Last night I had a hose break on my overflow, dumping about 4 gallons of water on the wall, carpet and wall outlet. Thank the Lord the first thing I did befor I even put the stand in place was to put a GFCI outlet on the wall. Everything shut down immediately until I could get it all cleaned up. This is a must have in my opinion. I put this here because for some people it will be a DIY, but if you don't have the skills, by all means have a pro do it.
