Electrical problem with pump

Postby kalislife » Fri 10 Jan, 2014 21:42

I have a pool with two motors; 1) controls the skimmer 2) controls the waterfall feature.

I replaced the waterfall pump, and now it won't work. I had someone take a quick peek at it when they were installing my ceiling fan. He did a quick test and bypassed the waterfall motor to the skimmer and it worked. The electrician mentioned that the red wire (hooked up to the waterfall pump) was bad and a new red wire would have to be installed (underground). I didn't see what he did to bypass it to have the waterfall at the same time as the skimmer, but for a temporary fix I would like to do this (until I can afford to have new wire ran).

Right to left photos:

Far right controls the skimmer
Middle is the waterfall
Far left is the timer box??


I did notice inside the box on the left there are two red wires that are capped off (nothing attached). I am not sure if this is extra wiring the electrician added to test, or ???


Any help would be extremely appreciated!
