Great for a number of uses: De-ice any tanks up to 50 gallons. Can be used as an over-sized Bucket De-icer. Can be used as a Patio Pond De-icer.
Cast Aluminum design dictates safety, durability and efficiency. Thermostatically controlled to operate only when necessary.
works great. I have several. I put them in kiddie pools for my dogs, water fowl and poultry . best one I have tried so far. I had another brand that kept throwing breakers used a lot of electric.
"Great product but not thermostatically controlled"
This is a terrific, durable and handy de-icer. It is a little power house, place it on a solid block of ice and in less than a minute there will be a complete hole shaped just like the unit. That being said, it does not have a thermostat, the thermostatic control unit can be bought separately. I purchased mine from Tractor Supply. When I read the information on the box in the store I was under the impression that it had a controller. It wasn't until we read the material inside the box that we figured out a controller would need to be purchased separately. I only use this unit when it gets really cold, so not having the controller isn't much of an issue. When you dip your hand in the bucket though it is a little like bath water! My horse happens to like warmer water, so it works for me. Overall, this is a great product, just don't expect the temperature control.
