Hummmm, so are you saying I shouldnt put my power strip inside the tank??? sorry had to say that. I would imagine that the power head should be submersible, dont think it would work quite as well if it wasnt. I really cant say more than that, I havent ever used a hagen model power head

It must be submerge. Most powehead in the market are design to work in water as they use the water as the cooler medium for the motor as well.
