    I would suggest rewiring it. I wouldn't bother with an outlet.Suppose that is the easiest
    route. Just need a little longer cord afterall.There are lots of options, from cheap to not
    cheap :)Cheapest w...

    You are pretty close to this: may not have some of the switches (Element Power, E-Stop, PID
    Power) but you can get the general idea just by following the wires.Everything inside there
    looks very clea...

    No I mean in the RIMS tube itself If you could get one to fit. I Don't see any reason why the
    flow sensor you linked wont work. It is all low voltage so it looks like you would need a
    Voltage regulato...

    I wouldn't build a RIMS without one! Simple, CHEAP and effective. just a simple float switch
    for $15 would do it.So basically all I need is the meter, third down on this page - - and
    there is an eas...

    Thank you all for the insight.Hope the batch turns out man! Whatcha' gonna call it if it
    does?It's a BSDA and at this point is only about 2.5 weeks old, so very very young. I've tasted
    a recent sample...

    It would be more clean to use the integrated TC version
    https://www.brewhardware.com/product_p/etc.htm so you just attach the ground to the all in one
    deal.Looks like they are back in and you are righ...

    You want to make sure that the ground from that wire coming into the box is securely connected
    to any switches that have grounding screws, any SSRs that should be grounded on their bases,
    connected to...

    I would think even if it wasn't GFCI, the breaker on the box would still trip from pulling too
    much current to the equipment?!Either the circuit must have still been able to complete or
    something wasn...

    The element failed because it ran dry. Low density design or stainless sheath would not have
    prevented this. Basically the element sheath melts, any moisture that is introduced to the
    magnesium oxide ...

    The compromised element's "heating" wires, carrying 240V, were exposed to wort or water. That
    should have kicked in the GFCI! That's what those are for.Maybe the OP isn't using one?120V
    heating elemen...
