    What do I need for a simple lighting system ? For building a space bucket.

    You can run a 1000w on a 15 amp breaker. 15X.8=12 Amps . you have lots of room for a 1000w with that setup

    Is there an easy way to tell which outlets are on the same circuit? I'm renting this house and the writing on the inside of the circuit breaker box isn't the most detailed.

    Shut down sensitive loads.

    Start flipping breakers one at a time and go check what fixtures and receptacles stop function.

    I have a 400 watt hps setup in my closet. I live in a small 2 bedroom condo. Whenever I run the vacuum or any other powerful equipment, I get a power outage. I then go to fuse box and flip switches to restore power. It tends to only happen a couple times a week, but my next grow I will be using a 1000 watt light. How do I prevent this from happening?

    Adding a new circuit is probably your best option.
