Hello. I have a 1/4 HP pump and I want to connect it to a UPS in case the currento in the house cuts off, I have 1 or 2 minutes to close a valve. I understand that if it is 1/4 hp it has around 200 watts. I know a induction motor has around 3 times the nominal power in the start, but since the UPS will be connected to the 220V socket there shoudn´t be any problem right? I mean, a 500watts UPS should be ok, right?
