most pumps come with a second leg 230v option but there is really no reason to wire them for 230v. as the previous posters stated if this is something you are at all unsure about....dont do it....call a professional otherwise you run the risk of personal harm and at the very least burning up alot of money on a new pump and pump relay once your have fried the first set.

Dude, you don't play guessing games when it comes to this stuff. Find the manufacturer's instructions for the relay, which should also inform you what it is rated for.
