We buy the packages at home cheapo, so im pretty sure someone has them cheaper, especially if buying in bulk.
As many as we use, I don't know why we dont buy in bulk.

Ahh Ok but if I remember those home cheapo almost never have bulk package on split bolts at all.

the last time I went in those home cheapo was about 5 years ago so now I do not know if they still stay the same or not.

Real bulk no, they have packages of 10 blister packed pairs so you get 20 in the case.

I've bought cases of them from Graybar or McMaster in the past.

DIY customer packaging is really BS, like 2 mc connectors in a package.

Many real supply houses have cut their in house stock down over the last ten years and want to get an order and bring it in from one of their warehouses.

That was why I started getting materials from HD, now I just order online.

Normally I splice ground wires together with a tiewrap. But since this is a pool and needs to be very safe, I use two tiewraps.

Here I thought tie wraps were only approved for PV systems?
