Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well Despite rubber washer need large pliers to tighten adequately to prevent leaks after installation. Needed to do this to both. This is my second one. Recommend buying warranty. This is Better and safer than the drop in or floating heaters since I have a busy mare that likes to pull out those types of heaters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great investment I had the traditional floating water heaters.... first time I used then, I realized my mistake. My stallion had the cord in his mouth and was swinging it like he was in a burlesque show. Promptly switched to these submersibles, and I never have a frozen tank....

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 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.

Does this need to be grounded? I have always used the drop in heater and had to ground the tank even in the Rubbermaid tanks.

Asked by: K HH Farms
We always recommend grounding your stock tank while using any of our deicers. Just an added protection for the animals.

How hot does it make the water??

Asked by: itokuzu
It will not get the water hot. It's only designed to keep water from freezing and turns on at approximately 35 degrees water temperature.

does it have over temperature protection the tank goes empty

Asked by: robj
If the tank runs dry, it would still sense the ambient air temperature and turn on if it got cold enough. However, it would only heat for less than a minute before shutting off. This is normal and not a problem since the unit is not touching the tank.
