    I want to add an immersion heater to my tank and wondered how I attached the element to an electric lead? Any explanation or links ?

    er..wow..immersion heater elements are really high wattage...lot of current...really high power....i dont know off hand but i bet sprucey does a plug is a bit dodgy at 13amp rating..its like a big kettle element...and yes you would need a thermostat or else it would just boil....even hissing sid aint that hot...:eek:
