Most well pumps I ever put in are 240 volt.

wire


If you know what breaker/ fuse it goes to youcould find out if it is 240. If it goes to two fuses or two breakers with the handles connected it would most likely be 240 volt if only one breker or fuse it is most likely 120 volt. You could also test it with a volt meeter.
