OK you guys (you listening MD), I am proud to say my shameful days of not owning a megger are over.
I recently purchased an Amprobe AMB-4D. It is a little digital bugger.
I know what they can do but I have never even used one. Anyone care to enlighten me as to how to work this bad boy.
I just Sunday could have used it at one of my best friends house. His deep well pump went bad. I cleared the connections at the well head and turned the circuit on. No more tripping breaker. Cool.....or so I thought. After replacing the pump it tripped about 15 seconds after it came on.
With the megger could have tested the underground conductors before replacing the pump.
Now let's all help Petey not have to go through this ever again. K??
