Aquarium grounding set, comprising of:

Earthing plug (fits any U.K. mains plug socket).

Dry component - 200cm long copper earth wire.

Wet component - 50cm titanium earth wire (GR1 99.67% commercially pure titanium).

Instructions for use and purpose:

Put the yellow earthing plug into your mains electrical socket, only the titanium wire is permitted to come into contact with your seawater

We recommend using cable ties to secure the titanium earth wire to a pipe in your sump, either the drain from the weir box or return pump pipe.  

Many aquariums can suffer with stray voltage (or more accurately induced current), often this is a by-product of oversized U.V. sterilisation or a lot of heaters - both of which can create magnetic fields. Aquarists can sometimes feel this electric current (a tingling sensation) if they have a small cut or have recently cut their finger nails. By earthing the body of water it not only removes this unpleasant sensation but also makes the working environment many times safer, in the event of a short circuit.
