I was going to get a PFO system, but changed my mind half way through. I purchased the PFO sockets and extensions, I like the quick connect system. However, I have since gone with the CoralVue elect. ballast, thanks to Darin at Captive Reefs. I do however want to utilize the quick connect wires and sockets if I can.
The question I have is on the wiring form ballast to socket. There are only two wires coming form the ballast to the socket, however the wiring from the socket has three wires. One wire (green) is grounded to socket mount and the other two go to the socket. Don't I need a ground from output to socket or do i just ground the wire from the socket to a screw on the ballast, just doesn't seem like that would do anything. Or is this ballast grounded on the inside and I don't need a ground on the socket itself?
This is for a 250W MH
mogul. Please help I don't want to burn my house down.
Should I just get another socket and just eat the PFO Quick Connect?
