Now my problem is the clean up? It left bits of charred PVC in the tank. I don't think much if any made it into the grow bed.  But the charred remains are smearing on the walls of the tank. Heater worked well I just stood it on its end and didn't consider the rising heat and any air it might trap. Any ideas on the clean up?

dump it and start over. pvc already has some chems leaching out of it. i wouldn’t leave the cooked pieces in my tank.

while the tank is empty, you can switch to the thru wall heater.  ...this will make everything mo-betta!

all you need is a 2" uniseal. Brite Ideas has them, i have a few around. good news is the cold season is over in Tx.

order the smaller SS element and the Ranco thermostat and your off to the races.

Lol. I think the heater is done dealing. I was thinking of ways to clean the tank itself.

Mine DIY heater is working fine.  I got Randy's adapter and used 2,000 Watt heater coil. Biggest challenge was building the thermostat.
