I'm staring to put together a plan for my E-BIAB rig. My goal is to keep things pretty simple, no pumps, etc.

I have come up with the follow wiring diagram based on reading through other threads and would appreciate some input.

There is a chance that at some point I will add in a pump, I am wondering if it makes sense to add in a 120 plug for that now, or if it will be just as easy to add it later as now when/if I decide to add in a pump.

Please let me know if I'm missing anything, and sorry for the rough diagram...

It appears that if you are planning on using 10/4 wire you will be using an element that could draw a minimum of 15 amps. If that is the case, your switches cannot handle the amps. This means that you will also need to plan on adding contactors.

Also, I'd suggest that you implement the pump outlet up front. This will help a lot in your planning of the panel layout.

Thanks P-J

Guess I should just follow johnodon's build.

I wish I could just buy the box pre-built.
