Awesome, man!! Great job--look amazing, sweet lights! Take some tank shots soon. Thumbs up!!
Ever since I installed these lights, my GFCI keeps tripping. The only thing that is done differently is that my MH were on a power strip with a built in timer. I put the new lights on this same power strip only on the non timer side. I have had this strip for almost two years. The outlets on the strip were all left open. I think that salt got into these outlets and is causing the GFCI to trip??? The trip usually seems to occur when the lights ramp up and ramp down.
If you think there is any possibility of salt in it then don't second guess yourself and replace it. Had 1 of mine do that and smoked the socket on the power strip.
I agree that it's likely the power strip -- salt buildup, humidity or any other reason for some itty bitty current flow between the Line voltage and Ground will trip a GFCI by design. You could go through the trouble of trying to clean it or simply finding other means of course.
Looking good civ.
