Extension cords with pumps?

That's sad that you can't even post on a pool forum without some d-bag making a mean comment. People need to get a life! Hope you had luck with the extension cord issue. That's what I'm trying to figure out for my pool.

wow, what a bunch of asshats in here! If you dont want to help someone, just dont respond.

The fact that a couple of you take time out of your life to leave stupid jackass comments just to be a jerk or make yourself feel bigger or better than you really are says a lot more about YOU than the people you are calling names! I've never even posted here but was on a search for information. Just can't believe people think it's ok to call other people names ... we dont put up with that kinda sh*t in Boston!

Unless you're 12 and your a bully because mommy didn't teach you compassion or manners, you have no excuse for being a jerk. Life's hard enough without having to deal with adult bullies who need to put others down on the internet to feel better about themselves!

14/3 means 14 AWG and 3 conductions/prongs most extension cord packaging lists the amps that the cord is rated for as well so the email was correct. They were not stating that the 14 in 14/3 meant the amps. They were talking about the amp rating separately. If the description does not have the amp rating listed you can go by the AWG the Lower the AWG the thicker the wire and the higher the capacity. You can also look up this information and get a more detailed explanation at Home Depot's website. The perks of doing so are you don't have to deal with ignorant people that call you names for posting what a company sent to you. They generally have people who review and delete comments posted by people with such low IQ's who feel the need to degrade others. :D

I came on here to see if there was a solution for the cord on my pool pump being too short. The first pump I had my husband swapped the 6 ft cord that came with it for a longer cord. The cord had 8 guage wire so it was not too small. Still the motor only lasted 1 year. I am thinking it may actually be better to just use a heavy duty extension cord rather than change the wires. I was shocked to find the name calling on what is supposed to be a help site. Not everyone is aware that a smaller number means a larger guage wire, apparantly the pool company was not even aware of this as the person stated he simply copied and pasted the email he recieved. The fact that you felt the need to call him a dumb ass proves you should not be on this site. I admire his restraint because had that comment been directed at me I would not have been so polite. No doubt there was a point in your life when someone told you this little tid bit of information and most likely they did not call you names for not knowing. I do however suggest you refrain from asking questions in the future as what goes around comes around and I would hate to see you get your feelings hurt.
