So I've been through most of the wiring threads on HBT and have accumulated a lot of information -- thanks to everyone who contributed to those threads. I do have a couple of questions that I couldn't quite figure out and am hoping for some input. I'll be using the SYL-2352 PID, 20 Amp SSR, March pump, 1500 watt 120v heater element and 15 amp service. When all is on, I know that's pushing the 15 amps a little but I really don't have another option at this point. I'm also thinking about adding a .25 amp fast blow fuse to protect the PID, though please give me your thoughts on that. Have thought about a slow blow fuse for the pump but I think I'm going without that.
Question about the size of wire. I had planned on using 14 gauge wire for everything consistent with the 15 amp service. But I read in one of the threads that it's possible to use 22 gauge wire from power source to PID to SSR. Will that work? If so, what size wire would I run from the SSR to the element?
I'm also having trouble sourcing a fuse holder for the .25 amp fuse that will accept 14 gauge wire, which also suggests to me that I'm missing something.
Lastly, I'd like to add a light that lights up when the element is on. Looking at some diagrams, looks like the light just goes inline between the element and the SSR. Is that right?
Thanks for any help you can provide.
