Instructions

Installation Instructions:

  • Check device for damage.
  • Remove transit protection.
  • Fix suction cups to double suction cup holder and clip onto heater (not near the heating spiral).
  • Mount thermostatic heater with double suction cup holder vertically in the aquarium, fixing it in a place where water flow is brisk (filter outlets/vents).
  • Set temperature.
  • Plug into electrical outlet.

Setting temperature

  • Turn the temperature selector ring to the desired temperature.
  • Monitor the aquarium water temperature using an accurate thermometer for at least 24 hours and make any necessary adjustments to compensate for calibration errors.
  • You should periodically monitor your aquarium water temperature with an accurate thermometer (Red light = heater in operation).

Note: The temperature selector ring should only be used as a guide. Always use an accurate thermometer for water temperature measurement.

Recalibration

If, after a day or two in operation the setting scale does not correspond to the water temperature, refer to the following procedure to recalibrate the heater:

  • Switch off the heater and unplug it from the electrical outlet.
  • Measure the water temperature with an accurate thermometer.
  • Turn indicator arrow (red) point to the measured temperature.
  • Set the desired tank temperature with the temperature selector ring (blue).

    Good thermostat

    By Graciew on Sep 14, 2021

    Be mindful what you order with it as it will be in same box with canned food and any other heavy thing banging into it. We had some paper in the box but not in a protective way for this item.

    Good Product

    By Rich on Apr 13, 2021

    The calibration adjustment is a bit tricky, but once set properly it keeps the temperature constant and stable in my tank. I was using this same heater to set up my son's tank, but it fell during transit. I tried using it and the indicator light did light up and stayed on, but the water temperature did not reach my set point, so I bought a new one. All is ok now. Heaters do fail especially with age.

    Hot Hot Hot

    By heater on Jan 3, 2021

    This thing will not stop heating my tank. I have a 55 gallon and no matter what temp I turn this too it wants the water to be around 80 degrees... I got a more powerful heater because this room is always cold, and I guess 80 is fine for most fish, but my goldfish prefer a little less than this but this heater just has a mind of its own. I've been dialing down the thermometer temperature every day to see if I can get it closer to 70. So far the lowest it has gone is 77, today I set the dial to 69, I'll keep going down each day to see if it will get the water less hot.

    Not Consistent

    By BDuFoe on Dec 19, 2020

    Unfortunately, I experienced inconsistent heating like many others. The water would get quite cold before it would turn back on regardless of temperature setting.

    issues with heating up 150 watt Eheim heater

    By Brian on May 31, 2020

    I'm not sure if this heater is too small for my tank (Waterbox 50.3) or its just not that good. I have it set to 83 (highest setting) and it only gets to 77.6 tops. Its not even a month old. I am going to save it for a backup and buy a 200 watt of another brand.

    Not accurate

    By molite on Aug 24, 2019

    I am told these are high quality thermometers. I bought 3. They are not heating ronthe set temperature. I have tried to calibrate the temperature and that is not working out either. The temperature set and the actual reading in the tank are always two different values. I would not buy eheim thermometer again.
