whisper double trouble

soooo just a gripe/heads up about the big tetra whisper double HOBs. I got one for free from a friend just after i got my 110g tank... it was an old second nature whisper (same thing). that filter is still alive and kicking like it was brand new.

anywhoo my whole aquarium wall is powered by 5 GFI outlets... today for an unknown reason the GFI blew. Turned out to be a bad GFI, it broke from kicking on and off repeatedly as it randomly blows every few weeks cant figure out why. SO new GFI.... last about 3 hours and kicks again. NOW im determined to figure out why. After MUCH headache and heartache running around with a ground tester and volt meter to figure out the problem (and mad props to my girlfriend for staying by the breaker box flipping the breaker on and off for me... wife material right there! LOL) we tracked it to a tetra double HOB (newer tetra one i got for free) that was leaking down into the motor/wiring box, and ultimately down the cord to the strip it was plugged into causing a ground fault. unplugged it, problem solved.

Go to feed my 110, just after, to find out that the other free tetra double HOB i got from the same guy had a dead motor!! i lost two of the same filter in one swoop, but the ancient second nature one still is kicking strong and leak free lol

everyone! go check your tetra HOBs for leaks!!

Good find. I have an old double output hob that I don't use. I dug my box of stuff from before when I had a tank set up. I have 3 201 powerheads too.
They just don't make stuff like they used to.
And go go girlfriend. Better go ring shopping my man.
