3 phase vs 1 phase pump

I plan to purchase the 25GS30 but single phase 230 power only

Question:
Is the 3phase motor choice enough more efficient to warrant the cost of the converter to 3 phase power that you sell?

Or should i buy the single phase 3 wire unit?

What is the running amp rating of each?

3HP 230 volt single phase running amps is approximately 12 to 18 amps. 3HP three phase running amps is approximately 8 to 10 amps. I have never had any luck with phase converters, so , it would be my opinion to stay with the single phase application.
