comment Biggest size breaker in 200 amp panel
Your Tempra 36 Plus does feature "full power-modulation based on both the incoming water temperature and the water flow rate. In layman's terms, the Tempra 36 will automatically sense the water flow rate and temperature, calculate how much power is needed to do the job, and will apply exactly that much power so it can precisely maintain the desired output temperature regardless of whether the flow rate changes or not." But in the worst case, you can still overload your 200 amp service.

revised Where does the ground wire go in a 3-prong dryer cord configuration?
Clarified references to phases. Changed 220VAC references to 240VAC for consistency with 120VAC.

comment Blade comparison, DW4765 vs DW4701:
Yeah, their marketing drives me crazy. You know the design engineers and manufacturing engineers and application/product engineers know this in their sleep but they couldn't bother to write it down for customers. And then they push it through big box stores like H*** D**** or L**** where no one on the floor has any clue!

comment Can two 30 ampere circuits be combined in an outlet?
You're right this is a bad idea, but there wouldn't normally be any current flowing in the neutral since this is a 240V circuit (assuming US location).

comment Why would 2 different sprinkler zones cause pressure at the pump to drop to 0?
An obstruction in the mainline would not cause the low pressure but a massive leak after the valves would. Can you tell if your pump is operating when zone 1 or 2 are activated? Another thing to try is to take off the head on zone 1 closest to the pump. Does water come out?
