Ebo-Jager heater question

I just bought a 250W Ebo heater and was I surprised when I read on the heater "do not immerse past this line"
I thought these heaters are supposed to be some of the best in the world!
If so then why isn't it FULLY submersible?

Correct me if I'm wrong, But if thought these were FULLY submersible.

only one thing left to say.........Good 'ol Visi-Therm.. at least they are

I don't like heaters that aren't fully submersible. When you think about it doesn't really make any since that they don't make all heaters fully submersible. I just don't think its as safe.

I have 2 Jager 250w and i don't see anywhere on it where it says don't submerge past this line. I've looked through all the instructions and don't see anything that says that either. Maybe different models or something..

It's a requirement by law that the warning is added. The Ebo is fully submersible. They're all I use and all are under the water.

Cheers
Steve

I bought one a month back and it said the same message.
I took it back to the store the next day and asked?

Of course the answer was "oh yeah it is submersible", But I I traded it out for one that did not have that message on it!

I asked the shop employee if he was going to enjoy working for me when my pregnant wife was electrocuted when she went to check on why all the fish were dead. Because, I would certainly sue the owner for the store and his car and his fish tanks and his house and I'd probably take all the dog doo doo in the back yard too!
