Cheap plastic power bars that cost way too fricking much, you'd think they'd use some high temperature thermoplastic dohicky stuff. This cold weather has caused my heater to go overboard on my 300g pond. Of course to be fair the outlet is only rated at 8 amps, and the 1000 watt heater is technically 8.33 amps, but still. Smelled this burnt smell this morning before I left for work, wife suggested downstairs, and good god burnt plastic mess, I turned the power off to the bar, and just yanked hard on the plug and it did not want to come, this plastic plug dohick popped out of the power bar, and some more pulling and one of the prongs of the heater plug pulled out too. I think I can get the plug part and just pop it back into the power bar, but I'll have to see, for now it's no go on that one. luckily I had a couple 400W heaters, and threw one in, but 400watts was not enough to keep it warm, it was down to 72 when I got home, another 400 watts in (on a different circuit) and hopefully that should keep it up.
