Water Heater Broken?
    #869136 - 09/07/02 05:26 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Today I bought a aquarium water heater to use in my incubator and i think i may have broken it. It has a cap to cover the dial and i accidently put it in the water for an hour or two without this cap on and the entire glass tube has water in it. Im trying to figure out if this is how it works or if i have broken it by not having the cap on. Thanks.

Doesn't sound like the submersible kind to me. Maybe you can remove the glass and dry it out. Doubt ti though.

just make sure that the glass doesnt have a crack in it. and for future reference....let the water heater sit in the water for like 10, or 15 minutes before you even plug the thing in. this will allow the the glass temperature to acklimate to the surrounding water temperature. if you didnt do this and you just pluged the thing in...the heat from the coil will heat up the glass to fast causing the glass to break. i know this wasnt really the question here, but that might help you save another visit top the pet shop. if you havw any other questions about this stuff, feel free to pm me....i am pretty knowledgeable when it comes to pet store supplies. and i could point you in some directions of pet related product suppliers with really awesome prices:) phil

get your money back and dont buy another. i think incubators are unecassary. use the cupboard above your fridge or put them in a warm part of the house. dont waste money on something that is not a neccesity(sp?)
