    Default Current draw on 3/4 HP pump?

    I have a 3/4 HP-12 GPM 230 Volt 2-wire Myers Predator pump running against approximately 150 ft of head. I'm reading approximately 6 amps current draw with my clamp-on. Does this sound right? Someone had mentioned a while ago on another forum that this seems high, noting that 1 HP is about 750W.

    7.8 Amps is typical.
