You can run a wire from one of the outdoor outlets. 110, 115, and 120 volt circuits are pretty much interchangeable. An appliance rated for one of these will work fine on any of them. You may need to check the pump's amperage to be sure it isn't greater than the capacity of the circuit breaker.

You need to check the NEC concerning pool pumps. The pump must be GFCI protected. A licensed electrician should be consulted to ensure this pool system is done correctly and for the safety of people using the pool.

You should have no problem as long as the pug fits into the outlet. Common house hold voltages range up to 120V.


Can you plug a 115V appliance into a 110V outlet?

Yes you can safely do this. Most appliances that are marked 115 volts will operate on outlet between 110 and 120 volts safely.


How do you make 110v outlet to 120v outlet?

In the US, standard household receptacles are 120V, but historically they used to be called 110V. So the two are the same thing - at least in the US. Depending on the age of the electrical device the nameplate may say: 110v 115v 117v 120v and they all are referring to a standard household receptacle.

Can you plug a 115V appliance into a 120V outlet?

For residential service 110V, 115V, 117V, 120V, and 125V are all functionally the same. Electric companies have been slowly increasing the line voltage over the last 100 years to cope with increased loads. That is where these different voltages come from. The tolerance is generally +/-10%. That's +/- 11.5 volts in this case. So, a 115VAC appliance will run between 103.5 and 126.5VAC. The short answer is yes. 110V appliances can work with up to 130V without being burnt, additionally, 220V appliances can work with up to 240V without being burnt.

What's wrong with a 240V outlet that tests at 277V?

What's the reading at the service panel? What do regular 115V outlets read at? What kind of meter are you using? Chances are you have 480/277V 3 phase power to this building. Whoever wired the outlet used a 277V feed, possibly because 240V was not avaliable. You should call an electrician, repair of this problem may involve instalation of a transformer.


Can you plug 120 volt appliances into 110 volt outlet?

110 Volt is the nominal standard used in homes. Appliances are rated at 120 volts as a safety measure, as the voltage can fluctuate between 110v and 115v. Appliances rated in this manner will require voltages higher than 120v in order to sustain damage. Might call it a safety net for appliances.


What happens when 110 volt equipment is plugged into a 120 volt source?

It is not uncommon to find ratings on appliances of 110v,115v,120v,125v depending on where it was manufactured. Typically these ratings allow a tolerance of + or- 10%, meaning an appliance with a 110v rating may be plugged into a source that provides between 99v and 121v.
