Which way should a Ultratherm go on?

Post by Hezekiah » Fri Sep 28, 2018 12:44 pm

My Ultratherm came in the mail today, and I am super excited to put it on! It should work a lot better than the heaters I have been using. I have a problem though- I have no idea which side is supposed to face toward the tank. Sorry, I know this is a weird question, but I honestly have no clue. Is it the side with the copper strips or the other one?

Umm, I made a guess. :) I think it is with the copper side out, but I am waiting until tomorrow to put it on.

I looked at mine and couldn’t tell as far as the copper strips but the label that’s on it is facing outwards meaning facing the wall if that helps.....

Where the plug meets the pad there is a plastic junction, the flat side of that goes against the tank and the rounded side points outwards.
