    110/120 GFCI receptacles are wired to a single pole breaker.Brew on :mug:So just wire the
    outlet,Black; hotWhite; neutralBare/green; groundThen connect black to the 20amp spare breaker
    and white to ne...

    So can I wire a 110v 20amp two receptacle gfci to a single pole 20amp breaker? Or does it need
    to be 20amp two pole 220v?

    So looking over everything, it looks like the cost would be pretty great in price to do and
    switch all this over. I am wondering, I have a 2000watt element and a 1500 watt element. As
    stated the 2000 ...

    Perhaps I'm lost. So if I kept all my wiring the way it is but switch out my 20amp 120v plugs
    to say a 240v dryer plug and outlet then install a 30amp gfi outlet/breaker, I could run a 4500
    watt eleme...

    If the OP reduced to a 4500w element, could the 12-3 wire remain?Just a thought.Depends on your
    batch size goals, 4500 is still plenty of heat for 5 gal, and sufficient but a little slower
    for 10 galS...

    So I would not need 10/3 wire at all? Just put a 240v plug on the end instead of the 120v 20amp
    plug I currently have?

    No. The PID signals that control the SSR are only a few milliamps. You can use very fine wire
    for this (but less than 20AWG gets harder to handle.) The AC power to the PID is also very low
    current (le...

    You should really add a 30A DPST switch to give you positive power control. SSR's tend to fail
    in the closed (on) condition. You can use something as simple as a Leviton 3032 "light" switch.
    The follo...
