    Last night at 10:00pm my GFCI tripped. I could not see anything obvious so I reset it. At 3:00am my GFCI tripped again. The power backup kicked in so all was fine in the morning, except for the mysterious trip. After some investigation I found the current leak. It was one of my Hydor Koralia...

    Hi All, So I've been reading a lot about electrocution prevention, GFCI's and ground probes.....scary stuff. I feel as if I'm going to go out and get one no matter what the results of this post but I've heard a lot of people say they won't use them as it's almost guaranteed to trip often. I...
