### Resolved Question:

Above is the wiring diagram. I need help simply breaking this down. I have Black, white, ground in coming from 220V breaker, I have black, white, ground incoming from pool pump, and I have red, white, ground incoming from Salt Water converter.

Can you simply break this down and tell me what wires go where? I'm very confused. Thank you

Please tell me which wire goes to "L", "1", "X" and "2". Thanks for your help
Expert:  Mike G. replied 4 years ago.
Are both the pump and the salt water converter 240V?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
The pump is. How can I tell if the salt water converter is?
Expert:  Mike G. replied 4 years ago.
Everything electrical has a nameplate on it. Look for it close to where the wiring enters the unit.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
it says 240/120V on the underside. Does that mean it can be either or?
Expert:  Mike G. replied 4 years ago.
If both accessories are 240V then the connects are as follows
• L1= Black Feed Wire
• 1 = White Feed Wire
• X = Black (pump) and Red (salt water)
• 2 = White (pump) and White (salt water)
Your last post said the salt water unit was 120/240V. You don't have a Neutral from the panel for 120V, so you need to verify that the wiring in that unit is for 240V before energizing it.

If I don't have a neutral from the panel...Does that mean it is NOT wired for 240V?
Expert:  Mike G. replied 4 years ago.
You said the the panel wiring was on a 240V breaker. That means the White was used for a hot wire, which is OK. It should have been identified as such. When you terminate the wires mark the Whites with black tape or a Magic Marker to indicate they are not Neutrals.
