Hi Randal;
Did you have questions about this?
I have been 100% hydro,  solar for over 25 years. I have a tristar diversion control on my wall.

Howdy Thomas,
I don't have questions(when I do I ask Jerry at https://apmhydro.com/). I posted this to answer the questions most people will have about tying systems together, and the need for diversion control.
It has taken me quite a few years to understand. I also have been off the grid for xx yrs. Am lucky to have not burned my house down or melted $$$$ equipment.

Nice. An older outback panel from when there was actually room to work in it!. Nice to see the trace still performing...
 
Do the next thing next. That's a pretty good rule. Read the tiny ad, that's a pretty good rule, too.
