Innovative heater design improves aquarium safety for fish and owners Friday 23 April 2010 PDF Print It’s a well known fact that high voltage electricity and water shouldn’t be mixed in the home. Yet pet owners can be at risk of potentially life threatening electric shocks from traditional fish tank heaters, which place 240 volts of electricity dangerously close to aquarium water. Pioneering aquarium designers Reef One have become the first to address the risk with an innovative aquarium heater, engineered to ensure safety of both owner and fish. Tropical fish rely on constant heat within the water to maintain their body temperature and the ground-breaking biOrb Intelligent Heater takes readings over 3,000 times a minute to accurately measure and adjust the water temperature to keep it constant. The Intelligent Heater™ from Reef One uses new aquarium-safe heating technology and advanced electronics to heat water to a constant and suitable temperature for tropical fish without risk of high voltage electrical faults. The biOrb PowerPod, included with the heater, ensures that only a low voltage – the equivalent to that of a small battery – enters the aquarium. The fully submersible Intelligent Heater automatically turns off when removed from the water, so that it can never over-heat and become damaged unlike traditional fish tank heaters. The robust design encapsulates the electronics so that no water can enter the unit. Reef One’s marketing manager Tom Crosswell says the heater is an important step in maintaining the wellbeing of tropical fish and their owners. “Safety is key when water and electricity are in close quarters and our engineering team have developed the Intelligent Heater to address potentially serious safety problems with traditional heaters,” he added. “Not only is this heater safer and far more accurate than others on the market, it’s also stylish, discreet and the PowerPod allows everything including the heater, light and pump to be neatly plugged into the same supply.” The Intelligent Heater is available from all leading stockists from May 2010 and is suitable for aquariums up to 60 litres in capacity.
