Basic Power Issue
I originally had my Biocube set up in this one location attached only to a standard two plug outlet to which I had plugged in a surge protector. I had three tank lines plus two computer lines into this one powerstrip and everyhitng worked fine.
Now, I purchased a 5 plug GFCi outlet that simply plugs into the main outlet. I plugged in the surge protector to the computer in one plug (two cords to the computer) and the other two current tank lines (filter and lights) into two of the other GFCI outlets. It actually has one less plug then previously.
What is happening, however, is that anytime I wake up the computer or even touch the lightstrip on the tank, the GFCI trips. It isn't tripping the breaker, only the GFCI. There are no water leaks, dust etc.
As a test, I got fed up yesterday and took off the GFCI outlet, plugging everything back into the main outlet and everything is working fine..no power trips. I have the tank situated in such a way that unless there is a catastrophic burst, the outlet will stay dry but I would prefer a GFCI in there.
The main outlet otherwise works fine. Could the 5-outlet GFCI be bad?
