    Toooloud... Home Depot sells a GFC outlet you just plug into your existing one... no idea how much more they cost but it doesn't get ny easier than that.

    alright guys!

    i think we all know now how important it is to have a GFCI plug for our tanks, To prevent electrical shock or fire from leak!

    So i have posted this.

    This is something i run on my tanks as well as have made and sold many to other hobbiest in the area! and willing to do more if needed .. Its very simple to do but if you still feel that you dont think you could do it, just let me know and will arrange to build one for you for the cost of $25 thats the cost of the parts that i use..

    So for everyone Else this is a simple easy way to install this with out the fear or hurting yourself or the current wiring in the house,

    Basically its going out and buying a GFCI Outlet, the switch box and a Heavy duty tool replacement cord.

    this is what the finished product will look like, you can plug it into the current outlet in your house and install it into the stand of the tank and it will look finished and profession!








    Now these can be made with either White or Black outlets !

    Hope this helps, and if anyone has questions please just pop me a line.

    mlambert@rogers.com

    Thanks
    mike
