I'm not and electrician, but I don't see any issue wiring it either way. Perhaps PJ has a
preference, but I like seeing the contactor first. This way the SSR or SSVR does not always
have voltage conne...

I echo the comments to have a licensed electrician review your work or complete your build.
FWIW, I am not an electrician. I was able to build the ebrewsupply 120V eRIMs build myself
using basic tools...

You want the 2NO switches. That means that both poles of the switch are normally open. The 1NO
1NC switches have one circuit that is completed when the switch is in the off position and one
switch is ...

The switch on the pump is a single throw double pole (STDP). The others are shown as single

*Not an electrician*You don't need a GFCI outlet/receptacle. I'd swap out your 30 amp breaker
for a 30 amp GFCI breaker. I'm not sure they make GFCI receptacles rated at 30 amp 240V. The
big thing her...

I'm not sure you'll find contactors at your local Home Depot. You can get them from Auber,
Amazon, or a number of other places. I wouldn't endorse any specific vendor. You need to make
sure that it is...

I'd like to get this started in the next week or two. Can anyone explain why some people have
random fuses between here and there? Also, what is the "coil" in the wiring diagram? A
