I am building a new compressor from a salvaged C-H tank and other parts, the99.99 5 hp pump from HF, and a new 5 hp, 1 ph motor. The new motor is too much of a load for the pressure switch. I can get a contactor from Ebay, but I can also get some 25-amp solid-state relays a lot cheaper. Anyone have any thoughts on this option? The motor has built-in overload protection, so that's not a strong consideration.
