My only worry with the Pentair Lifeguard is that the heater is held in place by compressing an o-ring around the heater itself. While the o-ring should not suffer from the heat I always felt uneasy that the glass heater may break and basically open the system and cause a beautiful flood.
That being said to me personally the Hydor in-line filters seem like a better choice. There are posts from folk that have used them, do a search for them. I haven't used one so I cannot really talk about them.
