Has anyone ever done this or know where I can find the parts to do so?

ill be doing same upgrade on my sunpod, the only thing you would have to do is replace the sockets with 250w ones which ill be purchasing through reefgeek (20bucks each) and use thicker gauge wiring, which can be purchased anywhere, to handle the increased wattage. im just wondering how much more heat a 250w puts out compared to a 150w, as it is my 150's can heat up my water temp by 3-4 degrees.

Thanks Trojan,

I can get a heat issue during the summer.

I would guess more watts = more heat.

I guess we'll be finding out how much more.

Thanx again for the info!
