    Congratulations on your new Bator! I love mine. It really keeps the temperature constant for me. [​IMG]

    I think the heating element is the metal tube that goes around inside of the top.

    I hope you have a great hatch. [​IMG] Have fun!

    I love my Genesis 1588! I every egg that I have put in it that has been fertile has developed! I only lost 2 and those got bacteria from being dropped and puncturing the membrane. I do have to run it with water in both water areas through the entire hatch just to keep the humidity at 50%, but our area is not very humid at all so that plays a part in that. All I have to do is just keep them filled and I have NEVER had a problem with the temp either. Good Luck! I hope you love yours as much as I do mine. [​IMG]

    Well Kellim so far i'm amazed and in love with the genesis for sure.The only problem at all so far in the first 3 days is i'm bored with it there isn't anything i need to do i go and check the temp/humidity like 3 times an hour just because im used to fussing with the old bators i had this thing is very low maintenance. Like i said almost tooo easy.
