My heater's pilot light comes on and off regularly, but this leads to another question: how do heaters work? I don't mean how do they heat the water, but how do they regulate heating? Is there a timer, or a thermometer?
I unplugged the heater and stopped using ice. The temperature is now 88 degrees F, back on the thermometer, but just barely. (The thermometer is an LCD.) Just a theory I was testing when the temperature was really high, if the water is warm to the touch, it's hotter than body temperature. If it's cool to the touch, it's cooler than body temperature. Is this right? The water was dangerously close to lukewarm, and if my angels can survive 98 degree water, that's awesome, but I don't think it was actually close to that hot. Since I got the kit for Christmas, do you think there's a warranty on the heater?
But I might have thrown the thing I needed for it away when a bunch of water splashed on it...
