The wiring you use should accommodate the full load of the circuit. If you have a 30 amp breaker or GFCI then 10 AWG is appropriate. If you have a 50 amp breaker then you need to use 6 AWG wire. The breaker protects the wiring and you don't want the wiring to be the "fuse".

Wire to feed the cooling fan transformer is connected to the PID switch so it will always be on when the PID is on.


Getting hard to tell what is what. Wiring to the pump switch done.


The PID wired up like I want. The alarm has a hot jumper going from #10 to #13. A jumper from #14 to #1 will make sure I can use the one alarm on the high and low perimeters.


The lid is done.


Lid organized and zip tied.


Inside the case done.


Case cleaned up and zip tied.


I have a question about how you have the alarm wired. First you show it wired with jumpers to use the alarm on high and low perimeters and then you show it wired differently on the next photo. Which way did you end up wiring the alarm? Is there a reason you removed the jumpers?

I have collected all the parts and am ready to wire it up. For some reason I can't see the pics anymore. Awesome build, and was going to use the pics as a reference with one of Pj diagrams. Have the pics been removed?

So sorry, I reorganized my Photobucket files and the web addresses are corrupted. I will fix A.S.A.P.

The only thing I have changed since the original build is I replaced the old sight glass with the new heavier version from BrewHardware and replaced the 1/2" hose barb (pickup tube) with a 5/8" hose barb. It has helped reduce the cavitation to almost zero.
After a year of use all is still working as it did from day one. I had considered making the sight glass outlet and the spigot outlet a mechanical (solder) connection but they have shown no sign of weakness or fatigue. The white silicone gaskets spread out to about twice their size.
I am still using the same original bag I made. The nylon voile is extremely tough to be so thin and frilly.
All in all everything is still going strong.

I'm punching holes in my basket right this second.. have you found the "every other hole" to work out well enough? Do you think fewer holes would work? More holes?

Cheers!

As many as you can get without significantly weakening the basket. Just every other hole until you get all the way around. You may have an odd section where the holes don't work out evenly but that won't matter. I will get a photo of mine when I get home. I went back and put more holes after the original fabrication.
