I currently have a pool pump right next to my back door. I'm in the process of moving it to a more distant spot so it's not so visible. I opened up the service panel and was confused by what I saw. I have two 20 amp breakers, one with a black wire, the other with a white wire marked with red tape (marking it as hot). Both are part of a 10-2 sheathed electrical cable running to the pump (along with the ground). I don't see any indication of a white/neutral line.
The pool pump is a 230/115 volt pump (1 HP).
Is this wired wrong, or have I missed something?
