Circuit Breaker Longevity
 
Hi, are there certain mfr. model breakers that don't last thru too many manual on-off switchings?? If so, which are some of the mfrs. that make breakers that will last longer if switched manually once a week , etc.
I'd like to get some breakers at Home Depot or Loew's if they carry such brands that will last a while. If not, I have a company that could order
wholesale if you can recommend supplier(s).
Thanks for the help, Steve

Buy the breakers that are switch rated.
