Re: What would you do to a fish room?
Think automatic sprinklers system controls! The are all now pretty much
controlled and located close to or right in your panel array. That way you
would have control for your heat & cooling system, your lighting, your
water circulation etc. all from the breaker box, with the possibilities of
separate circuits as posted before. Several years ago, I did the yard
maintenance for the football coach of Montana State University and he had
his sprinkler system split up to allow for a wash shower for his horses,
stalls and tool room. With drain's conveniently located in the floor you can
divert that dirty water to your outdoor plants, yard or whatever.
