Not for long term

Product worked great for about 14 months after installation, then went into blinking mode, meaning it's too hot??? It no longer generates heat. It just seams to have a very short lifespan.

Plug and play

This is my third Rena Smartheater and they are so easy to set up and replace two ugly things (heater and filter intake) in the back of the tank with one thing that is almost invisible. The perfect solution to making the tank less cluttered and they work great with the temp. setting on the dial being right on. I run my tanks at 80 deg. and just set the heaters at 80 and that's it.

Perfect heater

Well constructed, great visibility of status light, and extremely acurate temperature . (double checked with digital thermometer. ) Fit my Ehiem canister filter inlet hose, so that was a bonus. Great buy.

Strong Heater

I went out on a limb when I purchased this heater. I had used Jager Heaters exclusively for years after many of mis-haps with cheaper less quality heaters. So getting this heather made me nervous. However it is a very well made and designed heater. I'm so impressed I have now switched all my heaters to the RENA SmartHeater! You will not be disappointed with this unit.

heater

The heater is installed in the aquarium, because of the warm climate here in Texas heater has not yet needed to operate. Like the easy to read tempature #s& the warning system if the aquarium becomes too warm or cools too much which will warn me of a failure withen the system. Run a chiller in the system also.

RENA heater

I have not had the heater long enough to rate it's performance. The set up was really easy. it connected to my RENA filter perfectly. I wish I would have bought this type of heater when I bought my filter.

fantastic

I am using it to heat my unused ro/di water in a garbage can. Since the garbage can is plastic I was worried that the heater I was going to buy might melt the garbage can. This heater works awesome. I have had no problems and it is working beautifully. I highly recommend this heater to anyone...

Great heater

Works great, more compact than other heaters its wattage. Also has a nice case surrounding heater element so it is always cool to the touch on the outside.

Great

Been using it for a couple of months. No complaints at all. Accurate. Solid construction with good quality materials. Unlike glass heaters, this will not break easily.
