The pool had a bunch of wiring for the old school pool pump (one speed) as well as another pump for the roof solar panels, lights timers, outlet and s uch. I like to clean things up so I took everything apart. The only things that I would like to keep working would be the pool pump and the outlet. Th e pool pump comes with a very handy timer feature so I don't need another t imer, etc. Anyway, so here are my questions:
The electrical line comes with the following copper wire coatings: 1 green, 1 red, 1 white, 4 black (I can't tell if any of these is different from the others) Here is a picture of the line: https://drive.google.com/open?id zEC_oKO DULNcHlWaU55cjhVQ1E
And here is a picture of my panel: https://drive.google.com/open?id zEC _oKODULNNWM3Ty1PaTcyZUk
Question 1. I believe that the wiring should be very simple since the terminals in the pool pump only use green/ground and two others to make up 220V. I plan on t urning on the power and VERY CAREFULLY test voltage between the red cable a nd the black ones and go with the one that gives me closest to 220V. From t he panel to this setup we are talking at least 150 ft so I want to have as good a line as possible. Why are there four black cables in the line? Do yo u see any issues with my approach?
Question 2. Page 10/36 of the pool pump reads '230 VAC single phase' (see below). If yo u look at the panel picture isn't it true that there are two phases here th at when used together give 220V? This pump was working beautifully for the past year going through all of the connections (2 very old school switches and an electrical box that was used as a timer for the pump) so it should w ork well if I make the connections correctly.

Question 3. For the outlet I believe that I can use any of the remaining three black ca bles, the neutral/white cable and ground. The remaining black cables will b e capped and well insulated with electrical tape on top.
I'm pretty sure that my approach should work but I might as well float my p lans in case anyone has any suggestions. Thank you very much.
