    What do you use for temperature?

    I heard that heaters could break easily, but mine has a 15-year guarantee so I'm not too worried about it. It has the temperature on it but that can be a little hard to read, so I have a stick-on external temperature marker. Idk what else I'd use. The heater lights up when warming up the water.

It would probably get up to 95°F on a hot summer afternoon. It's summer now, and in winter the water could...
