    What is the wiring method used on that lighting circuit -- AC or MC cable, NM cable, knob and tube? I would think that anything in the 80's would have everything grounded.

    I only know the US rules...

    I would think you'd want the hole you drilled in the exit pipe to be as close as possible to the pump output and on top of a horizontal section (its purpose is to let air out). What diameter is that...

    18V is hardly better than 12V. They make electric fence controllers and that is what you should use. They make the hundreds of volts required and pulse and limit the current so you don't lethally...

    That green screw on the right just above the neutral bar is your "main bonding jumper". This connects the neutral bar to the panel chassis. If other bars are bolted to the chassis, they in turn would...

    Is the sjoow cord 3 or 4 wires? As long as you keep neutral and ground separated, it should work. Why did you GFCI this -- do the instructions ask for that? I'm thinking the breaker is tripping via...

    No. You have a voltage source not a current source (the motor will pull the amps needed based on the applied voltage -- you could have a 100 amp source and things would be no different). The voltage...

    Not enough information to answer. Can you verify if the fan transformer is 12VDC or 12 VAC? Generally, a 10% to 15% over voltage will not hurt a motor as long as it isn't overloaded. But it depends...

    You'll have to take what is normally 10" and make it 1" to get 10:1. I think you'll have a hard time reading finer than .25 at that large tilt angle which would yield .025 resolution. It may work and...

    One zero cost thing to try is to check your roof vent(s) to make sure the vent pipes are not clogged. I'd stick a hose with a jetter nozzle on it down each vent pipe as far as you can. If the tub or...

    I could mean the black isn't connected at the furnace end, or the other side of the 24VAC power source isn't connected to a ground or the same ground. Voltage jumping all over the place is common...

    Just another note on your main panel where the 60A breaker was. There are a lot of issues on your neutral bus. Neutral wires are to be lugged alone -- no other wires can share the hole. Ground wires...
