You don't need to bend an element it should goes through nut easily.

Even 24awg wire is OK for PID wiring.
Posted in thread: One 220v or two 110v? on 09-04-2014 at 10:25 PM
[*]240V uses 1/4th the current to achieve the same wattage at the element. It's not true. To
get the same wattage at 240V you need a half of current in comparison to 120V

Would the Kit from Still Dragon work in that case of 120v?Sure it will. The one issue -
potentiometer will work only a half way. On a first half turn (starting from the minimum) you
will have no outpu...

Can the same setup be used for the 10 gallon 120v Boilcoil? I assume I can always upgrade to a

My PID failed and will no longer shut off the element when the temp is reached. I have ordered
a new PID to replace the bad one. Are you sure about PID failure? More likely you have a failed

Some temperature probes are not really water tight. So some omount of liquid can get in IDE.
And its causing wrong temperature reading.

I'd still recommend to spend a few more dolalrs and buy 22 or 18AWG wire. It saves you a lots
of wiring efforts.
