I was considering buying a grounding probe, but i have read that they can actual make current flows in the tank actually worse.

Any input on this?

Does anyone have one? or specifically not have one for a certain reason?

I have one. When my rio return pump started to go, i had a current in my tank. Just to test out the probe, i put it in and it brought the shock wayyyyy down to almost nothing. When you use it, just make sure it's properly hooked up. And made out of titanium.

If it gets to the point to when you add a probe it gets worse, you need to IMMEDIATELY test, find out and remove the equipment that is directly leaking AC current into your tank - If not, you asking to kill your self.
I don't even know how to test the stray current in my tank? How do you do that?

That was a good link. both articles were informative. I wouldn't know how to test for current either. I could tell you how to test for voltage but, that is different in this case.

well whichever one i need to test for before i add the grounding probe, that's the one i want to test for to see if i even need a grounding probe.
