Does this work in Non-Metal Rubbermaid 100 gallon tubs?

Asked by: tammytwin2
Only if it has the same 2" size drain hole that's on the plastic ones. If not, you can use our UPH-15 Universal Drain plug deicer.

Can I use in the 50 gallon Rubbermaid Structural Foam stock tank? If we were to drill a hole for a plug? 

Asked by: Swimm1975
The following is a response from the manufacturer: The drain plug holes in the Rubbermaid stock tank should be totally removed then install our Model DPH-15 into the existing drain plug hole from the Rubbermaid stock tank. There are detailed directions for installation in the box.

Can you use an extension cord?

Asked by: Jheideb23
While we don't recommend the use of extension cords, if you must use one make sure it's a heavy duty outdoor extension cord as short as possible. We also recommend the use of our Cord Connect Model CC-1 (TSC Sku #1042639) between the two plugs as it will lock the cords together and provide a water-tight connection.

I have had this for a few years and it works great but this year we went to install it and the Clear Washer is Broken, Can I buy a replacement for that somewhere?

Asked by: CDumas
If it's a clear washer, it's another brand. The plastic nut/washer for our DPH-15 is all black.

Can this be used with a solar panel for the power source and what would it take to do this ?

Asked by: Joycedrn1
This model cannot be used with a solar panels as solar panels do not generate enough amperage to operate this product, per it's design, correctly.
