    Default Heat mat lumpy?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Ok so the last few heat mats I've had seem to always be lumpy on the bottom. Is that ok, for them to feel lumpy?

    Is it the area where the cord enters the mat or are you not sticking them on flat to the bottom? What brand do you use?

    Please snap a photo, thanks!

    Ok,yes I will take a picture. It is flat it just seems like the cloth or leather part is kinda lumpy,I am using a zilla 10-20. I would take it off then put it back on but apparently it will damage

    The cloth part is usually the exterior, taking them off does damage them, so either return or if it isn't the heating part, it should be fine. I think the cloth exterior having small ripples or bumps is normal for Zilla UTHs.

    Ok, and it is giving heat, the temp usually ranges from 93-95 degrees

    Be careful, you want it between 89-92F. Maybe add a few layers of paper towel since you can't get the thermostat?
