I upgraded to stainless, so I'm getting rid of 6 of these 1.5bbl plastic conicals. They are of
the 55 gallon, full drain type and outfitted as follows: - 1-1/2" MPT x 1-1/2" TC in bottom

I've been planning pretty much this exact build out myself and just stumbled on this thread.
Some good ideas for improvement on my design! Any chance you could elaborate a bit on the
fittings you used...

I think you are going to have to heat still. Just ballpark, a doubling of volume increases
surface area 2^(2/3) = 1.58. Since heat loss is related to surface area and heat generation is
related to vol...

Thanks guys. I figured that was the case, but I wanted to check before I potentially ruined
such an expensive breaker. I'm concerned about the neatness of it only because I'm going to put
all my relay...
Posted in thread: Purpose of Pigtail on a GFCI Breaker? on 02-18-2012 at 03:47 PM
I'm curious if anyone knows if there's a specific reason why the neutral connection of a GFCI
breaker is always coiled. I'd like to straighten the one I have out for cleaner routing, but I
wanted to m...
