I agree that it doesn't look awfully safe....the premise behind it is also flawed.....incandescent lights which use more watts produce 90% heat to 10% light where CFL's (compact fluorescent lights) produce 10% heat to 90% light. So you are lighting up that plastic box more than you are heating the air in it. I like DIY projects.....but not this one.Home made pond heater looks interesting to me....
This is what I don't see on my pond breather. Where exactly is the tubing 'locked'? Looks like the only thing that was holding my pump up was two zip ties on the heating element and these allowed the tube to slide down.tubing locks in so the pump can not pull down the tube.
