Pond Pump Connections and GFCI Protection
[ad#block]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.
