Plug for aquatek solenoid?


What type of plug do the solenoids that come with aquatek regulators use? Is it the two prong type or the three?

The third "prong" is what grounds the device and is not really "needed" so you can always use one of those adapters. Often referred to as a "cheater plug" or a grounded outlet adapter. Should be less than $1.

If it has a ground plug, you should use it. Just because the device "works" doesn't mean it should be used like that. Safety first and all.

You can pick up a "heavy duty" mechanical timer for less than $10. It has the three pronged outlet. I bought one when I got my setup, and haven't had any issues with it (other than fat fingers messing up the time!).

I actually found a two pack on amazon for 15 only a dollar more than the two pronged one so that solves that lol
