Thermostat pod details for DIY heated chicken waterer

thermostat pod details for an electric pipe heater


Our pipe heating cable has a thermostat pod encased in clear plastic.

The pilot light will come on when the temperature reaches 38 degrees or you can push down on the switch to activate it for testing purposes.

It's important to position the pod so that the switch doesn't get pushed in by any type of pressure, otherwise the unit will not shut off when it warms up.
