I search for this answer and couldn't find anything, so I figured I may as well start a new discusssion...
How do you guys set up the electrical for your outdoor systems? We had a rainstorm this weekend so it got me thinking about how to protect the electrical bits (electrical cords/plugs, the aerator, the pump if not a submersible type, etc). I was hoping to see pictures of some of your setups.
Also, the power outage we had made me realize that I need some sort of battery backup to keep the fish alive during an outage. How do you incorporate a redundant power supply with an outdoor system?
I just use GFI circuits. My back up system. 35 KW Kohler with automatic on/off. Runs on propane. Also available on diesel. This set runs my 7000 sq. ft. home and out buildings inc. my fish grow house.
I bought some of those things that people use for outdoor Xmas decorations and they work very well. They protect the connections.
