I'm looking for new heater and I see on Eheim's site that they sell two heaters -
Thermocontrol and Thermopreset.

When shopping on-line for a Thermocontrol, I get results for...

TruTemp
Thermostat
Ebo

But no Thermocontrol?

Are these all the same heaters?

This is what I think and found......

Different countries call the same product a different name. From eheims site there are only 2 types of heaters.......

The jager- the one you can adjust the temp manually

And the thermopreset- it is already preset to a certain temp.

If you go to eBay just type in Eheim Jager, but you need to look for one that is sold in Fahrenheit and NOT Celsius. I think the ebo is the one sold as Celsius. The trutemp looks like it is in Fahrenheit.

If you have any doubts ask the seller if the heater is in Fahrenheit or if it is in Celsius. And if the heater is adjustable or preset.

Good Luck!

Thanks.

I just ordered a TruTemp.

On the temperature type, it looks like the dial on top actually has both
Fahrenheit and Celsius. Pretty smart design if that's the case.

When you get your heater DO NOT touch the dials until you start to calibrate it.

Here is a video on how to calibrate a Eheim jager.
