Well, I could be wrong, the pump has two hots and a neutral plus ground if I’m not mistaken. I’ll try and find a photo of the generator to post.You sure the generator is three phase? It would be unusual to find one that size for residential use. But, you could power the pump just fine with a three phase generator.
That's a 4 wire pump that is single phase as it's commonly called. Your generator will have a 220v outlet most likely. Is this for a temporary emergency hook up during a power failure or a permanent hookup to the home that includes the water well?Well, I could be wrong, the pump has two hots and a neutral plus ground if I’m not mistaken.

I have a champion 9,200 running watts generator and a transfer switch on my breaker. I can run my whole house minus the heater when I need to. That sucker is amazing. It was $999 at Lowe’s and $200 to have the switch installed. And I have a gen tent that I put on the generator when it rains. I don’t have a covered area to put it under. I could buy a longer cord then I could put it on the back porch. That is the route I would go.[/QUOTE
$200.00 isn’t that bad of a price to pay an electrician
Like most stores that supply to contractors/mechanics they have pricing that applies to them and different prices that apply to the general public.I am on the road now and can’t post a photo of the generator but what I’m trying to do is buy the material I will be needing to have an electrician do the dirty work. Does that sound feasible? Sometimes they won’t do the work unless “they” supply all the parts.
The capacitor converters are fairly cheap. A 14" saw would be awesome on 6X6 and so on.
