Well, here's the story, the line conditioner is not for HT believe it or not, this is what I need to do. My son is on dialysis every night. I purchased a generator in case of power lost (which already happened 3 times). Since this is electronic I figure that I would treat this as if if this ia piece of HT equipment. It's my understanding that Line conditioners clean up and maintain a steady stream of current to the equipment. Running a generator can have surge watts and I want to know if: 1. will a line conditioner protect against surge wattage? 2. is this the way I should go? That's my dilemna, the machine uses 600 watts off and on as oppose to continuously, and will a Line Conditioner rated at 600 watts do the job. I know this is not HT related but, I know the answer I search for is here. I tried calling the company that puts out the machine (Baxter) but they can't recommend a line conditioner only a blanket recommendation of yes you need to get one.
