Would the Heater Pad Part # 277-000163 Be Suitable for a 46 Gallon Water Tank


I know tat my grey tank is 46 gallons, but I do not have its exact dimensions on me at the moment. Will one 277-000163 Heater Pad suffice for a 46 gallon tank or would I safely need two?

According to my contact at Patrick Industries, the 25" x 7-1/4" Heater Pad with Thermostat part # 277-000163 would be suitable for a 46 gallon water tank. If you were to use this heater on a water tank larger than 46 gallon then you would want to use two of them wired together but as mentioned, the one pad will work with your 46 gallon tank just fine.

As you probably read, this pad has a peel and stick application with an integrated thermostat that will turn on when the water in the tank gets below 45 degrees Fahrenheit and turn off when the water in the tank gets above 67 degrees Fahrenheit. I have attached a review video of the product for you as well.
