In simple terms, no, the device can't be connected to the lugs where the incoming power lines connect to the disconnect switch. The device needs to be connected to the distribution panel (breaker box) through a pair of 20 Amp breakers, much like if you were adding two new circuits to the panel. This means that it must be on the home (inside) side of the main disconnect switch, rather than on the line Read More

Good day,
The leads from the 51110-SRG must be connected to the power mains through a 20 Amp (maximum) disconnect and fusing means. Either dedicated branch circuit breakers (independent single-pole preferred), or a fused disconnect switch may be used.

There's really nothing to do. The device doesn't "trip" like a circuit breaker; it works all the time, but is only active (that is, diverting excess power to ground) when the voltage on the line (hot) buses in the distribution panel goes above a preset limit.

There's really nothing to do. The device doesn't "trip" like a circuit breaker; it works all the time, but is only active (that is, diverting excess power to ground) when the voltage on the line (hot) buses in the distribution panel goes above a preset limit. Whenever a surge (high voltage) situation occurs, the device does its job; the rest of the time, it simply sits in "standby" mode, waiting for a surge. If the total current flow through the device gets too high for too long, one or both of the circuit breakers connecting it to the line buses may trip. If that happens, you'll need to reset that breaker. (If the breaker trips repeatedly, contact an electrician.)
Once it's installed, the only real maintenance is to check the device occasionally to be sure that the indicator lights show proper operation. If they aren't showing the proper status, the device will need to be repairs or replaced. Read Less

The unit isn't a circuit breaker; it doesn't "trip" and have to be reset. It simply diverts excess power to ground when the line voltage goes above a preset limit. When the line voltage drops back to a safe level, it remains in operation and will work again automatically when the voltage goes above its activation level.

Answer: 
Once the 51110-SRG takes a large enough surge, the unit will no longer provide surge protection and must be replaced immediately. The LED indicators on the face of the surge protector will alert you when the device is no longer surge protected.

Answer: 
In order to connect the unit to both line (hot) buses in the panel box, it's generally necessary to locate both breakers side-by-side, one above the other, on the same side of the breaker panel. If you locate the breakers on opposite sides (columns) of the panel, you'll have to offset them to make sure that you have one breaker on the Line 1 bus and one on the Line 2 bus.

If this is wired into the main electrical panel how does this protection work? Doesn't make logical sense to me. To me how a whole house protection surge device should be, inline in a sub panel box alone on the main power lines pre-main electrical box to really protect all the devices connected out from the main panel? I understand this to be more of a line conditioner more than a surge protection device? Please correct me if I am wrong.

This protects inside the panel by intercepting power surges/spikes before they travel to the circuit breakers going further down the panel and directing the excess electrical energy to the ground.

