    You do not loose anything by running it on 120V except for the size of the wire, I would run #12 for your 13.4A motor. Your name plate rating is strange as the 240 volt rating should be 1/2 the 120V...

    Is there a fresh air inlet on the house side of the main line trap, if not that's your problem. The roof vents need something to pull air from or they will pull down the toilet traps.

    Glad it worked out now back both stats down to 120 so it's not scalding. Unless you have a tempering valve 120 is the max you should set a residental heater to.

    Thanks JW

    I was thinking NM while typing UF, Type NM is not acceptable in any wet location. The conduit does not make a wet locaton dry. I would still go with THHN/THWN rated single conductors,...
