I am replacing my swimming pool pump after 25 years here in

This answer was rated:

I am replacing my swimming pool pump after 25 years here in France. It is tri phase and the wire colours are old, blue (was the earth on old pump) black, black and brown. Can you advise on connection please. Also how can I see the way the pump is rotating in the direction of the arrow as it is enclosed?
Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries ~ firstly establish which is the earth wire and connect it, the remaining wires (should be three) are now connected to the existing phase wire connections, the direction of travel of the motor can be made by reversing the motor phase connections. ie if you have connected it ~ 1 2 3 ~ and the direction of travel is wrong then connect it ~ 1 3 2 and the motor will run in the other direction.
