I am going to run it from my algae x uv unit and stock 2100l pump running from my tank. what connector would u guys suggest i place if i want to drill housing so cord can exit and it can be watertight. uploadfromtaptalk1404399187183.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1404399211898.jpg

    update. dremeled the outlet to fasilitate outflow past heater top and drilled hole for lead. fitted stc 1000 temperature controller. if heater thermostat fails controller cuts power.double redundency. sealed wires with marine silicone. painted cutted filter housing with aqaurium friendly paint clearcoat and sealed with marine silicone layer.left whole lot to cure for 4days. lead secured on outside with electrical watertight connection. still to test in tank but cutout temp kicks in.
