I am putting together a dyi tank. 60x40x20 inches. Pool Pump, pvc but no heater. I am looking at inline water heaters. Also, being im Texas i doubt i will have to turn it on much about 8 months out of the year. But lets exclude that variable.
What specs would be most desirable for that size tank?
I have looked on ebay and amazon. And i see inline heaters that woyld appear to work for $100-$150. The descriptions say they are for large baths, spas and small pools. But ppl lie to sale their products all the time. Its not a professional grade tank, i am aware of that but I'd like to be able to keep up and control as many variables as possible so i can exclude outside forces when i make mistakes.
Any idea on kilowatts and other important specs to go by? Is something like this in the pic adequate?
Before you osha standard saftey guys (rightfully) chime in, yes i plan to have it professionally wired in.
i did search for these answers and mostly found cattle heater convo.
