Turn on surge may well be more of a problem with 110V supply.

It's working and I've never had a fuse blow or my RCD on the house mains trip.

As I said, try without, if you need it then use it.

This is not meant in a nasty or derogatory manner but UK electrical installations are renowned for their safety and the correct application of physically sound principles.

In countries with lesser mains installations you may well benefit from a soft start approach.

My house has four ring mains each is rated at 32A (240V) so 7680W each.

I have no problem with tripping breakers.

You might well need it. I would leave a space for it but fit it only if you need it.

At the very worst you might pop a fuse.

Sounds like more than one issue. Bad connections are what usually causes wiring to become antennas and rectify the CW. Besides checking inside your house very carefully, a very good filter can solve that. ( Bad connections have a nasty habit of burning down houses) Track down DVV. Sagging lines are another problem. The only fix I know is massive regulated supplied or external stepping transformers.
