So what are you asking? For every wire, detail and splice???

What is your level of expertise?

Sounds like you need professional help. This is not a DIY project. It is dangerous and your life and other lives are at stake. Call a professional.

I agree with JV. This is absolutely in your best interest to have it done correctly. There is MUCH more to a pool that making the pump work.
