What's the farthest I can place a powerbar from the main unit?

Does any know (preferably from experience!) if I can place a powerbar 50 feet away from the main controller? If so, what would I need to run USB this distance?

I used 2 15' usb extensions plus a 10' for a total of 40' with no issues,,, you can usually get 15' usb extensions from a computer store fairly easily just dont use any usb amplifiers as the Aquatronica voltage is different and will cause damage.
