Do these need to be at 75 degrees Fahrenheit or above all year round? Or will they do alright at 70 degrees Fahrenheit?
Size of mat affects wattage. The 7 and 8 watts are 6x8 or so. The 8 x 20 is 24W. The pad I linked to stated it should not be used on plastic so I'd ask others what they use on their plastic tubsI have mine in a plastic tub (approximately 20WX40LX20D) and I am going with a lower wattage heater. I see they also sell 12, 7 and 8W heaters. I am going to read the reviews; maybe someone will have a suggestion for size. My room stays about 72 so I just need a little boost. I was looking at that same brand.
Thank you and yes, I will certainly research it. What I bought before was actually set up as a kit by the manufacturer. I may have to puzzle something together. You know those metal pie cookers for campfires? I think I could fashion something from that. >brain cells kicking in overdrive <.Size of mat affects wattage. The 7 and 8 watts are 6x8 or so.

Bahaha! I totally won't do anything stupid; no worrries. My daddy was an electrician and I have complete respect for electricity. Hopefully I can find one suitable for the side wall of a plastic bin. But if I have to mcgiver something; well I'm good at that. Creative overload. Smoky Bear is my friend. And stuff like that.(firefighter in me cringes) Just be careful.
