    Hi all,
    I would like to install a switch upstairs by the door that we most often use when leaving the house to shut off the well pump. After doing a quick search I am not finding much of a variety for double pole single throw toggle switches. Can anyone direct me to a site that has them, or suggest an alternative solution to what I am trying to do? Thanks.

    How much variety do you expect in a commercial duty switch? They are readily available at any supply store, possibly even a hardware store.

    Good, but how much variety did you need? If you found a single model, that is all you would have needed.

    Here, Graingers will ONLY sell to licensed contractors who have a "resale" tax number. THey do not want to deal with being "tax collectors" for anyone who does not have the certificate.
