So, as the title states, I’m looking for some info on grounding a DC system. I did a search, but I still have some things I’m not positive on. I’ve read a lot of conflicting info on the subject, and I really haven’t gotten any more knowledge than before I started looking into it, just a bit more confused.
So, I’m hoping that if I lay down the basics of what I’m looking to set-up, I can get some advise on how to properly ground it.
So, to start off, I have a bunch of 4” DWV PVC pipe (the thin “drain, water and vent” stuff) that I plan to make the main runs from. The runs will be short, with the longest stretch of PVC being under 15’.
I have ordered a 10’ section of “4 Black Super Flex Hose from Peachtree, which has a metal wire that is said can be used for grounding.
I am going to run the HarborFreight 2hp DC, if that makes any difference.
If there is anything else that is important to know and/or ground, just let me know and I’ll fill in any blanks needed.
I just don’t need any sparks catching my DC on fire. I AM the 1 in a million guy it will happen to, trust me on that!
