Thanks @bib, I figured that fact was outside the scope of my answer so I didn't mention it.

comment Is it possible to control the speed of the fan on my central A/C unit?
@TimB The blower fan in a furnace is typically multi-speed, however, it's most often set up at a specific speed. The other speeds come in when you start getting in to multiple stages, and other more advanced setups. As for the condensing unit. If a variable/multi- speed fan was used, it would have to be controlled by a complex system of temperature sensors. Even then, unless the unit was far oversized, it would likely run at full speed anyway.

comment How can I connect a 120V compressor to a 3 phase WYE 208 electrical system?
@AimForClarity Unbalanced systems can be a problem, but in residential use for the most part the loads are small enough that it's typically not as much of a concern as it would be in a factory for example.

Do you have a septic system, or public sewer? If you have a septic system, has there been a lot of rain lately?

The OP said that the shower is backing up "at which point the shower drain begins to back up".

@user13762 The original question title "Looking for Cheaper Solutions than Two New Ballasts", made it seem like you wanted us to shop around to find cheaper devices for you. Even the emboldened text at the end of the question, could be taken that you're looking for us to shop for you. That's why Monso suggested "this is a bit of a "shop for me" question".

Do you want to control the speed of the outside condensing unit fan, or the inside blower fan? What type of A/C system do you have?
