Electrical Question from Michael about 220 Volt Wiring Diagram

Question: Is there any advantage to wiring a fractional horsepower pool pump at 240 volts compared to 120 volts?
Thanks for your electrical question Michael. The advantage would be aÂ much faster start and if the rest of the equipment requires 240 volt then it may be easier to wire all the equipment for 240 volt just to keep the controls straight forward.

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.
