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.

Solid

REVIEW
Appears solid and heater keeps my water temperature very consistent. It is thicker than the average heater. It will not fit in the heater compartment of my Red Sea Max 130d so it is sitting in the skimmer chamber. The LED warning light is great.
