Re: Feed to Pole Barn 100Amp Panel

Is the 4/0 neutral required, suggested or preference?

Would the 2/0 Neutral reduce the feed capacity to the building?

Re: Brackets on piers for my pole barn

From my experience a pole set into Concrete will last less time than one in well drained soil.

Re: 240v wiring question

I work for a pump manufacturer and we make our motors in 50Hz & 60Hz for a reason.

My guess anything intended for 50Hz will not run long on 60Hz and vise versa.

Re: A few roofing Qs

At that age, I would tear off and reroof.

Then you know what you have.

If it is a detached garage, with a two way roof, you and a buddy could do it in two weekends easy.
