Re: [AGA Member] Heater

I guess we seem to agree to disagree.
Actually I believe quite the opposite is true. 

With a heater that is too small the heater will be on for longer periods
of time.  This causes the high current to run for longer periods of time
eventually causing distortion, and corrosion at the contacts, and 
burning out the heating element faster.

With the 5 watts/gallon rule of thumb, or just plain using a larger heater
than required, the unit will cycle a what is considered a normal interval
and function for longer before any maintenance, or disposal, is required.
