    True mate when i damaged my pump it burnt my digital controller out should see it inside looks like it got set on fire , the pump reversed the polarity to the controller that was unfused and killed it totally @-:

    The advice you got there is correct, a fuse is to protect the cable and whatever is connected to it; the smaller the amps the more protection, all you have basically done is removed the protection and are relying on the controller and pump. Look at the amp rating on the pump, if its 6 amp that means you are expecting it to take 14 amps more than it wants before the a 20 amp fuse will blow.
