  1. Your amperage chart is wrong …at least in the US 14 is put on a 15amp breaker, 12 is put on a 20amp breaker, luckily we don’t sell off the shelf 25amp breakers. Remember the average Joe…is reading these articles. Again, 14gauge does not belong on a 20/amp breaker.

    • It’s using 220V rather than 110V, which, can have more amperage when the voltage is higher. (You don’t need a lot of current when you have a lot of pressure)
