Keep in mind this was just thrown out there and I am not practicing it. The plug of the two cords was actually submerged. Freaked me out when I saw it but then I noticed that all the power was gone.
I talked to an electrician about it he said it would work but the flip side is if the GFI fails you have a dangerous electrical situation. He suggested not to do it.
I have had 2 floods so I am always looking for something to prevent it or help prevent it. In my previous set up, I had a 20 gal
tank sitting in a 32 gal
container. The container gave me a bit of peace of mind but I knew it would not catch it all.
*180 gal Display, 100 gal basement sump, 33 gal refugium, 3x250 MH, 2x160 VHO actinics, zoos, some softies, LPS & lots of acros and other SPS.
*100 gal prop tank plumbed into main system w/ 2x96 PC lights and 1x150 MH,
