    Default Thermsl overload on pump

    Can someone please tell me why would pump, wiring would have a, push
    button, thermal overload device, wired into one leg on a 240 volt. circuit,
    that feed power to the submersible pump, by way of pressure switch.
    Today is the 1st. time I seen such a device.

    NOTE: 20 amp. double pole circuit breaker. Two wire pump.

    Thanks.

    I have seen a few like that, but most are old pumps, or added by someone as an after thought.
    The biggest part of the two wire pumps have two, but I have seen them just one heater.

    Generally on a two wire pump, if the heater pops, its time for a new pump.
    For that reason, most pump manufacturers don't really offer that any more.
    They can still be bought, but are kinda pointless.
