Agree that losses make a difference. That can be compensated for with insulation.

Is your math right or is that a typo? 3250w-500w=2750w.

2000w/120v=16.67amps

You'll need a 20amp GFCI breaker/wiring/outlet to accomplish your goal.

So long as all of your components are rated for 20 amps you'll be fine.

Try Gateway Electronics. They have lots of switches and lights. Occasionally they'll have SSRs of the proper amperage. I also got my heat sinks there.

I don't have a main power switch in my panel. I have chosen to use the breaker as the main on/off since the power cord to the panel is hardwired into the GFCI breaker.

I've use the method of dissolving it in a cup of hot wort first, then toss it into the boil. It's possible the Irish moss did not completely dissolve and some ended up in your drain.

Some do, but like Kal, I have a larger fuse protecting all of the PIDs. It's a modest price of protection for the more expensive items.
