I want to purchase a water heater for my RODI water while being mixed with salt in preparation for a water change. In other words to throw in the bucket for QUICK heating. What heater is best for that? Thanks
The heater could be laid down in the sump. Under full details the length of each heater is supplied. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
You will want a minimum of 2.5 watts per gallon up to 5 watts per gallon. Overall on a 120 gallon you will need a minimum of 300 watt heater. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

Good heater By alexcd on 8/6/2017alexcd would recommend this product to a friendI like this heater but it doesn't fit in my sump. The cord is stiff so take an extra few inches into account to fit it in your tank. I now use it to heat water during water changes.
Didn't work By Shawn on 8/1/2017Shawn wouldn't recommend this product to a friendBought this heater brand new and it did not work. Their customer service was horrible so I returned it and went with a different brand. I wouldn't recommend eheim, I've had an issue with their auto feeder as well.
Great for the price By Joseph on 7/19/2017Joseph would recommend this product to a friendI have two of these a 300 watt and and a 125 watt. The 300 watt is accurate to within 1 degree, the 125 watt is within 2-3 degrees. I simply love these heaters they are so easy to use, just plug and play. Will definite be buying more when I need them.
I like it By Joshua on 6/30/2017Joshua would recommend this product to a friendEasy to use. Love that it is dependable. Would tell others to buy it.
My go to heater By JcSH2o on 5/23/2017JcSH2o would recommend this product to a friendAbsolutely without a doubt my go to heater. Easy to calibrate, dependable to use. I would 100% recommend this to anyone.
Reliable By Terrence on 5/21/2017Terrence would recommend this product to a friendI like this heater. I use a 300 watt Jager and find that it does a good job of heating my tank and is reliable. Good price here at BRS as well.
this is the brand I use By Gary Majchrzak on 5/5/2017Gary Majchrzak would recommend this product to a friendTIP: Split required heating wattage between two heaters and run them on a controller
Awesome By Mark on 4/27/2017Mark would recommend this product to a friendExtremely stable temperature. Works better than expected, and really easy to calibrate!
High quality build, but the thermostat is sub par By Garrett on 3/10/2017Garrett would recommend this product to a friendMy Jager never was able to run without a 4 to 6 degree fluctuation, so I had to get a thermostat and not use the sub par thermostat. However, it is built very nicely, so once I got a thermostat, I had no problems. This is not a deal breaker because most heaters should be run on a reliable thermostat, anyways, to avoid failure.
Solid heater By brad on 3/3/2017brad would recommend this product to a friendThis heater is spot on after calibration. I use one in my sump and I have another one I use in my salt mix container. Always spot on
High Quality By Gerry on 2/27/2017Gerry would recommend this product to a friendAs I unpacked the 300W Large Heater, I was worried damage had occurred during shipping. To my delight, I saw the packaging ring had done its job with three broken prongs, but no damage to the Heater itself. It came preset to 79 degrees F and after 48 hours I checked it with my Fisher Scientific Thermometer to be accurate within 0.2 degrees. I am satisfied with the purchase and will probably buy another one in the near future.
Works well... reliable and price is reasonable By Gino on 2/24/2017Gino would recommend this product to a friendI have four of these heaters... two in my sump which are controlled by my Apex system... one in my mixing tank (just using its own thermostat)... and another that is a spare except for when used in a quarantine tank. The ones that are controlled by the Apex keep the temp within 0.2 degrees F. The one in the mixing tank reads a bit low (i.e. the water is slighter warmer than the setting on the dial when checked with an external thermometer... but works fine) I have the same complaint as others however... they are fairly long and you need a larger sump for them to fit nicely.
