I have noticed that my temp probe is leaking voltage into my tank.

It is a DIY probe, basically housed in an empty bic pen.

Any ideas what will effectively seal it ?

Some feedback, tried the silicone, but some how water still getting in.

I tried prattley's putty, the one we use with coral mounting. Seems to have done the trick

Thanks for the advice :thumbup:

Hi Guy's.
Good to Know.
One is often pointed to the Condum as a good means of sealing.
The one concern, Contaminents from the rubber/lube's, etc.
Any comments.
Thanks.

I assume you mean condom? If so I would be very wary of whatever it is they put on them to lube them etc. Unless you know 100% exactly what it is they use then it's just not worth the risk, you could be adding contaminants to your tank and run the risk of killing livestock, rather use the tried and tested good old marine silicone or pratleys putty, works wonders and is 100% reefsafe.
