Surge Suppressor

Why would this surge suppressor be installed on sump pump or grinder pump? Thanks!

Safeguard your equipment
With electrical power at a premium during the sticky summer months, utility companies often lower their output of power. This is normally called a brown out. A brown out or reduction in power can do irreparable damage to your appliances, especially your air conditioner. All appliances are designed to work with a certain amount of power. If that power level is dropped, your appliances will continue to function, but they will be forced to work under duress.
A lightning strike to your home can damage or destroy all of your electrical appliances. With a lightning arrestor installed in your breaker box, you can protect all of your electrical appliances including your air conditioner, computer, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, stereo and televisions with a single dedicated lightning arrestor tied into your home’s electrical panel. This simple, inexpensive device can save you thousands of dollars in the event your home is ever struck by lightning.


Thanks! Marcel. This was connected directly to the pump and sitting on the floor beside the sump pit


Obviously, the pumps cord wasn’t quite long enough and he stole it…. I mean obtained the surge protector for free from work. :slight_smile:
