B., the heater in my mixing tub was not plugged into a GFCI outlet. :sad2:Hi all,
I just installed a GFCI outlet for LeslieS's and my tank, and was thinking the tank needed grounding since GFCI only works hot-to-ground shorts. Curious whether the GFCI kicked in when you felt the shock? Also, where does one get a grounding probe? (ahem, seriously folks....) Any suggestions good vs. bad? Is grounding the sump enough, since saltwater's pretty conductive, or do you ground sump and tank?

Frank, good points. Thanks for the experts' opinion.russ
the only thing i whould put on gfic outlet is heater and lights also a alarm so it whould go off when gfic is trip
(save that bad heater russ might want to use it to test gfic outlet to make sure that a voltage leak whould trip the gfic,looks like time to make a leakage circuit for the tank with a alarm)
