    Well. This is a first for me. I have safeties on my overflows so that if the water level goes to high it will trip the gfci on my pump. Unfortunately this happened today while my skimmer was 3/4s full with nasty carbon dosed skim mate. And the extra few gallons of water overflowed my skimmer...

Included is two Emperor 400 filters, a bunch of...

    My stealth heater shorted out and fried my pc 4 on my reefkeeper. The computer part still works, but the plug module is gone. I'm buying another plug module, but want to make sure something else pops before my $90 pc 4. The built in fuse failed and it popped my house circuit breaker too. Is...

    So I was replumbing my sump last night when I accidentally sprayed water down a wall and into an electrical outlet. Not being an electrician, I thought "oh awesome, I'm going green by using hydroelectric power!" but apparently that's not what that means. :( So there was a flash and the breaker...

    I bought a couple Sunlight Supply 2 bulb T5 fixtures that are pretty old, I assume they are between 5 and 10 years old. One works great, the other is pretty bad and I may have to purchase all new lighting. The bad fixture is 48" and uses individual reflectors that clip on the bulbs. Every day...

    So I came home today to the smell of burnt electronics and my back door propped open. Apparently, a surge protector decided not to trip and neither did the main fuse, either. As you can see, this thing just melted and singed the carpet below. I'm REALLY lucky the whole thing didn't go up in...

    Are most power strips about the same? I've been changing some of my older strips out. I've properly placed them on the wall, with velcro strips for easy removal. I've added plug in GFI's to some of the outlets, with different strips on different outlets. I've placed drip loops in all of my...
