Pentair booster pump

I replaced my pentair booster pump over the weekend. The shaft is turning counterclockwise, when facing the pump intake. According to pentair this is backward, what did I do wrong?

They would turn clockwise looking from the motor end where you hook up the wires. Which makes yours correct. Single phase power which might read as 208-230/1/60 on your pump label can't be wired to run a pump backwards. If it was 3 phase, 208/3/60 on the label, then you can. Residential wiring is just about always single phase as far as I know. If 3 phase runs backwards you simply swap any 2 leads.
