Precision Submersible Heaters is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great visual design, poor mechanical design. Purchased the 300 watt visitherm heater for my new Marineland 75 gallon tank. Purchased specifically because I love Marineland products and the visual temperature gauge and the really nice temperature dial. Placed it in my new tank to stabilize the temperature before I transferred my fish from my smaller tank. Heater was working for two days but water was not heating up and a day later the heater stopped working altogether. I don't mess with electrical appliances regardless of the simplicity. Perhaps this one was just a dud but I was really disappointed it stopped working. The real pain is dragging myself back down to Petsmart to exchange it. And of course, there wasn't another one in stock so darn. Went ahead and used my old heater but it's not big enough though the water temp seems stable for now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product does not work more than 2 months I bought the 300 watts heater cost between 50-60$ 2 months later just stopped working. Light on but not heating called company they replaced it 2 months later same problem called a second time. They agreed to send another But I was told by customer service life time warrant does not mean life time warranty and if it breaks again it will not be replaced( life time warranty means life time) . Very disappointed if marineland would make a good product I would not have to keep going through this. I have other heaters bought before this one all still working.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Faulty safety shut-off I pulled the wrong plug when doing a water change so the heater didn't get unplugged. It was about 50% out of the water when it turned on, completely melted the plastic mounting bracket, but the safety shut-off never tripped. We unplugged it and carefully removed it from the tank, then went about pulling the strings of plastic out of the water. Yikes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the new look! I bought one of the old Visi-therm heaters about a year ago for my 10 gallon and when that one gave out on me I e-mailed customer service and they responded within one day and helped me get a new replacement heater. So far I love the new design, the black looks alot better than the light grey with the color scheme I have. And it isnt the most "accurate" on teperature -hence why I'm only rating it 4 stars- but then again my last one wasn't perfect either so can't complain.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Trouble w/ 400 Watt Heaters I've purchased two and both have condensation INSIDE the unit within a week. This is extremely worrisome to me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 1 month? I purchased the 400w and it only lasted 1 month. Pretty frustrating when you have a reef tank and have your temps drop overnight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Guarantee Great company. It did poop out at plug after about a year, but they replaced it, no questions other than "what is your address?"! Valerie

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk I have had aquariums for 40 years. It seems all products have been cheaping out over the last five years and charging ridiculous prices for this non funtional product. These are no exception. I have had it for less than a year. Clearly the seals are no good. The temp hasn't been steady and it started whistling about a month ago. I bought a different brand heater and we will see how that goes. What good is a lifetime warranty if you have to just get another piece of junk from Marineland. I am going to attempt returning to the place of purchase for a refund.

I have Marineland 20 gallon freshwater tank I bought as a kit. The Heater seems to be running very hot I have to keep unplugging it. When you look at the heater from the front of the tank is cool to the right or left? It goes hot either way I seem to

Asked by: Cory Catfish
You should see a + sign as well as a - sign on the top of the heater. Turning the dial towards the + sign will increase the temperature. Midway between the two marks represents 78 degrees. Be sure to have an accurate thermometer on the tank. Call 1-800-322-1266 if you need more help. BREX

i have a 75 gallon aquarium, what size heater do I use?

Asked by: AMC19
For larger tanks like this we recommend a heater at each end of the tank. You can use two of the 200 watt heaters, each one is good for 55 gallons or two of the 250 watt heaters, each one is good for 70 gallons. BREX

I have the heater from the Marineland front curve 38 gallon it doesn't show different degrees how do I know I am heating the water to 78 or 79 degrees?

Asked by: Big Papa
There are three marks - a + sigh, a minus sigh, and an arrow or triangular mark. This latter mark is the spot that represents 78 degrees. Set the heater here initially, and leave it for a few hours. If the temperature in the tank does not reach this mark or goes past it, adjust the heater in one direction or the other. Move the knob, one click at a time, waiting a second or two in between each adjustment. BREX

I have a 10g aquarium kit w.o temp manuals. The heater it came with doesn't have the temperatures on the dial. Are the temp positions the same as the one with the numbers listed and does it auto turn on and off? Also, please explain the thermometer strip

Asked by: Jenn111
You should have a + sign, a - sign and a arrow or triangular mark. The latter represents 78 degrees. Start with it set there, give it several hours to bring the temperature up in the tank then move it one click in the direction you need to adjust the temperature - + to increase the temperature, - to decrease the temperature. Nothing to explain. Peel the back off and stick it to the outside of the tank in a location that is visible to you, but does not disrupt the view of the tank. BREX
