pool pump motor

I have an above ground pool, and the pump motor just died out. It had HP1.0, RPM 3450, V 115, A 11.9, HZ 60, FR 56Z mfg by A.O. SMITH.
My dad gave me a pump motor that he purchased four months ago, and it has HP1-1/8, V 230, RPM 3450/1725, A 6.0/1.8, HZ 60, FR 56Z mfg by GE motors.
I have an input of 120V, of course, there is not enough voltage for the 230 V motor. What is the best solution?

Did you look at that motor real good. A lot of the 220 motors can be changed over to run on 110 volts. look at the name plate on it. That motor would draw 12 amps if it will go to 110 for you. ED

what Ed said was correct your dad gave you a 2 speed motor, if there is a possibility that you could run 220v 20 A service to that motor you could save half the $ in electricity you would pay running it 110 v
