    Replace wire - Laars LX Heater to Aqualink - 4 strand copper

    Hi Guys, I need to replace the wire from heater to Aqualink. 4 solid copper runs. Can't seem to find this at Home Depot. The LX has four wires, red, black, yellow, green.

    What do you recommend..

    Thanks!

    It does not have to be stranded wire. I use thermostat wire which is solid. Usually you only need two wires.

    In most cases the electrons don't care about stranded or solid or the color of the covering.

    From that color code it sounds like telephone or alarm wire.

    Yes, I think its 24 gage solid copper phone wire. I better cover it with something...
