If you see a MAX water line it is not submersible. If you just see a MIN it probably is. I would still check to be sure

I goggled that heater and does in fact say it's submersible. It's a non adjustable one as well it says.

Amazon.com: Hagen Elite Pre-Set Heater 50 Watt: Kitchen & Dining

Most heaters have a dial on the top. Some are waterproof, some aren't. I'm worried about the fact you say it has a MAX waterline... I've never seen a fully submersible heater which had a MAX....

Ebo Jäger heaters are submersible and have a great reputation. I have had no issues with mine and I've used quite a few of varying sizes over years. The Jagers also have a water level line but are fully submersible. That being said, not sure about the Hagens. Check it out before you use.

Found this:
"Hagen Elite sumersible heater" - not submersible?

Apparently the max water line is to satisfy the laws in Canada.
