Hi: I've added a dehumidifier in the crawl space under my house. It trips the breaker fairly quickly (a few minutes). The only other item known to be on the circuit is another outlet currently running the ultra violet sterilizer that my well water passes through. What do I need to have done? Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX XXXXX
The UV sterilizer is 120V, 50A. My Garage Refrigerator is also on the circuit. The breaker is 15A
The plate on the sterilizer reads 120V 60Hz 50 A.
So far I haven't found anything else on the circuit.
Correct 8 amps
I don't have a volt meter.
Both UV sterilizer & dehumidifier are are plugged into separate ordinary household outlets. Borh outlets are mounted to floor joists in the crawl space
