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?

comment Are there any restrictions on using crimped connections to electrical devices (receptacles, switches)?
I just want to say I love to see things like this, thanks for sharing! I have always been troubled by the stiffness of 12 gauge solid copper and never thought about stranded as a solution.

comment What is the cheapest way to make well water with 800ppm TDS suitable for bathing and washing dishes?
True, the best thing is for him to get his water analyzed as part of deciding if he needs a water softener and installing it but usually when well water has high TDS, it's magnesium and calcium. It is likely he is concerned about washing applications from talking to his neighbors who probably have roughly the same water quality that he has. Sodium doesn't affect washing, it's more of a concern for drinking water which he explicitly ruled out.
