READ AND FOLLOW ALL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
1. DANGER-To avoid possible electric shock, special care should be taken since water is employed in the use of aquarium equipment. Follow these safety instructions carefully. 2. Allaquarium appliances must be disconnected from the mains power supply before servicing an aquarium or conducting any activity that allows direct contact with the water. WARNING: Disconnect the power from all aquarium appliances before putting hands into the aquarium. WARNING: If the appliance falls into the water DO NOT reach for it!

To avoid the possibility of the appliance or socket getting wet, position the aquarium to one side of a wall-mounted socket preventing water dripping onto the socket or plug. 6. WARNING: Use a drip loop. A “drip loop” (see illustration) should be arranged by the user for each cord connecting an aquarium appliance to a socket. The “drip loop” is that part of theelectrical cord below the level of the socket or the connector if an
extension cord is used to prevent water from traveling along the cord and coming in contact with the socket. If the plug or socket does get wet, DO NOT unplug the cord. Disconnect the fuse or circuit breaker that supplies power to the appliance. Then unplug and examine for the presence of water in the socket. 7. WARNING:To prevent electric shock, supply electrical power through a wall mounted Residual Current Device (GFI-Ground Fault Current Interrupter) with a residual operating current not exceeding 30mA. If the appliance shows any sign of current leakage or if the GFI switches off, disconnect the power supply from mains and remove the appliance from the water. 8. WARNING: Do not permit children to use thisappliance unless they are closely supervised by an adult at all times. 9. WARNING: Do not use an appliance for other than its intended use.
