Does anyone know why a heater would shock a person when touching the water? or even explode. Reason im asking is i get shocked now and then when the heater turns on, its not bad but it does have a kick to it. Ive had one heater explode a while back, not wanting to have the same thing happening again, especially if im working on the tank one day...

I shocked myself as well, but that was due to using a cool AquaH20 heater with water level switch and electronic temp reading/setting which was meant for FRESHWATER only. I sumhow missed that warning on the Box...

Yip agree with Henk, never given a day's shit. I am also of the opinion of running multiple heaters so they don't have to work too hard :)
