    Thanks for all the responses. I decided to try the generic/non branded 50l conical. The current
    price is double what it was yesterday for some reason. I paid $180 out of pocket for it with
    prime shipp...

    Corn?Yeah I was thinking the same thing.. also explains the drive to do it so cheaply.

    Bobby I pulled my topsflo pump out of storage and played with it the other night. I noticed
    that when I adjusted the voltage to the pump from 24v down to 12v slowly and watched my flow

    I use the 300 arbor fabrication 6x14 basket (the ones that started it all) they recommended the

    It was a Duda B3-23A 20 plate chiller. I used a pre-filter and still struggled. Plus, total
    PITA to clean. Of course my experience differs from others but it is what it is. Loving the
    good old immersi...

    I have about $325 in amazon dollars left over from the holidays. I found 2 decent looking
    conicals that would be pretty cheap out of pocket for me.Has anyone had any experience with
    these? For the pri...

    Just eBay'd my plate chiller. Good riddance! Ugh... such a PITA! There's two types of plate
    chiller users; those who lie about never having clogs and those who eBay their plate
    chillers.Curious what m...

    I haven't recently been pre-filtering. I have tried the Brewershardware filter, but it plugs
    too so no net benefit. I'll give the scrubby a shot. But to go back to my question, are all
    plate chillers ...

    I hate to be the one to burst your bubble here, and I truly hope you can prove me wrong and be
    successful at whatever you're doing. But there simply isn't a GOOD and cheap way to do these
    things. If t...

    Putting in a sub panel is expensive overkill. Unless you do laundry and bake cakes while you
    brew, you can share one/both of those. Many ways to do can be more complicated than
    that.... My ele...

I have another PID/SSR compatibility problem. Your insights have been very good, but the spec sheets aren't very detailed.

I have a MYPIN TA4-SSR pid, a lyhpccom:ruike electronics industry "SSR-40D" ssr, and a QCA-302 240V//24v-controlled mechaical hvac relay.

I don't get the SSR to control the mechanical relay. A transformer at 24V switches it ok.

I suspect the PID isn't pushing out 24V AC to event the mechanical relay.

Any advice on matching PID/SSR/MECHANICAL ?
