When I lived near Bailey, I had several tanks. I kept the house ~50
when I wasn't home and 65 when I was.
I used the commercial tank heaters. The key is buy them just a bit
bigger than recommended. I use a 250W in my 55's, and used a 100W in
Also, throw those over the top heaters away. Spend $30 and buy a
submersible heater. The heaters I used were the green ones made by
some Swedish(?) company. Jurg...?
Why reinvent the wheel when these guys have spent the time devolping
and manufacturing a quality product that does exactly what you want?
