Aquarium Heater?
    #4009612 - 04/03/05 08:43 PM (13 years, 21 days ago)

I bought this submersible fish tank heater and I wanted to use it in my drawer for incubation. On the safety instructions for the heater it says "NOTE: This heater is for indoor aquarium use only; it should never be plugged into a wall outlet while out of the water." Does this thing get hot enough to burn anything? Can I use it without water? Can someone give me a link to a good tek to use?

do not use that while not immersed in water. In fact, using an amount of water grossly under its rated amount is also bad. I use an aquarium heater in my setup, where I filled one tub of water with about 5 gallons of water with some h2o2 added, with a smaller tub fit inside.

If you use the heater outside of water, it will burn out the element because it will heat up too quickly and the coils will snap from heat shock due to there being no resistance to heat change from the water.

There's no way you can use it WITHOUT water. Build a tub-in-tub.
