Question Power Bar

Hi everyone!

I asked a question about power bars before, but here's another one!

After asking everyone about providing power to their aquariums, it proved that power bars are the way to go. So, I went to Canadian Tire and bought a NOMA GFCI 4-Outlet Power Bar. This one: http://www.canadiantire.ca/AST/brows....jsp?locale=en

It's one that my father (who is excellent with electronics) recommended for me.

However, on the back, it does say "not for use with aquariums". I suspect that it is merely there in case someone uses it incorrectly and gets electrocuted. My father thought the same thing, so he told me to buy it anyway.

Also, strangely enough, on that Canadian Tire site, it says "shuts down power quickly for use where possibility of water exists". Pretty contradictory if you ask me!

In conclusion, (finally ), what do you guys think about this power bar for my aquarium?

I would use it.
As long as you dont have it too close to your tank or dont allow a huge spill to happen you should never run into a problem with it.
I just use regular cheap walmart brand (or something similar) for my tanks and they work great, so I imagine a higher quality one would be better, although you wouldnt ever notice unless a freak accident happens

I'm going to put it on my desk behind a partition that would keep it away from the tank. And drip loops too!

Here we call the things you're talking about "power strips".
