Nordic, same results with heater out of the tank and yeah I'm only running 2 canister filters, air pump and heater.
OVT, yeah it turns out my PH isn't 14, no doubt about that. I'm getting the reading I'm expecting when the water isn't in the aquarium. I don't have a GFCI but I'll probably pick one up. I'm going to see if I can make a ground probe but the strange thing is there are no toys in the tank, no wires go into the tank but some do run up the back of it.
Rob in (ca), I don't think its the PH probe, something power related is definitely going on in the tank to cause the readings to be high.
Zorfox, I'm not so worried about me, I understand power a little bit and don't see my exaxt issue as a problem to me, but with that said I'm going to solve it because it isn't safe. I'm more worried about my fish, what are they feeling?
Last night I put the heater back in but unplugged and today the ph is reading 10.9, so its better but still a bit there. I'm going to try a different outlet for the power bar and go from there. As most of you know its not an easy job, things are tight and no moving 125g tank.
