Pros: integrated into filter
Cons: integrated into filter

I bought this heater at the same time that I bought the PF150 filter. Everything worked great for a year and a half. Then the heater stopped working. The light indicates that the element should be hot and active, but no hot water comes out of the filter. However, the problem may have begun with a loss of water in the filter, which may have caused the element to go out. In tank heaters won\'t have this problem unless the whole tank is emptied out. It heats the water rapidly since water is forced over the element, which is better than passive, in-tank heaters. I\'m buying another one to replace my bad one, and I will also buy an in-tank style one as well as a back up.
