Question about Energizer Rechargable Battery with Charger
Dont know how the wires go back. have red, black and ground from motor. have red, black, white and ground coming from house. need to go into cfci duplex receptacle and on/ off flip switch.
First and foremost, you need to check the Motor's voltage requirements, and match it to the voltage of the GFI you have connected to the House current.
The best way to do this is to use a volt meter at the GFI receptacle. Although it's likely the voltage at your GFI receptacle is 120Volts AC, you shouldn't guess on this. If you know what circuit breaker this GFI is using to get power.... you may be able to determine the GFI's voltage if you know how to distinquish between a single pole breaker and a two pole breaker (120Volts is derived from a sigle pole breaker, 240volts from a two pole breaker-which is twice the size of a single pole breaker).
Now the Motor: Most common Pool Motors are dual winding motors, on which, the voltage requirement could be changed to match the voltage supplied. On such a motor, there's a compartment where the cord is attached. Within this compartment, there's a configuration of screws or terminal points, and a related schematic which depicts the proper connections for each of the voltage options. By following these schematics, you will know how to connect the motor based on the available voltage supplied by your GFI protected receptacle.

I assume you mean a gfci recepticle? If this is the case you need to take the black wire from the house and pigtail it to go to both the recepticle (Black / Line) and one line side screw of the switch. The white wire from the house goes directly to the line/white side of the recepticle. Also pigtail the ground to go to the green screw on the recepticle, the green screw on the switch, the green wire from the motor, and the ground screw on whatever box you're using. When you purchase the switch make sure you get a two pole switch rated for at least the amperage of the motor. The red wire from the house and the black wire from the pigtailed black will go to the two line side screws of that switch. The red and black from the motor will go to the two screws on the load side of that switch. Make sure to ground everything properly being so close to water. The cover needs to be sealed securely and I recommend the cover that has the lever to activate the switch as opposed to the little door over the switch handle. Also make sure the two breakers supplying those two circuits have a handle that turns them both off at the same time.
