Here are some other links:

DrsFosterSmith

That Pet Place

The DrsFosterSmith description says "completely submersible to water line" which means that you can't put the heater in any lower than that water line. That Fish Place says (scroll down) that the unit is not completely submersible. Is that your heater? It's an Ebo-Jager and yours is Jager. I read somewhere that Ebo-Jagers are not made anymore.

So, hope this helps clear things up a little. It appears as though you cannot put this heater in the water below that line.

thanks everyone.. Im pretty sure Eheim bought the heaters from ebo-jager and kept the jager part.. so maybe Ill call bigals and eheim to make sure but according to what menagerie found, I can completely submerge the heater. Ill let you know what i find out.

I was just looking on my ebo-jager heater box and it reads, "waterproof heater" The picture on the box however, shows no 'water line' like the product in the box does. Could waterproof also mean submersible?

I had a similar fiasco some time ago. I ordered a heater under the 'submersible' category on a web page and then when I looked at the item on a different page, it said not to submerse it. I quickly cancelled the order, but when I asked about it, I got a few responses along this line.

I have the Ebo Jagers heaters and I submerse them, some people did some checking a while back and yes, it was more of a legal thing having to do with Canadian electrical standards or something, they are just fine submerged.
I don't know if you want to take that advice or not, but it might shed some light on the conflicting info you are getting.

no ... waterproof is very different. Waterproof means that up to the waterline, it is water tight and water cannot get into the unit. Submersible means that it is completely water resistant and is completely water tight, no water can get into the unit.

There is an example of a submersible heater (IMO, these heaters one of of the best ever!)
