    I am a bit confused, as I am reading a lot of conflicts, should I plug my COR 20 into surge protector or can should I plug it direct into my EB832? Any pros or cons or either, or risks?

    Thanks

    The suggestion is to NOT run it on the apex power bar. The COR20 is a stand alone pump, if that apex power bar fails the pump can and will still run.

    You can plug it into the eb832 or eb8. As was mentioned, since it is a stand alone pump there is logic to not plugging it into the apex power bar. That being said I have mine plugged into the eb832 because I like to monitor the power usage and have power alerts configured for it. I’m not concerned with the apex failing.

    One of my EB832s failed the very same night I plugged in the COR20. Probably coincidence but I wasn't concerned with apex failing either until tonite.
