That's pretty expensive. I bought the SquareD equivalent for about half, but it was used.

Are you certain it will fit in your breaker box (don't mean to offend, but perhaps you didn't know that breaker boxes are all different).

A lot of us are using that $50 spa panel. PJ has a couple wiring diagrams showing how to hook it up.
