    I have another water pump for my well sitting in my shipping container for …. “just in case”.

    I expect our China supply line will be destroyed when we goto war over Taiwan.

    I have purchased backups for the things I use most like bread machine, and my vitamix. I have bought multiple sets of shoes and socks, and I grab extra shirts when I am at the thrift store.

    My take on having not the same system is different. I have 12, 24, 36v solar, I am thinking I should be able to get one of the systems going if one breaks down I have 3 systems I can rebuild from the parts I can get…

    Having multiple solar systems has saved me till I could get the broken systems back up. I do imagine with war / bank fail on the horizon we have to think even more in these terms.
