Here is my single Cascade plant - 3rd year plant, looking good with sidearms sprouting all over
the top. This pic is with the trellis lowered to train the long ends horizontally. here's a
full shot. ...
Posted in thread: Questions about March Pumps answered by the Factory! on 05-19-2014 at 12:46 PM
The 809-HS is rated to draw 1.4 amps according to the specs. Is that the maximum or continuous
duty? What size fuse would you recommend when the pump is connected through a switch in a
control panel? ...

The Ranco will handle 16A full load at 120V and 8A at 240V. The 5500W element draws 23A at
240V, so I don't think the Ranco is a viable option for controlling an element directly.

looks like you have heavy gauge wire going between the elements and the contactors, you
probably should have heavy gauge wire between the contactors and the SSR.also, there are two
red lines coming ou...

If you have a 40A SSR, a ~23A element, and a 25A CB, I think you are good, but I cannot
guarantee that... I know I blew two without a CB, and none since with a 30A one... I would
think it would take a...

I think your wiring looks good, I would add a 30 A fuse/CB to each leg to protect SSR in case
of internally shorted element (I saw the smoke 2x in a row!) if you already have one in the
breaker box, y...

what software did you use to make this? I'm working out something similar and am tired of
drawing w/ powerpoint.thanks!I tried a bunch of different open source tools (I'm on Linux), but
settled on Dia...
