Questions & Answers

What is the best location for its breaker

Asked by: Dan
It is best to tie to a breaker in the top of the panel if the panel is fed from the top. Tie to a breaker in the bottom if the panel is fed from the bottom. This protects all of the circuits from incoming surges.

does installing this on one side of the panel box also protect circuits on the other side of the panel?

does installing this on one side of the panel box also protect circuits on the other side of the panel?
Asked by: Anonymous
yes. Both sides are served by this unit. A 240 volt breaker connects across both incoming phases.

My main breaker box is full, but I have space in the subpanel. Can I install the Type 2 surge protector in the subpanel?

Asked by: DIYdrummer
This answer will likely help someone else with the same problem. Many breaker manufacturers make "quad" breakers in many configurations. Eg. 15/30....15/40....20/30....20/40....20/50 etc. So if your panel looks full. Look for 2 smaller loads like 2-20 amp receptacle circuits and get the quad breaker(essentially 2 twin breakers stacked onto each other). And there you go 2 fewer spaces in most full panels. Never double lug your breakers. If you have no option but to double up 2 small light loads, then wire nut them together and pigtail them onto a breaker.

Can it be mounted inside the panel?

I have a ton of room at the bottom of my Square D electrical panel. Could I install this surge suppressor and instead of connecting it to the outside of the panel, could I simply rest it on the inside bottom instead?
Asked by: Ted
Not recommended-- you can't see the indicator lights and can't be sure to maintain proper clearances for heat or spark-over.

Whole House Surge Protector is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 67.

I read all the great reviews about this so I decided to install one even though in California we don't get many electrical storms. Well, 2 weeks ago, I crossbar carrying high voltage lines up the block broke and the power lines fell onto the ones below and created a surge following a massive explosion and two sets of power lines falling to the ground (and on my car but that's another story). 5413 homes lost power and only two houses lost electronic items... mine and my neighbors. I had this installed and lost a dishwasher (blew out the board) and a power strip to my tv and home theater system. My next door neighbor lost a microwave oven and a porch light fixture. No one else in the neighborhood lost any other items. If this things so great, why did I lose the most stuff?? I don't trust this thing one bit. I'm going to request that Eaton come out and inspect this thing because it's a HUGE false sense of security!! It didn't blow out the device or even trip the breaker that it's on.... it just blew out my stuff!!

Excellent product which has best specifications for residential systems at a very cheap price. Only took 5 minutes to install, and is working to protect my system from power surges. Everyone should use type 2 and type 3 surge protection. Couldn't be happier.

I bought and installed this along with its cable protection counterpart (CHSPCABLE). The installation was simple, but I have some experience. After install, we started having alot of modem failures and intermittent failures to our internet and phone. I assumed it was a faulty modem. Called cable provider, they sent out a tech. He immediately showed me the problem. The signal coming through the cable unit was terrible, after disconnecting the unit altogether, the signal went to being very strong. Problem solved. The tech then provided me with a bill for 2 hrs. of labor because the issue was with my equipment, not theirs. He also said that he sees this problem fairly regularly, and to pretty much steer clear of these contraptions. Contacted Home Depot and Eaton and was told the problem was my cable provider and not their product. I spent @ 40.00 for this add on plus the 2 hr. labor bill from cable company, which was to remove it because it is junk. Lesson learned, buyer beware, never again. If someone would take responsibility instead of "passing the blame" this would be so much easier to stomach.

Easy to install, with one gotcha. A 50A breaker, as recommended to be used with the surge protector, will not accept the small gauge (#14?) stranded wires of the surge protector. These large current breakers will only accept a #8 solid wire or larger. What I had to do was to add a couple of crimp sleeves that just fit over the surge protector wires and then fit the sleeves into the circuit breaker. There's now a good, solid electrical connection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good product, worked as designed I had one of these installed 2 years ago when I bought a generator. Then in November of 2014, some power lines nearby came down and caused a power surge through our housing plan. I saw 7 furnace contractors on our street that day. We had several neighbors that lost ALL their kitchen appliances as well as other electronics. My house came through relatively unscathed; the surge protector blew out as designed (see picture) and we lost 2 other surge protectors inside the house. Without all of those in place I'm sure we would have sustained major damage. Multi-tiered surge protection is recommended and in our case saved us a lot of money. I will never be without one again.

When you get into the installation documentation, it is a 50 Amp one breaker protector! It only protects one breaker! and it requires a dedicated supply breaker as well. So you get one slot used up and only one breaker protected. Of course if your house has a 50 amp master, it could be used there, If you look at the documentation it shows MULTIPLE UNITS protecting a single panel. Not as advertised!!!
