Hi guys,

I have built a tank before in South America, I used a spa heater and filtration. But now I'm planning on building a tank in my studio/room, I won't have as much space and ability to make noise, so my question is, how long will it take to heat a normal sized tank with a water mattress heater? the heater I'm planning to get is a 240-wattflat unit.

So how long before the session should I put to heat?, Do I need to turn on every day?

Thanks!

A tank is always supposed to be heated. You dont turn the heater on one day and off the next. It runs all day and night. That is if you want to float every day, or even every other day, or even once a week.
How long it takes to heat a tank depends on how warm the water is. If you have never warmed it it can take a few days to warm to the most basic 93.5, which is cold to me.
Also you would be looking to use a hardside water bed heater, with some type of digital tempertaure control
