well, for you guys it is. To say I'm not electrical is an over statement...
I want to 'insert' an off/on switch before an existing outlet. [Just so you know, it is to toggle a March pump.]
I think I understand that I want to actually insert the switch on the hot leg leaving the common in place??? Or, does it matter if I connect (insert the toggle switch to either side?
So, which is the hot leg? Does it normally connect to the 'larger' side of the three-prong? Or, do I need to connect the electronic device and plug in a multimeter to get (what?) reading to be sure I'm inserting my toggle switch on the correct leg?
Thanks for your help!
