And what is romax??
read the whole thread. OP stated recomendations for breaker and wire size for unit.
My post was simply 6-2 50 amp braker.
next post was 10 wire in conduit.
that is where the arguement begain. both are right by code. I was told I was a crook, don't know what I am doing, word like dumb and troll. Romax is a comerical brand name of wire. Much like a cotton swab is called Q-tip.
If I did anything wrong it was not noticeing the second post mentioned wires in conduit. Gave statements on amp draws or romax not wire in conduit.
later in post me and other were told we are overbidding jobs for using 6-2 instead of 10 in conduit. and that is the dumbest thing I have heard. it is the other way around.
Then keep getting asked why I said 6-2 in the first place rather than 8-2. And this is less than 20.00 different for 80 feet. But I am a crook.
I question someone telling a homeowner wire sizes for wire in conduit. We are talking residential. You can use conduit by why? No one explains this suggestion when it is the most expensive of the three options.
Keep calling names behind your computer. I would not recomend you do it inperson.