When an appliance in the house (or an outside source) creates a transient voltage surge, the surge is transmitted back along the circuit to the distribution panel (breaker box), where it passes into the line (hot) bus bars, and then on to each other circuit in the house. With a surge protector connected to the line buses via circuit breakers, the surge protector is able to detect when the voltage on the buses exceeds the safe limit and shunt the excess voltage to ground. (The surge protector is connected to the neutral and ground buses as well as to the line buses.)
This means that while the device protects equipment on circuits other than the one where the surge originates, it doesn't do much for any equipment on the circuit where the surge originates, because that equipment will be exposed to the surge before the voltage on the line buses rises enough to trigger the surge protector. The good news is that the worse sources of surges - HVAC systems, refrigerators, freezers, etc. - tend to be on individual circuits in most newer homes, so there's nothing else on the same circuit with them.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 120/240-Volt Residential Whole House Surge Protector The 51110 SRG (SPD Type 2) Residential Surge Protection Panel is designed for use on 240/120 VAC at the circuit breaker panel ( the service entrance) in homes, apartments, and condominiums. It offers advanced surge protection for modern electronics and appliances, reducing the rish of damage from spikes and surges entering the property through AC power lines. The leads from the SPD (Surge Protection Device) must be connected to the power mains through a 20 Amp (maximum) disconnect and fusing means. One breaker for each 120 VAC branch. The SPD may be mounted directly to the Circuit Breaker Panel via built in connector which can be inserted in any "knock-out" hole in the panel. Warranty is for the benefit of the original consumer purchaser only and will continue for as long as such original purchaser uses the Leviton "True Whole-House Surge Protection" package. It is a limited 10 year Connected Equipment Protection for up to $5,000. August 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Price! Great Protection! Simply Great Install! Having had numerous power surges damage and destroy expensive electronics like laptops and home appliances over the years, the prospect of having whole-house surge protection was a welcome one to say the least. So when saw this item available in the Home Depot Seeds campaign, I quickly selected it. Initially, I expected to be able to install this product myself since it is intended to wire directly into the top-left and top-right 20A circuit breakers, the reality was that in order to have the manufacturer honor the covered devices warranty, a certified electrician must install this product. Now obviously if you have a friend or family member that is a certified electrician this could cost you nothing more than a favor being called in. For me, I contacted a local company who offered to install the product for a reduced cost due to the easy and quick install. Overall the install went smoothly other than working around some odd-ball wiring from the previous owners of our home and I would estimate it took no more than 20 minutes and the install was very clean. Now it would seem apparent that I can't speak to how well this product will protect against a lightning strike or a surge from the power company since I continue to pray that I never have that happen. Based on the Underwriter Laboratory confirmed specifications of this product though, I am reasonably confident my electronic equipment is protected from such an event. With this product costing a fraction of the amount of many of the other whole-house surge protectors on the market and the easy/clean install, I give this item full marks and I fully recommend this product to all home owners.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good So far, the install of this device was fairly straight forward although I didn't personally install it. My neighbor is a qualified electrician and he did the install along with purchasing the couple additional parts needed to put this with my panel like an elbow, double breaker, and a small box. I would say I'm pleased with how easy it went in as I was with him during the install and it's a pretty basic 4 wire install. I don't recommend self installing without knowledge of panel opening risks or being a qualified electrician. The unit itself looks nice next to the panel and I'm looking forward to the next storm to see how this holds up! August 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A must have for residential electrical protection Leviton Residential Panel Surge Protective device (SPD) is a must have for any residential whole house electrical surge protection, whether from the power company or an electrical storm. In todays homes with more modern home equipment and personal computing devices the need to protect them from electrical surges is a must. Leviton has a $5000 warranty equipment replacement in the event that when the SPD is properly installed and you still suffer from equipment failure due to an electrical surge. That is a good peace of mind knowing that you have a little added insurance if you have an electrical surge event that can damage your home and valuable equipment. August 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install, hopefully it works! Installation is very straightforward - install a double-pole breaker in your electrical panel and wire the surge protector into it. It was my first time cracking open the electrical panel and it took me all of 20 minutes to install. Would have been even less but I had to move some wiring around. Now, the threaded part that goes into the load center is a bit short. So if your panel is located within a finished wall and it's cover has extends past the panel itself, this will result in it covering the very top of the surge protector. While this doesn't affect the unit, it just looks a little weird. Secondly, Leviton's warranty is for 10 years, but only covers up to $5,000 in damage and it excludes several items - such as A/C units, hardwired alarm systems, and garage door openers. That being said, living in Florida, I do hope it does it's job as we get our fair share of lightning! Since the surge protector is pretty inexpensive, it's worth giving it a shot. August 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Every house should have one This is a great product and will do a great job of protecting you home from an electrical surge from the pole or a lightning strike. The instruction are very easy to follow and this could be a very simple DIY project if you have experience working with your electrical panel, However to maintain the warranty the electrical connections will need to be handled by a licensed electrician. But the security will be well worth the cost! August 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent medium-price surge suppressor As others say: surges happen, a surge protector can make a difference, this is not a difficult job but should be left to an Electrician for your safety and for the warranty coverage. You can also buy in-panel suppressors which install in place of two single breakers. In my modest opinion, these provide a bit more protection by being wired right ON the bus instead of a foot away. These also cost more because they must be certified for the specific load-centers. And they take two spaces, while this outside-panel suppressor "can" be wired to an existing 2*20A breaker used for a load you don't mind tripping-out in a surge. Surge suppression is a little like filtering. To drink lake water you would have a frog-screen for the big stuff, a sand filter to catch the murk, a fine filter to get very clean. Layers of filtering. I already have an in-panel suppressor. This one will go near my well-head as a second "layer" of protection for my well pump. (In many rural homes, the best way for lighting to go to earth is THROUGH the pump to deep water.) At this price it is VERY much cheaper than pulling and replacing a zapped well-pump. August 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Piece of Mind.. AFTER my home was hit by lightning and it blew out a great number of devices and appliances, besides the physical damage of "blowing out a wall". I decided to install one of these for a piece of mind. THIS will work for "surges" coming IN to your service entrance from you power company OR perhaps a lighting strike to something outside your home that could "surge in" through your service entrance/panel. However, the lightning hit a zero clearance metal chimney, came down through the attic to ground where the lightning "jumped off" the chimney pipe in the attic and hit a sheet rock corner bead (from behind) and blew the wall out. It also jumped off in another area, hitting a cable line, (setting a truss on fire) blowing out a cable booster plugged into an outlet and then through the rest of the house... FROM the INSIDE outward. We were LUCKY as my wife called 911 and the fireman checked the attic and saw the fire that started. It was still small so they put it out quickly.. this is the lucky part.... This device cannot protect you from this scenario.. Today, in HD, you can ALSO buy surge protection outlets (These are NOT ground fault outlets, these are different) that you replace your standard outlet with. For a peace of mind, we installed the whole house surge protector and the surge protection outlets on ALL areas we have TV's, Appliances etc, plugged into. My son-in-law recently had a lightning strike to a submerged pump set up that went into his home and blew out some of his appliances as well. I got this for him and my daughter.. He was an electrician, so he will install it. I had a licensed electrician install mine, (even though I have electrical skills for warranty and insurance reasons). This product offers a $5,000 Connected Equipment Warranty and a 10 year limited product warranty.. July 30, 2016
