If there is a little box on it that is doing the conversion and it will drop the HP down to 3 when run in single phase, that sounds like a static converter. It will work just fine. You get a little less power because the motor actually runs on single phase after start up. It can be harder on the motor, but if you’re not running it all day long it shouldn’t make a difference. A static phase converter costs about $100, and if it’s already wired up, all you have you do is plug it into a 220v outlet.
