4/4 Update:

Heater failure came home to 101 for temp. Lost almost everything except 2 hammers and most of the inverts. Will give second update tomorrow.

Oh no!!😮😮😮😮😮😮 Honestly I think of you are keeping lps and softies you’re better off without a heater as long as you’re not running anything in the garage. I have seen far more heater fail stories than my hammer got too cold and died. 

Sorry to hear that Kai.

Sorry to hear this Kai.

Did you have a lot of fluctuations with your Heater? My heater is keeping a steady 79, since day one.

Thanks, Kim, I threw everything in my main tank when I got home. one or two might make it but time will tell. I had the heater unplugged and then when cable organizing it stupidly plugged it back in.

Gotcha....Just a thought.  Your Running a MJ 1200 you may not need a heater?

Wow - that is a bummer. Hope some of your pieces pull through. Heaters do seem to be the most deadly fail point short of a tank giving way. Good luck with the recovery!
