Electrical Circuits Question:
Do they make a slim line version of a Square D QO 220v 30 and 50 amp breaker? Shawn B.
Hi Shawn - Great Electrical Repair Question!
No I don't believe they do, but they do make tandem single pole 15 and 20 amp breakers which may allow you to create space for the 2-pole 30 and 50 amp breakers.
NOTE: Do-it-yourself electrical circuits projects can be rewarding, but please be careful! Always make sure the circuit is off. NEVER work on live electrical circuits. For best results contact a Licensed Electrical Contractor
