I wouldn't! It says it works on 230V and has no insulation on the resistance strips so it would make whatever it's immersed, in *live*, and if your lucky just blow a fuse or breaker. It is an air over type heater, putting it in water would be like a scene in a murder movie where they put a toaster in the bath tub.
