Hi everyone,

First time post here.  I just purchased the Pureline PL7707 SWG; it arrived yesterday.  I'm planning the install and I'm curious if I have enough electricity outside.

I have a single speed pump - Hayward Max-Flo 1.5hp.  The pump states (on the label) amps 16.5 (max)/9.2-8.5.  

I've read the Pureline uses between 2-8amps when energized.  

I have a single gang plug, on a 20amp breaker by itself.  No other items on the circuit.

I think I have enough to run both safely, but I'm probably near the limit.  

What do you all think?  Thanks!

Will

There is a chance that the breaker will trip from time to time. If possible, I would bump it up to a 30 amp breaker.
