I am going to try to wire a supply line for a submersible well pump. I
talked to the contract who will be installing the well and he said the pump
will need 220V. He also said that I should use12/2 romex.
I was under the impression that it is either 120V or 240V, the only
difference between the two is that the 240 had 2 120V hot wires going into
it. Is this the case, or is a 240 and a 220 the same thing? Also, will one
12/2 romex cable be enough? I've read that you cannot run romex in a pvc
conduit. I want to run it underground for about a 10-15 foot run, so what
should I use? Thanks in advance for all your help.
