If I have a 3-wire pump, where would I connect the wires for the outlet inside the pressure switch so that the outlet only has power when the pump is on or would I be better off wiring it to the control box?
I had the pump hooked directly up to the pressure switch but I would prefer to have it hooked to an outlet and I prefer not to buy a flow switch.
Here is a diagram for what I am trying to do but I am not sure which wire is which in the diagram. http://www.cleanwaterstore.com/techn...or_startup.pdf

All of the needed info is in the PDF file.
It would connect to the same output / switched connections on the pressure switch as your Well Pump.
If you do not understand the info in your PDF file then you may want a professional to help you.
Be careful playing with electric.
I've got the outlet hooked up. The chemical pump works only when the well pump is on but the power alternates on and off randomly for the chemical pump. Any idea what might be causing this? When I hook the pump up to a normal outlet, it is always on as it should be.
You could have made the 115 volt pump work. Just needed one wire to the pressure switch and the other to ground.
Doesn't the neutral go to the ground bar? Or am I mistaken?
