    I don't know what you mean here though:


    It's all ready up and running since last feb/march it just has no humidification going into it. How do you mean wire everything together? Plug all cords into the one outlet so it's only operating the one circuit with the GFCI? The rack itself I made of 1 x 4 wood and some 24 x 48 sheets for the shelves. It's not metal like so many I see posted online....
    Never mind about the bonding then

    Swords, it will probably be a lot cheaper just to install a GFCI receptacle and then plug your surge protector/power strip into it.

    The receptacles will probably be 1/3rd the cost of the contractor style GFCI cord...

    Here are a couple good "DIY's"

    The frist one doesnt stress the proper orientation of wire color to receptacle enough, so read both for the "rest of the story", good day

    So installing a receptacle involves rewiring the whole outlet? It's not a simple plug and play?

    My condos wiring is Red, Green and Black. I remember that from changing a broken light switch.

    I accept with information: If using T5's, the increase in temps around the bulbs will lower the RH dramatically in that region. so while it may be 80% around the plants around the light it will be significantly lower. T12's or T8's heating will still help, but may have to separate the two with a thin layer of glass.
