The earth filter is in need of a good cleaning. You may even need to acid wash it. Welcome to the high-maintenance draw-backs of a DE filter! Once cleared your system should go back to operating normally.

The bi-metal motor overheat protection switch is internal and it is activating probably with or without the ground fault interrupt they prevent electrocution and other devastation, do not modify anything. Do not hesitate, seek a very experienced pool electrician, NOW.

Wiring schematic for MTB217 cooper b line


I would suggest taking a closer look at the motor name plate. I am not familiar with a 120/240 three phase service. When I checked the web it shows: Voltage 115/230 (that is single phase), Max Amps 115 Volts = 19.2 Max Amps 230 Volts = 9.6 , Single Speed, Square Flange, RPM = 3450, Threaded Shaft, Frame = 48Y Used on the following models: Sta-Rite Max-E-Glas, Max-E-Glas II, Dura-Glas, Dura-Glas II, Dyna-Glas, Dyna-Max Pentair Whisperflow, Pinnacle and Anthony AR2 Series. You should also show what voltage you are connected to.

Wiring for timer


T101P3 is ordinary 120Volt T101 mechanism inside a beige plastic box.
Rated 40 amp.
Three terminals A 1 2
Very small white wires that power the WG1570 clock motor are connected to terminals A and 1.

White neutral wire from breaker box connects to terminal A
Black Hot wire from breaker connects to terminal 1.
This will power the clock motor, which will switch the timer on-off.
Green ground wire and bare copper wires connect to green ground screw.

115volt motor should have 2 wires.
Connect white wire to terminal A
Connect black wire to terminal B

How many kilowatts per hour does the Krystal Clear Model 635T filter pump use?


The simple answer is not many. I don't think your pump is that hungry to use kilowattS per hour... lets see "Kilo" is one thousand. At this site you will find the several formula for getting to your answer. Ohm's Law applies ... http://www.powerstream.com/Amps-Watts.htm

I am presuming your pump is 115 Volts and it probably plugs into a 15 amp circuit. IF IT USES 15 amps (I doubt it uses the entire value) Volts X Amps = Watts or 1725 watts or about 1.7 kilowatt. I couldn't find the amp rating for your particular model pump. I think it probably operates near 6 to 8 amps @ 115 Volts AC. If your pump runs at 6 amps that is 690 watts, 8 is 920 and 10 would be 1150. There are other factors that determine the actual amount of power consumed - load will increase the use - partially clogged filter would be an example of increased load, age of the pump could be another factor.

Here is another nifty place to convert: http://www.supercircuits.com/resources/tools/Volts-Watts-Amps-Converter

Here is a rule of thumb: If a device can run on two different voltages, the higher the voltage, the lower the amps. For example 115 volt @ 12 amps would use 1380 watts. The same device running at 230 volts would run at 6 amps and use 1380. This is the correct math answer. However, in actual use, the device would run slightly more efficient (use fewer watts). Electricians and science teachers and math teachers will all tell you different stories depending on their discipline. Heavy use devices do run more efficiently at the higher voltage (stove, dryer, furnace, hot water heater, well water pumps, swimming pool pumps)(Do not go looking for a 220 Volt pump for your above ground pool in an effort to save money. The higher voltage device will cost more and there are other practical and safety related issues in this kind of installation.)

If you lived in my area, (please don't say where you live) you would pay about 12 cents (US dollars) per kilowatt hour. If your pump runs at 10 amps 115 volts - that would be just over 12 cents per hour to run the pump.

I trust this answers your question? Thank you for your interest in FixYa.com

I replaced a one horse flotec sprinkler pump with a 1 1/2 horse pump. the one horse was wired at 115 volt/ 20 amp 12 gauge wire. the new pump is blowing the breaker.any suggestions ?


Your best solution would be to convert the circuit over to 230V assuming only the pump is on the breaker. Changing it to 230V will cut the amp draw in half and allow for the 12AWG wire to carry the load. You could increase the breaker rating but the wire is to small for the load and keeping it will lead to future problems if you leave the circuit as 115VAC.

Am I able to step this motor down to 115 ? Plate specifies 230V.only


it depends on how many motor wires you have available to work with .. IF the name plate says 220 volts , not 120 / 220 volts , then no. If there are only 2 wires for the motor, then NO

thoughts?

The motor itself should have a sticker which describes the wiring for 115. It is a small change involving a single wire moving from one pole to another inside the motor starter cap (the bump on the motor itself).
