Be safe with your surge protectors – buy the right voltage rating for what you’ll be using it for, and if necessary do some research. Never use surge protectors in humid or wet areas. Always uncoil cords, keep them away from obstructions, and keep children and pets away from them. Never use a surge protector on an aquarium and never plug a surge protector into an extension cord.

At present I have TV, PC with Modem, aquarium lights and filters on 1 surge protector. When I unplug a filter the electricity to the TV flickers. I want to correct this problem before I hoop up a new TV. My old TV is 30yrs old thus uncertain if electrical spikes made it start flipping. Not something I want to chance with new TV.Determine and replace energy-abusing aquarium equipment. Plug up to 8 electrical devices into this smart power strip to monitor electricity use. Built-in surge protection keeps equipment safe while the large backlit LCD shows operating cost. Use Kill A Watt PS to forecast daily, weekly, monthly, or even yearly electrical expenses. 12-3/4" x 3" x 2-1/2" high.Aquarium safety should be taken seriously, you are putting a lot of water right next to a lot of electrical and the two do not mix at all! Having an electrical problem in water could be life threatening if conditions meet the right circumstances. there are a couple different ways you can prevent electrical problems, one you can install drip loops which are a loop in the cord so water has to go down hill and fall off the cord due to gravity and cannot enter back up hill to get to the power cord, all aquariums or anything dealing with water should have a drip loop. also i went out and bought the first of many power surge protectors i will get for my aquariums this will protect the aquarium and fish from electrical problems if something ever goes wrong, its a little more money to spend but it is totally worth the safety of keeping your outlets going, and your aquarium equipment going if there is ever a problem in the aquarium. don't take it for granted and think this will never happen to you, i have been shocked a couple times from lights getting water in them or something like that. be safe guys comment rate and subscribe, and god bless.This may be a little off topic but I hear a lot about people building a separate circuit breaker for their aquariums. Is this a better option than using just surge protectors? Adding GFCI outlets wouldn't be a bad idea since we are dealing with large amounts of water near outlets. A seperate circuit to keep that fuse/breaker from shutting off half the house isn't a bad idea either.
