How did you test the voltage? Each wire to ground getting 115 volts; or both wires at the same time getting 230 volts?

Wouldn't hurt. There are two schools of thought on carry permits. One is to get one to be legal. The other is to never get one because the Gubment will know you are a gun fanatic and will label...

You said you have the water tested and it's 0/0. I'm not sure what that means, but health departments generally test for lead, bacteria, nitrates and nitrites. If your tests come back zero, I see...
