Picture please. I haven't paid attention to the Pentair or Centripro motors, which should be the same. I am used to one hole in the bottom of the motor. There is a diaphragm under the end cap and the hole lets it see downhole pressure so it can equalize the pressure in the motor and not blow out the seal.
