How many pads do you have running to need a booster.

I've got 13 pads but you get away with 7 without a booster it says it depends on the cable lengths between pads

Hi Alex
I have 5 pads spread across 40 ft. Installed about 2009. Have had one failure because of the DB9 connections
having surface rust on the metal ends of the connectors. Cleaned the ends will steel wool and gave them a good
smearing of vaseline on the outside metal parts only then covered the connectors with cling film couple of tie wraps
to keep the cling film in place. Had no problems since
Cheers
