submersible aquarium heater
    #986923 - 10/23/02 04:47 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

Well I bought an aquarium heater (cost $37 canadian) that said on the packaging "Submersible Aquarium heater". There were cheaper ones, but they were of the "non-submersible" type. So anyways, I get home, and open up my aquarium heater, and there's a line on the side of it that says "DO NOT SUBMERSE BEYOND THIS LINE", which pissed me off quite nicely. But after 15 mins of thinking, I just said "f$%k it", and used it submersed anyways. As far as I can tell, no water has gotten inside of the heater, and it works perfectly.

So my question is this: what are the dangers of doing this?

I bought a heater for $7 US that has a suction cup on the side and have it in a jar. Works good and keeps the humidity up. You have to assume there is some danger if there is a warning.

Since it's pugged into the wall, if you happen to have your hand in the water when it shorts out, you'd better hope you have a breaker in your circuit, or you're in for one hell of a suprise. If you have a GFCI receptacle anywhere near your incubator, I would recommend you plug it in there. You gotta respect electricity, its a muthafucka.

Well you could easily short it out and i guess possibly start a fire, but i doubt it would happen because if it shorts it should blow the breaker and the water should prevent a fire. But if i were you i would go out and buy a submersible one. I got mine for $10US. It just isn't worth the risk. Imagine coming home one day and being greeted by the police when they found your mushrooms after responding to the fire. It isn't worth it man.
