    Follow the advice in posts 2 & 3. If that does not work, contact the manufacturer. They will likely send you some new breakers that may work.

    What kind of loads are you having trouble with?

    You need a pump control panel. They can be purchased with a control transformer that will give you 120V for the timer, pressure switch if you need one, and a HOA for the pump.

    I'm inclined to agree with that too. I have seen such an attitude displayed by some of the "green to everything" guys I have worked with.

    A breaker lock is fine, but a disconnect near the sink is not such a big deal either. It's not like the electrons in there are going to decide to jump down the drain.

    If you are saying that using the conduit as the EGC is hack work then I think you are wrong.

    Interesting. I have never worked on one of these set ups without all the loads after the phase converter.

    It would be like using two legs off a corner ground I suppose. The motor won't care. Take...

    I agree. It's not a typo. They are both 90 degree conductors.

    You do need xhhw-2 to use 90 degree in wet areas though. 310.13 says plain xhhw is 75 degree in wet locations

    So you don't have a Service Disconnect outside next to the meter I take it.

    Why not run the GEC up the inside of pipe and use a smaller hole in the LB?

    I'm confused. Where does the GEC go after it leaves the hole in the LB? Where do as it start before it gets to the LB?

    You don't have to go all the way from the water pipe to the ground rod with 6, just from the service panel to the ground rod.

    Yes, ground fault as in short circuit/ground fault protection, not GFCI protection if that is what you are thinking of.

    Other way around. You can run 1/0 to the water pipe and then jumper to the ground rods with #6, or #6 to the ground rods only and 1/0 from the service for your water bond
