With the hurricane coming I'm sure we will lose our power for a few days. If a bumblebee passes gas near our utility pole we lose power for 24 hours
I have a shallow well pump. 115 /120. I have a 6500 amp generator that runs the 2 sump pumps plus the refrigerator and a few lights but not the well pump.
I was thinking of pulling the breaker to the well pump and cutting the line in half and putting in a male plug and female connector. I'd leave them plugged in unless the power went out. When it does I would unplug them then connect the male end of the line into the generator.
Just wondering if this is safe and if it would it work. I'd hate to burn out my pump motor or burn down the house
I wouldn't need it connected to the generator all the time. Just when we need water to flush the toilets, wash the dishes and clean up. Then I could unplug it.
