    I would like to get the opinion about this transfer switch. I don't see that much feedback on the web but the folks here can criticize pros and cons about this and I can have a better decision making.

    I am having a problem with an ATS that is tied in to a corner grounded delta system from utility power. When 1 pump is running, generator works like a champ. When 2 pumps are running, the ATS is constantly switching between utility and generator power. I am new to this kind of wiring system...

    I have a customer that wants a whole-house generator system installed. But he has been "shopping" on the `net, and has come across several sites pushing Generac units. I tried to talk him out of getting one, but once he compares the price of a Kohler, or Winco, he goes right back to saying he...
