I have searched the forums for an answer and haven't seen a definitive answer to my question. I have built an E-HERMS system and am getting ready to provide power to the system. It is a 30 amp system with 5500watt elements, using only one at a time. The problem I have is I cannot find a 30amp GFCI breaker for my breaker box. All stores are out of stock and online as well.
Can I use a standard 30 amp double pole breaker at the breaker box, run the cables to a spa panel with a 50 amp GFCI breaker in it, and plug my control panel into the spa panel as seen in other posts? The spa panel will serve as the GFCI only.
Is this safe? I need help from the electricians on here. I don't want to burn my house down.
I forgot to mention my brewery is to be used outside. I don't have room inside my house for the brewery. If that makes any difference.
