Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Got this when the weather was in the 20 We had been busting ice for over a week ordered this on Thursday revived it on Monday. Worked great had to use it for about 2 weeks never had a bit of ice even when temperatures went into the single digits

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great design I bought one of these a few years back and I can say it works great but requires a lot of upkeep. The aluminum design submerged in water and having an electrical current causes calcium lime build up. It sticks to the heater causing hot spots and gets lime settlement in the bottom of your tank. To clean you have to submerge the de-icer in vinegar. This will eat away the lime deposits and you will still have to take a wire brush to get it all off. Once your done put back in and the lime starts to build up again. However, the water never froze. Cord eventually wore out causing an electrical current to carry through the water.

I want to put in a 100 gal aluminum tank for 2 horses.  How deep should the water be kept above the top of the Deicer?

Asked by: wegetcold
The deicer will need to be submerged in water. It is thermostatically controlled so it will continue to heat between the periods whether it is in or out of water – having the unit running with no water for an extended period of time can potentially burn out the element.

Can you use this in a 50 gallon rubermaid water tank?

Asked by: Banjo86
As long as it doesn't rest directly on the plastic bottom or sides and the water level doesn't get low, it will be safe.

I'm thinking of using this in a tank pond. I live in Ohio. How expensive is it to run?Don't want a unreasonable electric bill.

Asked by: Bunzie
There is no way we can find out how much it would cost to run. It is thermostatically controlled to operate only when necessary so it really depends on how cold of a winter one has. The H-419 is a 1500 Watt unit which pulls about 12.5 amps.

I have plastic 55 gallon drums cut in half for water, can this unit be placed on the bottom of the plastic drum with no concern for melting through>

Asked by: Tundra Stalker
This product is best for use in cold climates and stock tanks from 150 - 300 gal. The heavy-duty cast aluminum design is virtually indestructible and can be used in metal, rubber, or plastic tanks without the need for an additional guard.
