Connecting the power cord to a Hayward pool pump is part of the wiring process. When your old pump needs to be replaced a new one will need to be installed. You can have this done by a professional installer or you can install it yourself. However, the electrical wiring needs to be done correctly based on the voltage that is required for your model of Hayward pump.
Determine the voltage of the wiring for your pool pump. This can be 115 to 120 volts, depending on the model of pool pump.
Turn off the breaker for the pool pump, located at the circuit panel.
Remove the cover from the pool pump by loosening the screws. This exposes the pump's electrical connectors.
Attach the PVC pipe to the outside of the pump for the electrical wiring. Feed the electrical wire from the box to the pool pump.
Remove 1 1/2 inches of the electrical wire's insulation with the wire strippers. Strip 1/2 inch of insulation from the black, white and green colored wires.
Attach the white wire to the terminal screw labeled "L1" by using the screwdriver. Attach the black wire to the terminal screw labeled "L2." Attach the green ground wire to the green "GRD" screw.
Place the cover back on the pool pump and tighten the screws. Bond the pool pump to the pool with the copper wire.
