3 phase or 3 wire? I seriously doubt that you could get 3 phase power hooked up to a residence especially a double wide even if it happened to be available in the area. This is a completely different hook-up than residential power and is for commercial industrial type buildings and heavy power use shops.

it does have 3 phases, right now it is starting to go bad, it kicks from the third phase to the 1st right after switching to the third, there's somthing going bad in it, and will need replacing soon. around here our power is hooked up the same as a regular house, just there is a pole that the wire is hooked to from the road pole, rather than right to the house, it then runs under ground to the house. is there any other way to wire 3 phase not needing regular 3 phase hookups. this was put in professionally in 1987 so the fire codes probably arn't what they were back then making anything like this a no no.

I assumed the pump was hooked to your house wiring and I just couldn't imagine a residence wired for 3 phase power. What you have still sounds a bit strange to me but then maybe it is a common set-up.

I really like this Motor Guard filter. It has an element like a toilet paper

I installed it behind my regular trap and only use that line for painting, a
seperate line off of the trap is for air tools and everything else.
