hey guys i bought the 48" wavepoint t5 retrofit kit a couple of months back one day while doing a water change i had my hand in the tank and my forearm brushed against the reflector and i got a shock so i tested it i was getting 57 volts from the reflector to the water i checked all my pumps and heater for voltage and found that the voltage was comming from the light so my lfs ordered a new fixture when it came in i tested it there and the same results from the brand new light i tried to contact wavepoint and after about a week i got someone to answer my email who told me i was wrong i am a lineman i work with electric every day so when he told me iwas wrong i got a little pissed so after going around and around with this guy he agreed to test a light in the factory once again several emails and a couple of phone calls and he got back to me saying i was right but there is nothing he can do about it except give me a new light the customer service is horrible i just wasted 265 dollars i am going to order the icecap kit tomorrow
