Many replacement pumps do not come with a plug and cable. However, it is a very simple process to add one to a pump. In this guide, we explain how to wire a plug and cable to a pool or spa pump.
Note: We use a 115v spa pump in the guide but the general instructions can be applied to most pool and spa pumps. It is important to view the wiring diagram on your motor before connecting the wires from the cable. It is also important to understand the correct gauge wire to use. The amo draw of the motor will determine the wire gauge. Consult an electrician if you are unsure what gauge wire would be required for your pump.
