Pond Pump Connections and GFCI Protection
Question: I have a VERSA Gold Series, Model # G210AG20 – I need wire color code for the wiring.
This electrical question came from: Joe, a Property Manager from Houston, TX
Thanks for your electrical question Joe.
Joe, this is a straight forward 120 volt pond pump that requires a 120 volt GFCI protected weather proof power source. The pump comes with a cord and a plug, however if your pump did not come with a plug then the black is the incoming power connection, the white is neutral and the green is the ground wire. These colors are standard with the exception of the ground which may be a bare copper wire that is provided with the incoming GFCI power.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
