I would lean towards the distilled, well test results change frequently, even a heavy rain can effect them. In a small system it's too big a risk factor, jimo

That's actually a pretty valid point you have Red. Makes more sense about the rainfall also due to the possibilities of any leaching from lawn frets and/or if you live in an area with snow and salt is used for road and driveways.

Any standard light socket, I use an architects lamp I got from Walmart for $6. Or one of the goosenecks, coralcompulsion and reefkoi both have them for $30
