case the black and white wires, are the ones to hook up your black wires to, it does not matter (which of your black wires) go to either the red one or black coming from the source, and if your white on the motor is your ground it should goe to the green one coming from your source, if you don't already have them,I SUGGEST, you go to home depot,or lowe's and purchase the BLUE "water tight" wire caps, they can and are a "life saver anytime electrical is used around water, they cost some, but isn't a life worth a buck or two more? remember 115 volts can kill you if your around water 220-248volts will really kill you, so please check and double check all that I have told you. make sure everyone is clear,(pet's too), and flip the breaker, and you should be in business, god bless, happy 4th, and please let me know if I can help more

SOURCE: how do I change the electric wire in a franklin

You have 4 wires coming out of the fuse box , one white , one bare, one black, one red, right? The fuse is a double pole, 220 volt, ?30?amp, guessing, and you are now wiring up to a 110 volt, motor which needs 20 amps, so, remove one wire from the breaker, red or black, shut it off first, pull the wire off, tape it and mark it what it was. leave the red wire on there, or the black, it doesn't matter, Now you have one hot, one ground, one neutral, hook them up to the pump, the box on the pump has screws, one silver, one brass, the brass is always hot, the colored wires are always hot, The silver screw is neutral, the white is neutral, always, and the ground wire goes to the ground screw, maybe outside of the box. You should be all set, tape off the old colored wire you didn't use and mark it . You might need it someday. Hope this helps.

Hi Eglenni,

Here are the specs for your pump:

Thermoplastic Shallow Well Jet Pump 3/4 HP. This new revision of an "old hand" provides good pressure pumping from wells where the depth-to-water is 25' or less.

BODY CONSTRUCTION: Thermoplastic
HORSEPOWER: 3/4
MAXIMUM CAPACITY: 12 GPM
FLOW at 10' LIFT and 40 PSI: 9.7 GPM
MAX LIFT: 25'
MAXIMUM PRESSURE: 78 psi
PRESSURE SWITCH SETTING: 30/50
SUCTION PIPE SIZE: 1-1/4" NPT
DISCHARGE PIPE SIZE: 1" NPT
AMP DRAW (full load): 6.1 amps on 230v / 12.2 amps on 115v
VOLTAGE: 230v / 115v, 60 Hz
RECOMMENDED BREAKER: 15 amp on 230v / 20 amp on 115v
MAXIMUM WATER TEMPERATURE: 140 °F (60 °C)
=========================================
Note that this pump can be operated at 115 volts or 230 volts (A/C) It may have come wired for 230 volt use from the vendor.

Make sure the pump is piped correctly.


There should be a wiring diagram either on the pump or in the literature so you can check to see how the pump is wired.

MAKE SURE
you have the pump wired for 115 volt use in your case. Also make sure the wire size is #12 awg for the power wiring.
Make sure all connections are tight. If you have an amprobe (an instrument that measures electric current) you can check to see how many amps the pump is pulling when it runs.

You said your old pump was 1 HP. This Flotec pump is 3/4 horse so there could be some pump performance loss depending on the well depth and length of the piping runs.

Here's the link to the website for the pump. There are additional resources available on the website:

On the fp3222-11 pump the yellow has a 115v reading as well as the red and black legs is this correct?


You didn't indicate where you were referencing your voltage readings. If to ground, then yes. You should see 220v between red and black leads.

Here is a link to the manual for your pump:
http://www.flotecpump.com/pdf/FP777(5-9-07).PDF
Notice the part that states:
3 wire pumps will not operate without submersible motor control;
attempting to do so will burn out motor

Here is another manual for different brand with better troubleshooting:

1 Answer

On the fp3222-11 well pump it said it needs 230v, is that on both hot leads, that each lead has to have 230v reading?


That means when you check your supply voltage it will be 230V from hot to hot.(L1-to L2) You would still read 115V to neutral on each leg.

Low water flow


sounds like air is trapped in the system somewhere. that is why any pump will surge. check the lines going in to make sure it isn't sucking air somewhere along the way and make sure the discharge line is clear so it can pump out fully.
