      I agree that voltage spikes, dips and transients are the biggest enemy for electronic and motors. Adding some type of protection will save you in the long run.

        "I use a a whole house protector on my pool subpanel "

        What an excellent idea - I have the solar subpanel protected but never thought about the pool subpanel. I put in a Pentair Intelliflo XF 3HP in 2014 as part the initial pre solar energy reduction - works perfectly and cut my summer electricity bill by about $80/month with careful programming. I have an extra Square D QO2175SB not being used but not sure there is room for that - time to pop off that Pentair subpanel case and see what its insides look like.
