    are you referring to the E-series ?
    the sites state submersible heaters.
    it should be written on the box too or have a warning not to submerge.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    the fully submersible ones i have, different brand, have a min water line.
    most other semi submersible heaters have a max water line

    it's fully submersible, the min. indicator is so you know that portion has to be underwater ( or the heater can / will explode ) but the portion above the line doesn't.
