tripping is an indication of
motor overloading as a result
of operating the pump at low
heads (low discharge restric-
tion), excessively high or low
voltage, inadequate wiring,
pumping too hot a liquid,
incorrect motor connections,
or a defective motor or pump.

3. This equipment is only for use

on 115 volt (single-phase) and
is equipped with an approved
3-conductor cord and 3-prong,
grounding-type plug.

4. To reduce the risk of electric

shock, the unit should be
plugged directly into a properly
installed and grounded 3-prong
grounding-type receptacle. The
green (or green and yellow)
conductor in the cord is the
grounding wire. The motor
must be securely and adequately
grounded for your protection
against shock hazards! Never
connect the green (or green and
yellow) wire to a live terminal!

5. Where a 2-prong wall receptacle

is encountered, it must be
replaced with a properly
grounded 3-prong receptacle
installed in accordance with
the National Electrical Code
and local codes and ordinances.

6. To ensure a proper ground, the

grounding means must be tested
by a qualified electrician. Use
only 3-wire extension cords
that have 3-prong, grounding-
type plugs and receptacles that
accept the equipment plug.

make sure wire is of adequate
size to minimize voltage drop
at the motor.
